Aging Cafe` Racer
You're best bet is going to be to leave it stock and use the money for tires, brake pads and bright riding gear, those are the things that'll save your bacon, not making a lot of noise.
True, my buddy rides a stock XB9 and it sounds and runs great. My Dyna is also stock with 88dba 49 state legal Harley Accessory slash cuts, Sounds and runs great. Why waste money screwing up a good running bike?Agreed. I found that looking out for yourself and being seen is far more important than a loud muffler. I have tested a Buell Firebolt. I found the exhaust to be louder than my R6 In my opinion it is sound quality that is important over loudness. A stock Buell, even a stock Harley, has great sound quality.
