Noise limit at the 'Ring
 
I've been told I need to 95db at 2/3rds revs or less to survive a sound check at the 'Ring and that "seems" less than my 1098s with Termis produces. Any idea what the dB level of my bike might be (aside from popping along to race meeting and getting is measured)? TIA

been a few times and advice would be take DB killers with you in case you get a pull, they dont test everyone; its by exception (unless its changed since last May), seems enough normally, dont strangle it in the car par; just tick over with very little throttle when pulling away, have a closed clutch cover; that noise alone attracts attention!!

And if like Kim last year you ignore that, tick over next to the most blinged up bike there; they assume its that one and pull it leaving you to bang off into the distance :lol:

It was 2009 Paul, can't think who you are talking about, but may be this guy below off to try and get his money back for the lap he didn't do :lol:

Thanks guys. I've attached a piccy of the exhaust without the killer and of the db killers for anyone interested. I assume these are the right db killers for my termis?

They look right Martin, but I'd check before you go, as they can be a bit of a pig to get in and out (take some pliers with you ;) )
