1290 Akrapovic Noise Test?

Postby Leeroybrown01 » Wed Sep 16, 2015 12:56 pm

Has anyone had a static noise test on a 1290 with full Akra system..?

Have a track day next week and need to know whether to baffle or not... 102 Db drive by, 105Db static.

Cheers
Lee

Mine was 105db without baffle and 102db with. Both static and measured at Cadwell.

Cheers for the info...

I'd guess at low 90's tops - you could shout louder!

My advice would be to put your baffle in and keep it there. I've seen noise testers check for a baffle and write on the noise sticker, so if you pass then take your baffle out they'll throw you out rather than give you a warning. These people can at times be quite draconian but they're looking after the interests of the circuit to keep us all happy and riding there for years to come.

I have some lathe coolant filter mesh to make a snubber up to lock wire onto the baffle inlet should things get problematic.

There's usually a rice burner or two there making a proper annoying noise, so keep your baffle in and I suspect you'll be fine.

Where are you going? Not the KTM Silverstone day by any chance?

Yes mate... KTM day.

I suppose baffle is best. Just means I have to find it!

Are you there as well?

So I finally managed to get some time on track at Phillip Island on my own bike from Singapore. If you look really closely you can see my big c&nting grin.

Wicked day!

Was brilliant fun. I'll admit that I forgot too... I had a track day on Tuesday as well so was kind out of the social media frame of mind.

My bike was the one that looks like a tarts handbag, orange and white wheels, loads of carbon fibre, 666 headlight cover, going slowly around corners!

Did the day with no baffles and no drama!

Did you join Superduke Carnage on FB?

Cheers
