one more exhaust question

a buddy of mine is trying to figure out how to quiet down his cb450. he has tt pipes that are wide open and so loud i can hear him a quarter mile from my house. he bought a set of small metal baffles that you set in with a screw but he claimed it made little to no difference. what are his options other than mufflers?

The 450 is just a loud bike, even with the stock pipes it'll set off car alarms. Get a set of cheap JC whitney megs with the reverse cone, it'll do pretty well for the price. Or go supertrapp, but don't expect it to get much quieter! If your bike 'goes like the dickens' now just wait till you give it some backpressure!

The absolute best thing you can do for yourself and your bike is find some other loonies in your area who suffer the same affliction: I know Milwaukee ain't too close but they do host some great events...

like M2M.
