    Quiet aftermarket exhuast

    Hello everyone,

    I'm in the market for some new pipes and I like my exhaust to be on the more quiet side of the spectrum.

    Which aftermarket pipes (or pipe/baffle combination) makes the least amount of noise?

    Anyone who has heard several different kinds in real life on the M50 have any direction for me?

    I've tried listening to all the options on youtube videos and the exhaust posts here but the "extra loud" and the "relatively quiet" don't sound a whole lot different through poor quality video uploads so it's hard to tell how they translate to real life.

    Thanks in advance for any input/advice!

    The Jardine 2 into 1 isn't "quiet" but it is quieter than the Morton's Violators. I didn't feel bad about starting it in my neighborhood early in the morning with the Jardines. I'm going to look for a way to baffle the Violator's this summer.

    You could always just get the quietest ones you can find. Smartpartz.com makes baffle inserts you can put into pretty much any exhaust. Would work. I put them in the cobra exhaust in my bike, and they work really well.

    I thought the only thing louder than Violators was cutting off the muffler at the header lol

    Definitely have been checking out smartpartz.com seems like a good option to quiet any pipe. But what's the quietest starting point?

    I think unbaffled drag pipes are actually louder than the Violators on an M, but I haven't heard them in person. Even with the Violators, when my buddy starts up his 1200 Sporty I can barely hear my M. He's got the Screamin' Eagle slip-ons. When I showed him the Violators he said, "Those look nice - they're not too loud either. I mean, not obnoxious or raspy or anything." In the end, it is only a low compression 800.

    Old ones are stock - changing because they are scuffed from tip over.

    I don't need the super obscure extra quiet type. Just out of the mainstream options what is a good starting point?

    The cobra classic slash cuts say they are not too loud. Almost all the other descriptions I've read just say they sound good.

    I guess it is just a little 800 not a lot of bark, but loud noise just gets to me after a while riding, prefer to keep that to a minimum.

    Thanks for the help/suggestions so far.

    I have the first baffle cut out of my stockers and it is not that loud but the drone on the interstate will really get to you, especially wearing a full face. I would think any after market pipe will probably give you drone problems.

    I tend to think of things like that as "character" if it isn't TOO bad.

    Sounds to me like you need something with a real muffler type baffle and that's pretty hard to locate except for stock.
    Might want to ask if anybody has a set of stockers in good shape.......IF you were satisfied with them before they got damaged.

    I was fine with them, I just don't want to pay Suzuki's price for new ones, ridiculous. I have been looking at ebay for some used ones but they are all damaged. Guess I just need some patience! Thanks everyone.

    Ask HERE.
    There may be some near perfect ones laying around that the owner just needs a little "tweek" to part with !!

    Where are you located bonecrusher? I've got a set of stockers that have been "honest abed" that we can talk about if you're interested.
