Default Re: Silence my bike

Interesting thread. One more benefit to a quieter exhaust is you would be able to hear if something suddenly changes elsewhere on the bike... a rubbing sound, screech or other indicator something's not right. I also don't like disturbing everything in the forest when I ride. The quieter I am the more I see in deer and bear and such. A little noise is good to announce your presence, but too much is really offensive to all including myself. I'll be following this one to see if there are simple fixes. I'm going to try the rubber hose deal after the silencer to see what effect it has. Somebody is going to come up with something super low tech. Gotta love this forum. You guys are the best!
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
