Do you consider the D3 tailtidy a proper tail tidy? or do you want that triangular piece of plastic below the reflector removed?

I just wanted it to be as far back as possible, but since I decided against a 3-1 system the D3 standard will do, which comes with the reflector.

I'd like to get a slip-on for my street next season. I'm looking to shed some weight, but I don't want anything too loud. I live in Calgary, which has decided to implement a noise bylaw on vehicles, using a 'noise snare'. Basically it's a photo radar, but it measures your noise level, instead of speed, and takes a picture of your plate, then sends you a $200 ticket in the mail. The noise threshold is only 96dB, which I think most vehicles could break, depending what they are revving at. I guess what I'm getting at is, which slip-on would give me the best performance and weight savings, while not being much louder than stock. I was looking at the Arrow, or SC project, but open to other options.

Holy old thread Canadaman

Even uncorked slip-ons barely make a blip on the dyno and any that are baffled enough to pass noise regs will do nothing but look better and be lighter so any that are EU on road legal with their baffles in and are stamped as such should give you no concern with the local constabulary.

I noticed it was really old, but I'm super bored at work right now and was scrolling through some old stuff.

Thanks. Ya, I'm more looking for weight savings than any sort of performance gains. Performance would just be gravy, but not at all looking for that. EU has similar noise regulations to my now very restricted city? They are really trying to crack down on the Harley straight pipe crew, that enjoy making lots of noise for no reason.

Gotta love the 'noise bylaws' against vehicles while all day long in surburbia I hear chain-saws, pressure washers, leaf blowers and edgers, power saws, snow-throwers, ride-on lawnmowers that sound like an airplane taking off, and the neighbor's wind-chimes that will drive you insane while you are trying to go asleep on a hot summer's night. But hearing a loud motorcycle for 20 sec requires noise laws lol. And what Orangeman said. - Wayne

It gets so damn loud out here with the rider lawn mower brigade you can not have your windows open most Saturday and Sunday afternoons!

I've got one guy we call The Rancher because he feels the need to ride a quad (with a trailer no less) to haul crap to the back forty (around back of his house). He's on a half-acre lot in a subdivision...
