I agree with GA426, they should quiet those SOB's down so fans can enjoy the racing. That would at least partially solve both problems.


I love the sound of the 450's... maybe I have a hearing problem, because they don't keep me from enjoying a race.

The niose don't bother me either how many peaple jam the stadiums to see the monster trucks and tracter pulls? those things are friggin loud.And what about rock concerts? What is the issue here? peaple that go to these events know it is going to be loud! Who is complaining? I can can see a sound issue outdoors.But why the hell they are they sound checking indoors? And F..in around with displacment wiill not change a thing in the pecking order of the current pros. Sure you can argue that us mortals might have better lap times on a 250f or a 250 2 stroke but will still have that option anyway? And you cannot use the old 250 vs 500 analogy I 'll asure you my 06yz450 is waaay easy to ride than my 85cr500!

They need to make these bikes quieter..period end of freaking story. To many local tracks have closed down due to the noise of the four strokes.

I agree with you bro But in the circuss arena it should be a liittle more looser.I am a victom of the 4 stroke noise myself. I have 30 acres of land with natural rolling hills that I built a dandy track on with a d4 cat . Me and my friends enjoyed many years of riding on it .till we all got 4 strokes one year and it was all over. The township past a noise bylaw in just weeks now I can get a fine if iI ride on my own land! this is why I moved to the sticks to begin with ! and my closest neibors are 2000 yards away! and they are not even human! The sound of the 4 str travels Its the deep base of the sound not the db If you made these things 80 db the complaint would be the same and the bike would loose to much power face it we are screwed. Hey I love the feel of the 450 But I could have lived happier ever after on a yz250 the manufacturers did not think this threw.Anyway my point was at a racing event.the db rules should be more lax lGo to a speedway raceing that has been around for ...well a very long time and dirt track that is loud do you see a fat guy holding a micraphone to ther tailpipes?

I sent a letter to the AMA asking them where the 350cc number came from and also that what 20 guys ride in a supercross event shouldn't affect what the rest of us ride for fun. Cut down the db levels first! I also sent the big 4 an e-mail stating that I wouldn't buy a 350cc 4 stroke if they made one...

my 2 cents

Exactly. I love the sound of them too. But I love being able to ride them even more.
