RPW Thor exhaust and loudness levels compared to stock
Just in case this is helpful for anyone curious.
I measured the SPL of my bike at idle before and after installation of the RPW Thor pipes. The absolute numbers are not as meaningful as the relative, since I measured in a garage so there are sound reflections etc. I did measure in the exact same position before and after and with the same device.
Stock 2011 exhaust: 94dB
RPW Thor exhaust: 104dB
FYI, 10 dB is a LOT. Remember, 3 dB is technically twice the power, so 10 is more than noticeable.
More importantly though is that the idle seems quiet compared to a little throttle blip. It makes people jump. It sounds good though, but I'm still planning on building a baffle to quiet it down some.
Hope this is informative to someone.
