Thanks everyone for all your responses. I guess I'll just have to keep looking around. It's hard to tell exactly what something sound like on YouTube but from what I hear, so far I am liking the NH Toga silencers. I like the sound and that it's not too loud. The Emgo's are intriguing for the price though.

I think I'll have to wiat until next spring to get some. My Fiat 850 needs some attention this fall.

Cheers.

Definitely. He's my husband's daily driver. Always something to keep him busy. Fortunately, this time it's routine maintenance. Shocks, brakes, tires and the like.

BTW, it's always for sale if you're feeling nostalgic.

Your best bet is to find someone who is blissfully unaware of their proclivities.....

Everyone's going to have a personal preference on exhaust. I would recommend consulting with Mike with Bellacorse, as he sells a variety from mild to wild and will include the correct jets along with your application.

On the TOR's, they are louder than stock, but not much, so if you're looking for a deep, rumble - look elsewhere. I had them for a couple years and got bored with them quick. They also didn't breathe as well as other options.

Pipes

I put D&D's on my 2008 Bonnie which I just traded in for a 2012 America...I took the stock pipes off the America and had ths short Triumph slash cuts put on with the remap...I'll probably put on tnew British Customs cocktail shakers or Epco's in the spring...gettin back to the Bonnie...the D&D's were LOUD..Iloved them...saved my butt a few times..I did the British Customs air box removal kit ..rejetted to 140 42's..2and a half turns out and the bike ran like a champ...I'm gonna miss my Bonnie but needed a more comfortable cruiser for longer trips. Once u take the air box out it's easy to swivel the carbs and rejet..the instructions from BC were excellent.

Just to throw in on this. I put BC Predators on my 2009 Bonnie. Love em and I think they sound great. If it's just a sound you're looking for keep checking youtube. Better to hear them in person if possible though.

The 03 I just bought had Hydes on it and the jetting, K&N filter swap, front sprocket change and a couple of other cosmetic deals done. The Hyde Togas are sweet. You get a nice mellow tone on the bike without causing the neighbors to get all snippy. They look like the old 60's pipes. To give you an idea of the sound level, my son was in the yard (I live in the country, so no background noise)and when I was outrunning a rain shower coming home, he said he didn't hear me until I down shifted at the 90 degree turn approx 1/4 mile from home. By the way, anyone know where I can get a left side used Toga? The one on my bike has a rash from the previous owner.

The TORs are a good choice. On a scale of 1 to 10 here is the relative loudness with 1 being the quietest and 10 the loudest. The Tors give a nice growl when you are cruising through neighborhoods and past police...but give a nice roar when you open up the throttle

Stock - 1
TOR - 3
Staintune - 4
TBike - 6
Hyde - 7
Shark - 7
EPCO - 7.5
Sprint/BC Teardrop/Emgo - 8.5
D&D - 10
Raask - 10
BUB - 10

There is a good article on upgrades here....

Maybe The Remus slip-ons are the thing for you. Does anybody have experience with them?
