Aftermarket exhaust

Hey guys, I’ve been thinking about getting a new exhaust for this bike. The honda stock exhaust is way to quiet and I want something a little louder just for simple safety reasons and maybe to add a little performance definitely not something cheap. Any recommendations?

Keep it quiet. Leave it stock. Loud pipes do not save lives. Loud pipes piss people off. You are not in high school any more. You will gain nothing performance wise. Want more performance, buy a liter bike.

Aftermarket exhaust

I disagree. While LOUD pipes are annoying, louder pipes than stock are an added safety benefit. Hearing is one of the senses and as a cager Iíve often heard bikes before seeing them. Also, I have a slip on (GPR Furore) with baffle in. Itís louder than stock and Iíve noticed other road users can hear me better.

Ever nearly been run over by an electric car or bike?

Re performance. I agree. Want more power, get a more powerful bike.

Oh Hills, Yes your bike looks cool & I am sure sounds cool too, but really no bloody need to swap out the can. My stock bike is quiet enough that I can catch the boyfriend sneaking out my wifeís back door. There is no silencer on my All American Second Amendment pistol. We are a crazy bunch!

I put on a Leo Vince slip on for looks, weight loss and a nice growl. It's definitely not loud but looks and sounds great.

Hey Hills, I should apologize. I was really just taking a bit of the mickey, no worries. Of course I understand that being heard can be advantageous in certain situations. For me, however, the world is already a bit too noisey of a place & I simply do not want to add to the din. On the other hand, I do wear all the hi-viz kit, which makes the world uglier, but hopefully safer. Cheers
