More silent exhaust
« on: March 23, 2020, 06:07:38 PM »
I actually want to make my exhaust more silent than it currently is. Stock 2018 XCx... Does anybody have any suggestions?

A buddy of mine with a gen1 R800 GS added a removable 6-inch tailpipe (held on with springs) to the outlet of his muffler. He claims that it works great.

I can see how that'll help and it's easier with the GS because the exhaust pipe actually sticks out... Hmmmm...

Or you could just keep it under 3000 RPM. :745:

I love how I can do 75 MPH and not sound like I'm doing it and a loud pipe enthusiast attracts the attention of every LEO in two county radius even going at 40. I want to be more silent, more stealth...

I totally get your point!

Better ear plugs?  :150:

Know exactly what you mean though. I can hear sports bikes from miles away on a favorite road close to me.

God dammit! This is exactly what I need! Let me forward this to my Triump tech... I don't think he has anything else better to do nowadays...   :047: 

Merci beaucoup Nik.  :821:

On my 2015 TEX with a "Madstat" windscreen, Nolan N-104 and Hearos 33db earplugs, I can hear the intake more than the exhaust when cranking on.  This was even more noticeable after replacing the air filter.  I will have to have someone else do a WOT drive by for me someday so I can hear the exhaust for myself.

Yes, I find the induction roar from the airbox makes up a lot of the noise, but I like it.
