Are they doing microphone Db testing or just guessing?
Wouldn't matter, they can defect on suspicion of a fault.
Filth told me once (as I was getting defected) that they can defect you rolling out of a bike shop on a brand new stock standard bike if they wanted too.
Lucky I got that on tape.
I think you've interpreted that incorrectly. After ADRs were enacted, you have a limit of 94 db. If oem exhaust is less than the limit, you can only add a small amount of additional noise.
Maybe but that's the argument I'd be having a crack with, my Breakout is definitely stickered at 95db so it's already factory "illegal" if 94db is the top.
In reality if you stay away from the known hot spots in your area (i.e. Mt Glorious in Brisbane on weekends) and don't ride around everywhere like an arsehole, wear "colours" or "Sons of Anarchy" T-shirts (in some states), you probably don't have to worry too much about getting hassled by cops.
Hi, why would a bike not have a sticker on the swing arm? I have seen a few bike lately that don’t have them and the are Aus HD’s. I have also seen pipes with it engraved on the pipe but no sicker.... swap pipes you are stuffed. Or maybe it is under the seat???
My sticker cam off because I power washed the mud from the rear wheel. I had to order one from the dealer (HD) and it took weeks to arrive - can't remember what it cost but I remember thinking it was a fucking idiotic that I need a stupid sticker. YMMV
It's coming in, says so in the stuff I mentioned, look for that ADR 83/00 in your state stuff, it's federal, it's in QLD now, they don't make it easy
I downloaded an app for my phone/tablet.......there are plenty of free ones.
