I have looked for a thread covering this and have not come up with anything.

I am considering a Zard exhaust for my new S2R1000 (between the Zard and the full Termi setup). However, I am concerned (unlike some I on the DML I am sure) about the sound level of the exhaust (rated at 102db). It *may* be OK at that level, but I suspect that on longer rides I will like to have it quieter as would my neighbours (all the time). Unfortunately the Zard does not come with removable db killers. I have corresponded with Anthony at Loudbike and apparently Zard also makes an 80 db version of the exhaust which he can get - but this quieter exhaust version is achieved without removable db killers again. So I face a decision of 80 db (definitely too quite) or 102 db (probably too loud) -when I would rather have the option of 80 OR 102 db - or IDEALLY somewhere around 90 db!

This thread is not to debate the sound level of the exhaust - but to see if anyone out there with Zard exhaust has fitted aftermarket (or custom fabricated) db killers to their cans.

Thanks in advance...

Yeah, based on the thread that Wanwo provided a link to it sounds like 89 db is the rating...

Desmo: Where did you get your Zards from? Did you specifically as for the 89 db version?

PeteB: Same question, did you ask for the 89 db version, or are those just what you happened to be shipped?

Trying to figure out where to order from that might actually have them in stock for the S2r1000.

Tx.
