after looking at a few web sites i have made a baffle of sorts .its basically a piece of pipe which goes into the muffler from the rear about 4" .1 3/8 id ,i am happy enough now with the sound .its still plenty loud enough when you get on it..sounds a bit harley ish....easy enough to remove if i go to the drags one day.

dont no if its my imagination but does the gearbox change smoother when you free the engine up,

I am looking at the Thor's as well and am concerned about the sound. I was wondering how Big Slash perform's and sounds compared to the Thor. I contacted RPW. I couldn't believe the response from RPW. They said they don't have information on my question and they recommend I read the forum's.

The Big Slash is louder, especially on decel.

If you guys think the Thor is loud... I just don't know what to say. I follow my bike on my friend's Goldwing and I can hardly hear my bike at all. From the saddle it's nice and quiet at idle/cruise/normal acceleration and only barks at full throttle. Loud? Really?

I'm doing research, I haven't heard the pipes. This thread reminds me of the story where an old man see's his doctor and says, "Doc - I'm really embarrassed about my silent gas". The doctor replies, "first thing I'm gonna check is your ears!".

The Thor pipe is too LOUD!??!!!! No way. Compared to most aftermarket pipes its quiet unless you're really hitting the upper RPMs. It is louder than the stock pipes but I can yell louder than those pipes too. BTW I have the Thor (shocked aren't you) and I like the sound. Wish it was a little louder.

I get "Man, your bike is quiet" all the time. My wife says "I didn't even hear you leave" or "I didn't hear you come in" all the time. In groups of bikes mine is always among the quietest, except for the ones with stock exhaust.

The Victory Long Drag pipes were BRUTAL if you were in the pipe wash... the SlashNess at full tilt boogie would make blood come out of your eye sockets... The Victory Shotguns were worse than either of those (painful)... but the Thor? Naaa...

HC that vid on your YouTube list on the dragon I think where you're following another bike and ripping up through the curves.. Its hard to tell. Which pipes are you running? Sounds glorious I think. I'm hoping you'll say the Thor's.

Ah dambit.. I think those are the slash 2-2 you were running.

Thors weren't too loud for me, unless I punched it.
