Question The stupid question of the week

Hello everyone...
Here I go...Is there any way of increasing the loudness of the original muflers such as taking an element from the silencers or something like that? If the answer is "yes"...how?
I put on my brutale the Arrows midpipe and muflers and they sound amazing...but the look of the originals is just perfect, so I want to have the Arrows sound with the original look
Hope someone can help me...Thaks and MV'ssssssss

I don't think it's a stupid question Pedro, but I'll leave it to the Brutale boys to answer.

Hmmm..... tricky question....

Why don't you just record the sound of the arrows to a tape and play it on a megaphone attached to the bike everytime you go for a ride? That way you could have the best of both worlds.

























































Sorry, but i don't know the answer to your question

There are some ideas on the thread I started about the same time regarding the exhaust and noise:

Looks like a new midpipe is the way to go....i might give it a try.

I put the Arrows system on. It's only a little louder. She still sounds like an out board motor until you get to 1/2 throttle, then the sound is much improved.

Only a little bit louder...? Have you tried to hear it without your helmet on? ...no, seriusly now, do you have the DB killers install on the mufflers? Have you got the cat bypass as well?

I say so, cause they sound much louder on mine...don't know what you mean by "loud".

Anyway...I think I'm taking the original mufflers to an exhaust specialist here on the island an see if he can do a job on them...I'll keep you guys inform...

I think what he's trying to say is the sounds increase from stock ipes with mid-pipe to Arrows with mid-pipe is minimal. Honestly, my bike is fairly loud with stock mufflers and a midpipe. Everybody wants to know what exhaust it is(non MV owners), and when I tell them stock, they're like "damn, even Ducs aren't that loud stock..."

Mid-pipe makes hte bike sound like you put on a slip-on...so I can only imagine what a full exhaust does, but apparently, it's not that different.

I do however know, that my buddy on here with RG3's and mid-pipe on his 02 F4, has a deep rumble, but is nowhere NEAR loud as my bike. Both bikes sound DAMN SEXY though....

And the outboard motor....way to put a finger on what the bike sounds like! I couldn't quite figure it out, but I knew the sound was familiar!!!!

Check my album arrows & mid pipe. The pipes came with a sticker warning that they are for off road only...not restricted, free flowing

My point of reference for excellent deep & rich sound comes from racing Italian twins, nothing like a Duck on the pipe!

If your wanting a major improvement to the sound I dont think its out there.

Helmet on arrow's make very little difference, until over 1/2 throttle by then wind noise and the fact that the bike is moving and the sound is behind you could prove much increased but you cant truly here it.

Helmet off, no interest...fell off bikes too many times always put my hat on. That being said if your not riding but spectating (again no interest) could be it sounds much improved wizzing past an over 100mph.

Point is on the bike and riding not much difference...possibly 20% increase.

Careful with cutting up the pipes, lots of engineering goes into air flow...sucking/forcing it in and pushing / pulling it out of an engine. You will surely want to spend some tuning time changing the AFR (air Fuel Ratio) in the injectors to compensate for the changes you make.

If you end up with a mess I'll sell you my stock slip ons!

Best wishes
