I have called the supervisor and am taking it to the next step.
Excellent. Don't roll over and stick your ass in the air. It seems this guy has been getting away with this self-righteous BS for a while, and no one has called him on it. Stick with it, and keep going up the chain until you get to the right guy. Ticketing you if the bike didn't pass without riding it would be like getting a ticket from the smog guy when your car doesn't pass an emissions test. Total crap! I feel a scissorbill rant coming on ...SC

I removed everything from the sparky back, except the cap (sparky is still there) Am I too loud? If so, will the pmb thingy fix me? How will pmd effect my jetting? I finally got the bike running gooood!
It sounds like you removed the exhaust tip (4 screws holding the snorkel shaped thing?). If so, you are definately over 96 db. I have an 05 with a homemade exhaust tip, with holes and surounded with fiberglass and it just barely made the field 96db test.
Everyone says Im too loud, but it is quiet next to a Harley....

What the heck is that ranger trying to prove, the jerk? I agree he's trying to intimidate you and that you should report him.....of course, accompanied with a legitamate sound report taken on your machine.

After weeks of planning and 3+ hours od drive time my brothers and I made our trek to Stoneyford to ride for the first time. We stopped at the ranger station to get maps.....you know whats comming! He did a check on our bikes and refused to let us ride. Here are the specifics and here is where I need help.
My bike is a 2005 wr450. Motor and exhaust are stock except for the stock baffle and jetting (STOCK MUFFLER). Yamaha and every publication I have read says the wr 450 w/ baffle in is 82dba, without baffle is still well below the required 96dba. Ranger Matt said he would not let me ride and that my bike is illegle on state land. I pollitly disagreed with him and asked him to test it. He said it would not pass......BUT, if it did not pass he would write me a $175 ticket and possibly impound my bike!!! Is a stock 2005 wr450 without the baffle below 96dba????
Stock 89 dba, One tested without the plug came in at 98, another came in at 99, 2005 WR450 tested 97.2 with a Q series. These numbers came directly from the CA SVRA data list which is on the SVRA website. check it out. there are some discrepancies Like the 99 was listed as stock, but it obviously had some internals missing
