D&D 2/2 Idle

I filmed this to show that the idle on a D&D is quite tame and the pipes are not as loud as everyone thinks until 4k rpm. http://smg.beta.photobucket.com/user...a/116.mp4.html

Honestly the neighbors honda 600 cruiser is louder at idle then the D&D's, and every harley on the planet is louder. But i guess its all relative.

I'm always amused by what most members here think is loud. This is what I want on my bike, and will probably end up getting. I don't really care what my neighbors think just like my neighbor doesn't care about his huge bonfires that could potentially set my woods on fire. My other bikes had pipes that make these sound like stock pipes......now those were loud.........and probably teetering on obnoxious.........yeah definitely obnoxious.
Still I love the sound of nicely tuned pipes even if they are louder than what my neighbors would approve of.

I def agree w/ ya, jeiser. I put a set of these in faux-ti on the Bonne, and I tell ya...these pipes ROCK! Even on a stock 865 engine with stock sprockets, these pipes Rock! And the sound is fantastic, in my opinion. For this is how the Bonne was meant to sound...deep, throaty, and well tuned!

At 4K, they will piss off some of the neighbors, I suppose, but that's a topic for them and their therapist.

07 Bonne Black with ARK, AI removed, K&N Pods, Nology Coil and wires, D&D full exhaust, 135 mains/42 pilots, 1 shim @ sea level. Biltwell trackers, Hagon 2810's & progressive fork springs. all blacked out.
