Quiet, sweet, quiet!

I just bought a set of oem mufflers from Phil.
Installed and cleaned everything up today and boy is that quiet so nice.
For the last about 25,000 miles I had to listen to the moan of the re-worked oems and had got my fill of noise.
:001_smile::001_smile::001_smile: Thanks Phil.

If you want a small step up in noise go with the Staintunes. With the inserts that come with the mufflers they are DOT approved on noise! I keep them out for a little extra sound, but I'm with you. Loud pipes have become more annoying than anything for me.

I'm with you also: the first thing I did when I returned home from my ride to Utah and back this summer was to take off the Satos and return to stock.

It was good going from stock to Sato a couple of years ago, but it was ten times better than that returning to stock now.

I had noisey pipes on my RC51 and always regretted it, one of the reasons I bought the niner was because I didn't need to change anything except the mirrors!

I have contemplated going back to stock. Quite is nice - my ears like the quite, but my extreme manliness wants to be announced with loud pipes (or pipe in my case)!

My previous bike was an SV650 with a shorty can. Man, that thing was loud as heck when you opened it up. A guy took it on a test ride when I was selling it, and I heard him open up the throttle two blocks away. Unbelievably loud. Almost Harley-like.

When I test drove my 9er with stock exhaust, I couldn't believe the quiet, even when I cracked open the throttle. To me, it seemed like an amusement park ride -- just "whooosh," a rush of speed with not a big racket accompanying it. I'm really digging the quiet ride, too.

My bike had Staintunes, they sounded OK with the insert in and better with it out, but still not loud. However, I wouldn't recommend them, because mine would hold a ton of moisture, to the point of dripping it out between the cans and Y-pipe. It was significantly less with the inserts removed, though.

+1! Of course if the 919 was my only bike I might feel differently, but since it's my hooligan bike I love the loud Satos.

I went from stock to Jardines then after all the good comments here about the Satos I went to those. Got a set of Gen 1's off eBay. Still have them on & love them. If I ever get tired of them I can switch back to the Jardines or stock.

i still have the stock ones on the vfr... and i must say after having the satos on the 919 it is nice to have the peace and quiet and the beautiful music of that v4 when it hits ~8000rpm.... ahhhhhhhhhhh sweet music..

i should have money left over after the repairs are done and i am toying with putting a pc3/5 on and maybe 2bros or whatever i can find cheap on ebay....

but then again i may just leave it as-is.....

Brian, that V-4 will sound super sweet with an aftermarket exhaust. Better than a 919 with Sato's. My 919 with sato's sounded really good, but that burbling V-4 in my old intercpetor sounds awesome with its carbon fiber 2bros can
