Thats the short pipes I see on your bike now??? If so, I really don't like the look of the short pipes. Shows to much of the wheel and swing arm.

Love loud pipes!!
The only exception to that is what I witnessed last week, where some guy was riding an over-priced Harley that was obnoxiously loud. I mean I've never heard anything even close to this loud. He must be getting pulled over by the cops everywhere he goes

I like loud pipes. I'm still running stock but I have always thought it was too quiet and no real tone to enjoy
Hit up our North American friends for a stock US muffler. Most of our buddies will give it to you for the cost of postage. It's quite different to the AU/EU/UK one and it sounds much better. I have one and my dealer says my bike is the best sounding bike they have heard in 50 years (my spike air cleaner also helps).

I have a set.
I was thinking about getting straight pipes made up with bracket to hold the factory chrome cover so it still looked stock. I have been quoted $250au. How much would you want for your muffler and I have to work out postage costs so I can weigh up if it's worth it for me

Ok can you message me your address and I'll go find out what the freight will cost. I'll need you to weigh the muffler before I can find out because they go by weight

Straight through pipes don't sound very good. You need some sort of baffle to take out the high frequencies. The great thing about the US muffler is that it has Honda stamped on it so if the cops pull you over and question your bike's noise you can say that it's a stock Honda muffler and point to the Honda stamp on the case. You just forget to say it's not a stock AU muffler.....LOL.

This happened to me during a random breath check one Saturday morning. They had two cops checking bikes after the breath test looking for defects so they could write you up. I got asked about my exhaust and I told them it's a stock Honda muffler and pointed to the stamp on the casing then the cop was a smart arse and bent down to see if he could see any baffles and he did, so he said it looks legit. The Harley guy in front of me was not so lucky.

My bike before was a track bike with a headlight and I had a gp 8" pipe on it. It was so loud it would hurt your ears if you didn't have them covered and I never got pulled over on it.

You were lucky. Don't try that in NSW, especially in Sydney. The cops are everywhere and they love giving bikers tickets. One of the cops favourite tricks is to set up by the side of popular motorcycle roads (places like the old Pacific hwy) and pull up every bike that goes past.

I love loud pipes......on other people's bikes. I have the Cobra swept with the baffels and they are about the right sound. When I was in highschool I had a 76 KZ750 and ran a 4 into 1 Kerker without the baffel, now that's loud.

I have the monster thunder baffles. I think they are about as close as you can get to a straight pipe and still have a baffle. I love the sound. Just in Cobra slip ons. It's really not much more than a metal washer that hangs down in the middle.

Around here loud pipes MAY get texters to look up for a second. I was driving my Civic on I-75 up to my son's place to install my FP pipes yesterday and watched a big-rig's tail end recovering from almost going off the road. Truckers texting on the highway! SMH!!! It's bad around town w/students and other non-professional drivers doing it. Ride SAFE out there! Ya gotta watch out for idiots! And, always look for that "escape route".

Have you heard those Cobra sweeps without the baffles though? I rode with another Fury rider that had them pulled and it made my jaw drop. LOL I knew right there in that instant, "I gotta do that!" It's not an overbearing, annoying type of loud. It's just mean... beastly... (Try it! You can always put 'em back in.)

Oh yeah. I have heard them without the baffle and love the way they sound. I have tinnitus and that effects the sounds that are comfortable for me.

This is the top of my head at Thunder Beach a couple years ago. I was about 10 back waiting on the red to go green, and when it does it's full scale loud.
