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
I downloaded an app for my phone/tablet.......there are plenty of free ones.
Been testing a few of those free apps for testing my exhaust.
Calibrated them as advised then checked the bikes note.
With a set of Freedom 4" Racing pipes with no quiet baffle inserted the results were.
Idle 1000 rpm 86 Db.
2500 rpm 86 Db.
4000 rpm 86 Db.
One of my farts coz I couldn't resist testing it 82 Db. LOL
the apps said that they go to 120 Db. but that maybe wishful thinking as well.
I tried three different types and all gave the same result.
There was a mention about the capabilities of the built in microphone on the phone. That may have some bearing on the levels as well.
Jaycar sell one for $50 with is rated from 40 to 130 Db.
