What I mean about loud pipes but not disturbing is I put around in town at 2500rpms not shifting at 6500rpms showing off.
I know my post sounded a bit harsh, but it's the people who are doing the high rev crap with straight pipes who are going to be the first to bitch when they get the ticket for improper exhaust.
I completely respect your freedom to do what you want to your bike, and I hope you understand my freedom to detest loud street motorcycle exhaust.
The last exhaust I put on a single and was happy with was a Supertrapp EAR system on a Honda EX300 quad I used to own. Between the pipe, jetting, UNI air filter, and a Curtis Sparks unlimited rev brain box, the quad when from very boring to very fun. I don't know if the EAR system will add the sound you want, since I don't think it was much louder than the stock exhaust that came on my 250 Recon that I have now.
Firefighter_Joe, the exhaust I put on the Strom is the Leo Vince cans, where I left the baffle in. Nice low rumble, and unless you're running it above 6-7 grand, remains just about as quiet as stock. I think the only thing quieter than the Leo's is the Akrapovic stuff.
Now for you old timers.. Do you remember the day you were pulled over by the police because your Cherry Bomb exhaust grabbed someone's attention, only to get a ticket for loud exhaust?? Now, if you think about it, you'll also remember that that exhaust was quieter than some of the stock pipes that come on bikes these days..
The laws are still on the books for loud exhaust. Several communities are starting to enforce them on motorcycles, and more are considering this, too.. If you decide to install LOUD exhaust, you might want to save some money for fines, also.
