Peter told me system was not a Wolf, but a PowerMax. Sucks. No-wonder it was so loud. I ordered baffles from him, and packing off eBay.

Yeah, saw that. They sound very similar, but you can tell where the Wolf/Trident system is more refined. It smooths out as the revs increase. The PowerMax system sounds angry all the time. I enjoy quieter pipes.

Peter guessed that the PowerMax system was 25% louder than Trident's.

Hopefully the baffles and new packing will help some.

This is what the Trident looks like

It is much more refined (no cutting up the under tray) and makes more power with a better noise than the Powermax - I think because both PowerMax and BlackWidow went bust whilst we've been going 19 years now and we still sell the Daytona underseat, people just associate all under seat pipes with being Trident - kind of like calling all Vacuum cleaners a Hoover...

I should be flattered :)

That's a sweet piece of exhaust right there Peter!
