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?

first of all the germans never invaded poland...they were invited, punch was served - check with poland.

(that is only really funny if you watch family guy and not meant to insuinate that WWII never happened)

it seems to me that you will not get any kind of noise dampening effect without glass packing of some sort. You could try a set of cheapie cherry bomb car mufflers which are basically straight through with glass packed around them. should mellow the bike some. The other option I can think of is a supertrap like setup. You can probably beg branson (oh and paying him helps too) to roll you a set of straight through megs with the supertrap ends. I don't think either will have an effect on your backpressure.

That being said unless you have some work done or at least a good carb rejetting I have yet to see a honda that ran better with straight pipes than factory mufflers.
