i was wondering what the loudest pipe i can get for my bike is

i would like it to add some power too...is there a list anywhere for db ratings and hp increase?

i know it varies, but im sure some are louder than others, and some add more hp than others

right now im thinkin about gettin a carbon M4 or even a Holeshot

i also want to make the whole exhaust pipe black...what kind of coating would have to be applied to the pipe, or is there actually an aftermarket pipe that is black...i haven't found one yet

The "Loudest" from my past experiences have always been D&D pipes, dunno why but they are just, IMO, obnoxiously loud compared to any other pipes for any other bikes. The Six-fitty isn't gonna sound like a Big-Displacement bike if that's what yer after though....

holeshots are good.

this subject comes up at least once a week - try doing a search or just reading through a few pages of threads. please, do some research before simply asking a common question.

Go to the track and take a look at what the bikes are running. I see more M4 pipes out there than anything else. Seems to me that m4 makes more power across the board, and is tried and true by the racers out there.

The Holeshot is a bit louder, but I think the M4 looks better and makes more power.

slipons don't really make more power. you need a full system to get anything noticable.

my V&H is loud, I'd compare it to almost anything except maybe a straightpiped hardley is a little louder, but I have 100,000 miles on the exaust without any repacking

Just so we're all on the same page here, I believe he wanted "Loudest". In my personaly opinion, yes M4 makes a much better slip-on/complete exhaust for SV's than anyone currently. They just aren't "Loud" though. ???

Devil makes a loud exhaust. So does Holeshot. And D&D, of course.

Given the choice of the three, I'd still go with Dual Renegades. ;D

Howdy, I'm new here. I just crashed my 1997 Green mint-cond TL1000S into a red light runner yesterday and now my most favourite of all bikes is no more. I doubt I'll find another the same, so maybe I'll end up with an SV1000. Anyway, I had a full race Yosh RS-3 system on the TL and I absolutely loved the sound and character of the bike with that exhaust. But a friend of mine has a Honda VTX1800 with unbelievably loud pipes and when I went riding with him if he was within a mile his flatulent elephant sound would drown out my TL's exhaust, (and his bike was loud too), which I found annoying enough to understand why a TL or SV owner would seek the loudest exhaust. But louder doesn't necessarily mean sweeter sounding, so that's why I'm searching the forums. But what I'm finding is everybody who's ever heard one system thinks it's the best, and nobody seems to have been able to do side-by-side comparisons.

Dunno Fred. I just put an M4 on my 650, and it is plenty loud. I ran it for a day with no pipe at all, and I swear that it didn't quiet it down all that much when I put the can on. Seriously, it's LOUD.

I'd also like to find out howe to black out the pipes, as I want everything on my bike either red or flat black. I thought of header tape, but someone mentioned that it may be detrimental to the bike. Consider this a bump I suppose, if anyone has info on this please holler.

For flat black, go for Duplicolor High Temperture engine enamel with ceramic in "Low Gloss Black," the color is nearly identical to the satin black of 2nd gen frames. Check it:

packing has been gone for well over 50,000 miles, I think about 15,000 miles ago, I heard it spit the rusted burnt & broken baffle out to.. I think it's just a hollow echo chamber now
