Post your exhaust's decibel level here
Ok, so there are a bunch of bike-botherers out there, checking DB levels on after market pipes and throwing tickets around like confetti for "noise disturbances" and the like. Ka-phooey.
Thought if bike owners with after market exhausts could post the DB level of their pipes here it would really help people like me that are in the market for a new set, but keen to find out if they fall within the limits of our local constabulary before ponying up the bucks.
There's an app called Decibel 10th (I just downloaded it) that seems to be right on the money. It's free - so go ahead, do a guy a favour and tell us how loud (or quiet, it's all good) your pipes are. Cobra, V&H, Road Burners...slip-ons or full systems...the more info on DB levels, the better.
Ideally 2 readings, one when idling (take the measurement about 50cm away from the muffler, and at a 45 degree angle away from it) and one at, say, 2500 rpm (approx).
Keeping it legit, but barely...
