Anyone using the WB E Series Hawkins Super Quite?

I made three runs up to Hollister hills this morning. I have brought my R4 down from a respectable 105.7 to 101.8.

I have made another set of mods hoping it will drop down past 101. If it makes it I will post on how I did it.

If not I was looking at replacements.

Out side of the FMF Q Pipe with the power bomb header or the WB E series Hawkins

Aint too much to pick from.

This Sound Chk crap is just that crap. I got the model number of the meter they are using I am questioning how they test and if they are testing as per the Manufacturing steps.

They shove the end of the meter right into the exhaust, and have this little gismo tat they attach to your tank or what ever and when the antenna starts doing circle your at 4500 rpm

BULL ***p I say

All these freaking HD and WannB HD _Indians. I can here the bikes at my house 10 miles away.

Dang politicions :)

Is Hollister Hills enforcing sound checks now to get through the gate? I moved south down to SD a while back, but only remember them doing it as courtesy.

looks like its going to be the aftermarket's responsibility to actually design and build a pipe that is quiet but also increases horsepower. imagine , they'll have to actually spend some money on r&d instead of bending tubing and slapping on a hollow aluminum can !!

I think I have the Hawkins, but I am not totally sure. I set out to buy one, but when we looked in the distributer catalogue there was not one listed as "Hawkins". There was one listed as E-Series - Quiet Series along with the others (Pro-Meg, S-Bend...). So I got the "Quiet Series". It has the long E-Series body, diffusor disks, spark arrestor, and a chamber inside the body (as opposed to a straight core). I also have a FMF Power Bomb SX head pipe. I have never been tested, but people have told me that my bike is noticably "less louder" than others.

Is Hollister enforcing red sticker? If not I will try to get down there for a ride and get mine tested.
