The diesel folks here have added a collector filled with water to capture the particles. Less smoke, still smells kinda sweet/rank.

95db. Cops can carry decibel meters to check, but I have yet to hear of anyone ever being pulled over for loud pipes.

I'm switching my d&d to a 2inch rb pipe with no baffle this winter. California's most wanted I guess. 👍

Damn, I just ordered some slipons from Fuel Moto for my M8. Geez.
I know the M8s are not loud motors, especially at cruise, but I wonder if they could still fine you for aftermarket exhaust.

The modified exhaust laws are nothing new. I used to get pulled over on my rd400 in the eighties for modified exhaust. The only change in the law is you can't get it signed off as a fix it ticket..... cops are too busy to pull over for this stuff nowadays....... Now… if you get pulled for speeding or something.....they may tack it on.

Many cops are riders too and they don't want to sting a brother.
