Termi\'s

Put my Termi's on the bike (ST2) at the weekend, after a quick run I suspect they may be a little to loud for comfort .....
I heard/read somewhere you can buy inserts to quiet them down a bit, is this true and has anybody used them ??
Cheers

Its a bit subjective I suppose. We all know the standard pipes on bikes these days makes them sound like "sowing machines" as my Buell riding mate once said. Some pipes seem to make a bike sound great without being offensive or giving you a headache after riding and others are just toooo loud. I belive that loud(er) pipes are safer for bikers because I have had children run out infront of me on my home estate not only because they didn't see me (as children often don't) but also they didn't HEAR me.
Anyway I'll get some DB reducers and see how it goes !
Cheers

It hurts my ears to ride my bike without earplugs. That not wind noise, its just exhaust noise. Funny enough it doesnt bother Lynn when she's on the back and the bike isnt excessivly noisy to passers by either. However i cant ride the monster with my ear plugs in becasue i cant hear the engine! Makes it interesting when i'm swapping bikes though. I've had several hang on moments on the ST!!

Paul, its probably induction noise rather than exhaust noise.

My ST sounds much louder than the 998 when riding it, but to those not on the bike it is the other way around. Something to do with the long induction tubes on the 998 compared to no top on the air filter for the ST

I did buy some inserts but thought they looked pants, so have not fitted them. I too wear ear plugs all the time.

Apparently its louder at riders end rather than passenger end for decibels as you are also getting engine noise to. Might be talkin Bol**x tho@

It might be induction noise but i'm still running the standard airbox lid with the snorkels in (however you spell it!!). I do have sensitive hearing as a rule and i'm very protective of it. Like you say John, its not an issue for me as i wear ear plugs all the time.
