Loudest exhaust for honda 919

Hey guys,

New to the forum, but I was wondering if anyone is familiar with the following exhausts/mufflers for the 919? Specifically, of the three, which would be the loudest?

Erion
Scorpion
D&D

Thanks,

Dave

I simply don't understand why anyone would spend hard earned money & buy an exhaust with no concern for craftsmanship, build quality, performance or customer support.

Just as long as it's loud it's all good

Pathetic...

Loudest would be to just lose your mufflers altogether. It's what all the cool kids do.

One man's junk is another man's treasure.

My "loud pipes save lives" is sarcasm. I guess you people are sensitive to that, for some reason.

No need to be mean. Isn't it all just a matter of preference? LIke any changes one makes to a moto, people have different preferences. There are reasons why exhausts are made to produce different sounds, revs, increase in horsepower, etc.

Intelligent? Or ignorant? You're probably the latter.

You could take it to the muffler shop and have them bend some pipe to route exhaust from the y-pipe to the back of the bike. Will probably cost all of 50 bucks and will be very loud.

I got the Erion because they're not too loud (and look good, fit well, perform well, and BLACK) so if you want load, try something else...

I say if noise is your concern, have pipes made that bend back around and point to the sides of your head... that should be loud enough.

If you want obnoxious, raucous noise why don't you just perform a bafflectomy? It's free so you won't have to feel the regret you would after you realize that you're unhappy with being yet another biker irritating innocent bystanders with your death machine.

My Yosh is louder than stock, but it's nice and mellow so I don't pi$$ off my neighbors. Noise levels are about courtesy. Loud pipes don't save diddly-squat (except $$$ because good pipes are usually less raucous).

I'm after the nice mellow slip ons that will open up in the country side but let me cruise downtown without attracting undue attention while setting off car alarms. Are Sato's like this or do they sound like a band saw.

To answer this guys question. The D&D's will be the loudest.

Don't let anyone bully you into getting what they want. Get what you want!

1. Yes. D&D will probably be the loudest because they sound like crap.

2. Trying to rescue his neighbors from constant irritation is not bullying. Loud pipes might sound fun now, but most people are going to be disappointed in the long run if they purchase an inferior product. If you're cross-shopping a Kia Rio against a Honda Civic, I can promise you that you'd rather go with the Civic in the first place. Buying a better quality product means never having to look back and wish you had made a different decision. This of course assumes that louder pipes are of lower quality, but that's a generalization I am comfortable making.

You are not going to find the Erion's. Trust me I have looked everywhere. I have to agree with some of the posts on here. Spend the money now or you will regret it later. I like the look of the Erion's with the black alumninum. The only ones that I cand find close to that look is the Microns. Pricey? Yes, but again I think you get what you pay for.

Dave,i'm completly with sss on this.I have d&d, i've had them for maybe 2 years now and yes i did get them more for safty then anything else.I got them because their loud and obnoxious in a not so bad way.When i say safety,i mean they make people in cages think twice before changing lanes or pulling out from a side street when they hear a bike somwhere,i've noticed this difference from day one. Also i drive a tractor trailer with a refrigeration unit on the trailer and even with that running,i can hear loud pipes before i see the bike, so yes they do save lives as far as i'm concerned, like sss said, do what your pocket will allow and don't be pressured into anything you don't want,it's your bike and your own taste. good luck

And since the time you bought them thinking that it makes a difference and even made yourself think people notice... you've learned it's not true right?

People in front of you don't hear your exhaust that is being pooped out behind you. Turn on your highbeams during the day.

I have D&D. They were on the bike when I bought it. Pretty loud but haven't compared their sound to other 919 pipes. Good fit and finish but for the dough, I'd get jap pipes. I never really thought about the loud = safe issue but a drivers ability to hear me has kept them from drifting into my lane more than once. I'd never buy pipes just for the sound, I don't care how sweet. If sound was important I'd have bought a Duc.

rags,i still believe its true.both of those authors are entitled to their views as am i,and yes they make some interesting points. first if your not gonna wear the gear,don't ride, it only takes a min to do a pretrip on a bike,so do it,always ride with your headlight and tail light on and always watch out for everyone else because there not watching out for you. as far as your presence is concerned,saying that relying on your loud pipes soley to protect yourself is stupid,i agree with that. if one single car stops, coming out of a blind driveway or street for just one extra second to check because he hears a bike or a siren,then that could be a life saved and in my eyes,the d$ds just paid for themselves.

Okay, this is driving me nuts. You're not very likely to hear a bike coming towards you PERIOD. The exhaust is pointed in the opposite direction of the bike's travel, so guess where the sound goes! I can prove this: when I'm in my car, my brother's bafflectomied pipe (which is loud as all hell) isn't audible until he's about 15 feet away. If you think that's enough time to react in a situation where an accident could occur, you're dead wrong.

I can understand what all you loud-pipe proponents are saying, I just disagree. The number of people that get annoyed as you pass by is far greater than the number who will notice you and fail to hit you simply because of your pipe. If you want a louder pipe, ANYTHING is louder than stock. Just, for the love of god, buy a pipe that doesn't give the rest of us a bad name. You're going to have a hell of a hard time convincing me that the extra couple decibels a crap pipe puts out will be more likely to save your hide than quality pieces like the Satos.

Fact: Loud Pipes Risk Rights

Opinion: Overly loud pipes are for dudes trying to...oh how do I say it...overcompensate.

Obsession is a word the lazy use to define the dedicated.
