Great point Frankie ... I just edited it to remove the link to his channel.

I didn't read all this but I have two things to add to this soon to be 50 page post.

1. MORON

2. I rode in the mountains last year for the first time. I was in three different locations and there are all sorts of people in the towns and on the access trails. "Save it for the mountains" is likely pissing people off as well. Just less of them to piss off in those areas.

Yes, I belive you are correct about Wisconsin law and some other states have the factory exhaust law. Canada too.

It is the factory exhaust law I have issues with. If some company came out with a quiter than OEM and lighter and/or lower cost than OEM exhaust. Someplaces will ticket you, just because it is not OEM. That is my issue. How pissed off would you be if you got a ticket for having quiter than stock exhaust? That is asinine.

Well, maybe in an avalanche?
finally, someone brought up a gun comparison.

yeah, in Canada. in the US (to my knowledge) you can put on anything as long as it is compliant to noise laws.

Sound test within the accuracy required by the law would be expensive and require you bring your sled some place to test. There is zero validity in any mobile DNR test.

Probably true, but it doesn't give the government right to force you to buy OEM.

Get a trailer, build it to the "correct" acoustics in the interior. Bring the sled in. Run the test, pull it out. That way, the test should be the same everywhere. You can even make the trailer as a two-fer and make it usable as a hauling trailer for the DNR.

It is mobile, it is consistent and it hauls the DNR machines.

which are being eroded by selfish idiots making some mad enough to do something about them being selfish idiots. we have a lot of the same laws here, which are now getting enforced, which were pretty much ignored for years. your laws are either finally getting enforced or new ones being made to deal with them.

i come from those bc mountains, they keep making louder and louder cans, they're going to start having the same shit about noise there. one reason will be safety, and the other will be noise around the few towns that are by the places where these guys go. BC loves tourism, but is very protective of it's forests and wildlife, as well as idiots who go where they shouldn't in winter. there were a couple of rescues last year that thankfully ended well, but the rockies are not safe or well travelled in any season with a lot of places to never be found again.

there is nothing wrong with wanting to improve your sled, just making it louder cause that's all you care about? that's just stupid.

In NY they do, I was pulled over 2 yrs ago for loud exhaust, I wasnt getting on it and I was actually trying to be quiet because I was in a residential area. I asked the cop why they didnt have to use a decibel meter and his response was that "in NY anything other than factory exhaust is illegal even if its quieter than factory" and that " the police chief has a hard on for loud bikes". so I got the ticket, went to court, spoke to the DA, and asked him about the decibel meter, he said "yeah you would think thats how it should be" and dismissed the ticket.

This is Maineís law, itís bullshit nothing but revenue. They do it because they know that people from away wonít fight it theyíll just pay it and be done. Rarely does anyone one fight these summonses, and Maine donít enforce the decibel thing donít even test the level, if it donít sound stock theyíre writing you up regardless. However Iíll be damned if something happens to my suitcase muffler I sure as hell ainít paying $620 to replace it with an OEM one. Itís against federal law for states to pass laws preventing us from running aftermarket products.
