Quieter Exhaust
« on: 11 October, 2019, 05:33:55 PM »
Hi all,
First post. So hope this is the correct way of doing this.
I have a 2009 1050 se with a Beowulf exhaust. It has a great sound ( loads of bangs and pops). My issue is I do about 3hrs/day riding round trip at motorway speeds during the week and personally the noise level can get a little tiring. Im looking for a slightly quieter smoother exhaust note. With a budget of up to 500 ish. I still plan on putting the Beowulf back on for the weekend sprints around the lake. What would the general consensus on this be.

Many thanks in advance
Kev

I fitted a second hand Beowulf on my 955 Tiger and found it quite tiring so I contacted Beowulf and they sold me a longer baffle which quietened it down just enough.

They are a great company to deal with so maybe get a picture of the baffle you have in now and give them a call.

Cheers Orange99.
That sounds like a plan. No harm in getting solution and testing it for a while. Cheaper than a new exhaust also. Whats the rough price that baffle ( if you can remember)?
Thanks again.

Mine was 26 posted - I guess it depends on what model you have but give them a call

Got the larger baffle. Emailed them with no reply so rang them ( brilliant to deal with) Baffle Works a treat. Find myself taking it out more than not but good to have the choice. Great suggestion cheers again.

Hello Kev   :405:

IMO,, start with ear plugs. 
If you have the quietest exhaust in the world. Drive 3 hours at decent highway speed you will still have hearing issues.  Wind noise isn't good at road speed. 

Start there, think you will find the exhaust isn't your biggest issue.   

I've got an open exhaust, wind noise is a bigger issue then the exhaust.   OR if you fix the exhaust, you will find the wind noise is your NEW problem.  LMAO.

Yes, I did the very same thing with my MKI Tiger. I hated the super quiet sewing machine sound, but after a couple of months with a Micron Beta on her, I had to use earplugs.

Another option is that you swap between the OEM, of which there are plenty of spare ones around, and your Beowulf as and when.

Good luck & look forward to viewing the photos  :031:

Thanks for the welcome guys. 👍
Tried to slip in under the radar. 🤣

I find the ear plugs are a must. Tried it for a while without them. But wind noise and the exhaust ( when I give it the beans) convinced me otherwise. 
I find the quieter baffle great on the long commute but the wind noise is still above the safety of 85db especially using the arai x4 helmet.  Great helmet but noisy
