    Poll: How Do You Feel About Loud Pipes?



    'Loud pipes save lives' and 'the louder it is the faster it is' are all phrases you’ve probably heard before, but for a lot of people – particularly the non-riding public – loud exhausts prove to be obnoxious. Which camp do you find yourself in?

    on my Harley I have louder than stock pipes but they are not full open ear shattering pipes. I have had a lot of compliments from non riders on the sound.

    on my FZ pipes are stock and will probably remain that way

    That poll does not have enough choices... I like a little louder pipe. Some of the ones out there I've heard a just ridiculous loud. Not sure why but I get embarrassed to be near them.

    I was on the patio at the pub the other day (in a strip mall type complex where there are concrete walls everywhere to resonate sound) and some douche canoe gets on his straight piped s1000rr and starts bouncing it off the rev limiter. The entire patio started booing him, it was great. All of our ears were ringing for a while after

    I dont mind the loud pipes, it's the revving at the light that annoys the shit out of me lol. No offense to harley riders, but it seems like 100% of them do this at a light. What gives lol.

    I think excessively loud exhausts sound terrible on anything and I hold as much contempt for obnoxious bikes as I do for guys who want to put Cherry Bombs on their cars. I think about the way my dad's Mustang GT sounded. Loud enough to appreciate it, you could easily hear music over it, even with the top down, and it still had a nice, deep V-8 rumble.

    As far as my FZ goes, I think it's plenty loud enough. Like I said earlier, I appreciate a deep, throaty engine sound, though. If I could drop the sound an octave or two, I'd be very happy.

    It's to help their Harley's from stalling, lol.

    +1 guys who rev the engine at stop light are idiots, and guys who bounce the rpm's off the rev limiters are complete morons.

    Here's a quote for y'all.........

    "If Loud pipes save lives, just imagine what learning to ride the thing would do!"

    PS.....I have to give credit to PJ's Parts store for coming up with that, as they sell (or did sell) an orange T-Shirt with that saying on it!

    I like loud exhausts, but I don't like the tickets that go along with clearly broadcasting your throttle inputs to everyone in a mile radius. I could care less about the noise pollution, though.

    Sometimes I would like to be able to rev at people to get their attention.
