Question Two Brother exhaust installed - too loud!

Hi,

Based on the discussions here and the videos of the TBR exhaust, I decided to get it installed. However, i find them to be too loud, way more than what the videos suggested. Either my neighbours are gonna complain or traffic cops are gonna pull me up!

Is there any dB killer insert for it? I had read about something similar for the Firebrand exhaust in the best slip on thread. I'd really appreciate your help on this.

In addition, there's a crazy amount of deceleration pop. Is there any way to get rid of it?


Thanks,
Vignesh

Dear Vignesh,

Even i was looking for an exhaust upgrade even i posted a poll last month for the feedback. TBR was the clear winner in that. The reason suggested by many was, it is longer than other hence contains a better rumble than others.
Also, the performance parameters are one of the best in competition. So, if the noise is too loud and parallel deceleration observed seems to eb fitment issue to me. Did you get it from HD service or some other mechanic?

Initially I installed it on my own but a heat shield clamp broke so I had to go the service center to get a new one. While fitting it, they had to remove and install the exhaust again.

So I'm not sure if fitment is indeed the problem.

Hooked on to the thread.

I also am planning for the TBR itself, but if these are the issues then that might have to start the search again.

Is it too loud even during cruising speeds or just on higher rpms?

I went for a HOG ride yesterday and this is definitely the loudest one around! (amongst Street)

Maybe I should let it grow on me, I've been on the stock for a year and a half so this sudden increase in sound might take some time to get used to.

TBR has mentioned that there are dB killers (known as Powertip) for their exhausts, costing between $30-$40. I've written to them if it would fit this exhaust, I'll keep you posted on their response.

I did some reading on decel pops and they appear to be present in all exhausts, be it stock or aftermarket. However, since aftermarket exhausts are more open than stock, pops can be heard. I shall take it to the service center over the weekend and check if they can do something about it.

Hey man, I am from Pune, too bad these rides dont have an intro section.

Anyways will try to meet in the next combined ride, I would really love to hear your TBR before ordering one for myself.

Yeah definitely. We could even plan a breakfast ride to Kamat Khandala sometime.

When I installed my TB exhaust, I thought it was too loud also. But after riding it for six months, I love it! I've had local police & highway patrol follow me for miles at a time and I was worried about the noise, but, I've never been pulled over. Just keep riding, you'll get used to it, then love it.
