I went and tested my bike and my girls f4i with a gianelli slip on.
Both failed,hers just barley but she only wound it up to 3,000 rpm and got 91.3 not sure what the idle was.
My zx12 with a yoshimira rs3 can
read 91 at idle and 96.7 at 4500 rpm.
Funny thing was the cops said "I can tell you will both pass" when we rolled in.
Better dig out you old stock cans if you plan on riding in the city.
Oh and they really did not like my tinted headlight covers.
Guess it would be up to a cop to decide if they wanted to pull you over for a exhaust check, usually I just pull my clutch in and coast by a cop as to not give them a reason to pull me over for "loud exhaust" since the S1000RR is already loud with the stock can.
But the tinted headlight covers... now that is gold!
Oh one more thing they said to mention they will be there tomorrow as well. Maybe there has not been that great a turn out?
Also one officer said the decibel meter app on his I-phone got the exact same readings as the $600 unit the police have.
Guess it was a good thing we all went together or right now someone would be going, "how the hell did this happen??!?!"
One good thing I just discovered is I can get an insert from yoshimura for my pipe.It just slides in the end and two allen screws hold it in
It costs $20 and will drop the sound up to 10db.
I like the way my bike sounds and don't want to put one in ,but I don't want a ticket either.
well it's not squished... just a "little" impact damage.. ok... its now a little ball of metal... died an honorble death.. went with me roughly 50,000k's... thanks for the help... think I would be just a little pissed right about now...
Best way to avoid a sound ticket,Stay out of the down town core.Any down town core.
Yes we all know of the awesome turns and loooong staights in the city and don't forget........POSSIN at STARSCHMUCKS for those who can't rider proper.
only on the "SM side" can you have unlimited power!
Time to look for a small lock or even a safety pin to hold the zippers closed... it's happened to me and luckily all I had was a chain and wire lock inside, nothing came out luckily but I make it a rule to make sure to double check everything... you are lucky your keys didn't fall out either... they were hanging by a thread.
