CRF250X noise questions

Recommended Posts

How loud is the CRF250X with and without the baffle in. And is it true that if you take the baffle out it has more of a popping noise.

Thanks in advance

It's pretty loud. Loud enough that I don't like riding the bike in the neighborhood uncorked. I'd say it's pretty comparable to a CRF250R, but a bit more raspy.

I think someone told me that it's 96db with it out, not positive though. I like the sound of it out, very addicting, but will probly cause noise complaints if you have neighbors. I believe it's 82 with it in, and there is maybe a tiny bit more popping, not very noticable though.

According to Dirt Bike:

"The stock machine runs very well and is a quiet 89 decibels. The closed-course-modified bike ran better but was an obnoxious 100 decibels."

I've read that opening the airbox is worth 3 dB, so removing the baffle alone may get you into the 96 - 97 dB range.

X without the baffle is than an R silencer IMO. We put an R silencer on the bike and it is loud but the sound does not echo thru the woods as bad as an uncorked X.
