I've noticed that some of these conversion suppliers advertise their engines as being 'quiet' some even super quiet. But quiet as compared to what....a lawnmower? I know for a fact that even leaf blowers can make quite a racket of alot of noise. Perhaps someone has posted a video clip with sound of an engine converted bike.

I won't kid you - a stroke engine is a bit loud - but not as loud as a chainsaw or leaf blower. But there are things you can do for the noise.

Despite my dislike of 4 stroke engines power to weight ratio - they are more quiet.

I watched the dueling Titans video, and they almost sound as a street scooter, but hard to tell. Obviously, the more you throttle up...the louder it gets. I bet if you get a heavier muffler, you might get some further noise suppression.

I watched that on Daxs website but turned it off cause I think the wind noise was sooo annoying.........Not the sound of the motor.....
