Quieting the uncorked pig?

So with just a small grain of sand in the vag and maybe it's just time to quit wearing the skirt and just man up and ride ~ is there anyway to mellow the exhaust pulses of an uncorked XRL?

I do some long jaunts on the super slab and notice that the exhaust isn't necessarily loud, but the boom boom exhaust pulses of a single become tiresome.

So I could just put the stock muffler back on:blah: but has anyone come with a more creative solution? Currently I have a WBE2 with the spark arrestor in, but has anyone tried welding on a resonance chamber on onto the headers like they do the motocross bikes? What about adding a second muffler on the left side where the battery box use to be?

What says the TT brain trust?

:excuseme::bonk:

I, and a lot of others here, like the FMF Q pipes. There's a thread here on them for the R, but they make 'em for the L, too.

Only a pencil d$#@ would ride with earplugs and loud exhaust. I see many Harley riders go thru town with plugs in. Why not just wear a sign that says "I can't please a woman so I run loud exhaust".

My DR650 pig has whisper quiet exhaust and very smooooooth at 80mph for a single cylinder....

I do have ear plugs, and the FMF pipe is good to know, but I was looking for something waaaay more complicated:lol: With a strong case of tinkeritus I'm thinking of either trying a resonance chamber on the headers, or a second muffler where the battery box used to be. I was curious if this had been tried before, but I'll keep you all posted with whatever monstrosity I come up with.

:excuseme:

A turbo would make it a lot quieter.

This turbo you speak of...

Has anyone successfully turboed an XRL? I've seen a few threads started on the subject but I've yet to see one finished with good results.

Just looking for a comparison guys, are you all soft or are the pipes you are using way louder then a stock XR650R pipe with the baffle removed?

Yes.

Yes.

And you probably don't spend 400mi. at a time on the highway:p.
