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?

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 I’ve often heard bikes before seeing them. Also, I have a slip on (GPR Furore) with baffle in. It’s louder than stock and I’ve 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 wife’s back door. There is no silencer on my All American Second Amendment pistol. We are a crazy bunch!

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

Which have you decided to go with?

I had the Leo Vince on my 2014 500F and I just put one on my 2018 today. For the money it's brilliant, I paid 235 dollars with free shipping from Revzilla. It comes with an optional db killer that makes it just slightly louder than stock. Without the db killer it's not all that loud and has a nice tone. It's certainly not nearly as loud as bikes I see every day. It's also much lighter than OEM and looks a lot better in my opinion. The number one reason I bought the LV was I couldn't hear my bike with the stock exhaust.

Two Brothers Storm Series Hurricane Slip-On Exhaust Honda CBR500R 2016-2018 (Material: Carbon Fiber). It sounds good installation was easy but I noticed some slight air leakage and there's really nothing more to do to tighten it more. I think I am going to reinstall it with "gasket maker" to seal it a little further.
Cheers

I you tubed a load. Top ones are too much money. I thought Lextek sound good. They do quite a few different types. That upswept megaphone doesn't look bad either.

Two Brothers Exhaust sounds really good on this engine. It's not so loud it's disturbing the peace but loud enough most cagers recognize there is a bike in the vicinity. I do think the stock exhaust is too quiet for that purpose alone. I plan on upgrading my new bike with an exhaust as well.

Did yours come with a rubber liner for the clamp?

I got mine in last week, and it did not.

Years ago, I had a Honda 305 SuperHawk which had the same crank and piston configuration. The one difference that would make a difference is that it had two separate exhaust pipes, and not a 2-into-1 like our stock CB500Fs. Almost everyone who purchased one of those old Superhawks, me included, put on a set of megaphones (not shorties) that made that 305cc sound AWESOME - sort of like a Tiger growling. Deep tone and pretty loud. They came with removable flat end baffle and without the baffles, I loved the sound.

If I could set this one up like that. I would do it in a minute. It would take separating the exhaust pipes, and then adding the megs. With the extra 200cc's that the 500 has ought to make them sound even better than the older 305's.

Here is an internet pic of similar exhaust that I had, but these are aftermarket (as were mine) but these actually have "guts" in them. Mine were totally empty.
