Loud pipes

  1. I have noticed a lot of talk about the law and loud pipes. Is there a way to check the pipes and see how many decibels is coming out. Or is there a meter a man could buy to check it himself. :(

    Unfortunately those people who over rev their throttles are the one who are going to ruin it for all of us. and In the long run more people will even up being killed or injured because of this when the government clamps down
  6. Tanx you rock I found a free db meter for my iphone.
  7. Noise level

    I downloaded a app for my iphone to check how many db my new pipes were putting out. It said in the federal noise limits for motorcycles 3 meters away. Which is about 9 feet. When I checked it mine never got past 55 db's.
