    Welcome to the forum.

    Yep, the TB is apocalyptically loud! You might want to think about buying stock or scorpion cans then you'll break even or better when you sell the TB.

    Re: New Bike, first bike!

    hiya and welcome,
    I have delkoviks on my bike and it came with dB killers but the cans are still rated as track only.
    To get around the noise issue I havestuffed the insert with stainless steel exhaust wool and wrapped the dB inser t with fibre glass woven exhaust packing. It has lasted about 18 months and now is just starting to give that burble sound when I back off and coast for a bit. My concer , as yours, is for my neighbours and that I dont want to sound obnoxious. I know this doesn't he;lp your particular issue but we all have the same concerns.
    I too remember the discussion a few years back of someone using a washer in the exhaust flow to slow down the escaping exhaust and I remember talking to an MT-10 owner years ago that had used the same technique.

    the only thing I can offer is you could search for dB killers on the web and check how they fit and then how you might need to augment the packing, thats the road I followed until going down the extra packing method.
    cheers
    Adrian

    I've looked into the P1-X insert, which sucks because it will cost almost $70 to get them and from what I've read their effect isn't as extreme as I'd like.


    Thanks!

    Welcome to Forum!

    I also have the TB exhaust. The stock system was just too darn quiet and a multi-camed, multi-valved engine certainly needs to sing a little on occasion.
    I had installed the system over a weekend a few years ago when I was doing various other things and ran the engine only a little to check for any leaks. On Monday morning
    I hopped on and headed for work. I hadn't even ridden for a mile when I realized the exhaust was extremely loud and while most LEOs do not normally stop anyone
    for loud exhaust I rolled off the throttle when one passed me by. As soon as I arrived at work I ordered a pair of the P1-X tips and did not ride again after returning home until
    I installed them. The result is a much more tuned sound and as others have mentioned, if you stay below 2500 rpms the sound is not disturbing at all. When you are able to run it up though,
    you will appreciate the free flow sound and weight reduction is a bonus as well. Best of luck!
