Take the can out west and enjoy the hell out of it, but don't put it on a sled that's going to be riding through neighborhoods or putting trails in jeopardy of being shut down by pissed off land owners.
oh look, it's another loud can thread!

maybe the sleds caught 'in violation of' should get impounded instead of fining the rider? couple hundred bucks doesn't mean squat to some people.

I believe in most states there is a break off point on what year (vintage) sled it is irl to the db laws. Some older sleds can be as loud as hell if they want to. So listen up kids, if you want to be loud as hell, get an old sled like most of the old guys here used to ride!!! right @BobRoss

Same as today when you have the 250 plus pound guy adding a can to save weight.
I ran PSI pipes on my Polaris triples back in the day. They had mod blasters and trail blasters I always ran the trail blasters they were in no way as loud as most of the cans available today and they sounded awesome not obnoxious.

In bold. Michigan has been talking about doing just that.

correct - if/when self patrolling clearly does not work, why not?

DNR urges snowmobilers to ditch loud exhaust pipes and cans
Contact: Ron Yesney, 906-228-6561 or John Pepin, 906-226-1352
Agency: Natural Resources

Dec. 21, 2018
The Michigan Department of Natural Resources is urging snowmobilers not to use loud exhaust pipes or cans and is reminding riders that laws against loud machine violations will be enforced strictly.
“We are continuing to get numerous complaints from the public about loud sleds,” said Ron Yesney, Upper Peninsula trails coordinator for the DNR’s Parks and Recreation Division in Marquette. “We’re looking to riders to help us curb this ongoing problem.”
Several of these complaints have led to private property owners revoking their permission to route snowmobile trails across their land.
“This diminishes our trail connectivity and decreases riding opportunities for everyone,” said John Pepin, DNR deputy public information officer. “In areas without trails, loud sleds are still a source of resident complaints.”
Under Michigan law, the muffler on a snowmobile must be in good working order and, when in constant operation, noise emission cannot exceed 88 decibels at 13.1 feet, as measured using the 2004 Society of Automotive Engineers standard J2567 for a stationary snowmobile manufactured after July 1, 1980.
The penalty for violating sound levels for snowmobiles is a civil infraction, carrying fines of over $200. Snowmobiles may be impounded.
“Enforcement efforts are necessary, but our long-term goal is to gain voluntary compliance from riders,” Yesney said. “Mountain, trail and race cans are strongly discouraged. Loud sleds give snowmobilers a bad name and give those opposed to motorized sports a voice.”
DNR conservation officers are seeing increased use of “trail can” exhausts.
“These are cans that are designed to pass a decibel test, but they are still very loud and undermine our efforts to secure trail easements and provide opportunities for snowmobilers to ride,” said Lt. Ryan Aho, a district law supervisor in Marquette. “Most trail cans will pass a decibel test if new, but may fail after a few thousand miles.”
Whether riding on or off trails, the DNR urges snowmobilers and dealers to use stock or original equipment manufacturer exhausts.
“Many thousands of hours of volunteer effort go into developing and maintaining Michigan’s snowmobile program,” Yesney said. “It only takes one sled with a loud exhaust to ruin riding opportunities for many.”
Hand in hand with complaints about loud sled violations are private property trespass complaints. The DNR suggests off-trail riders “know before they go” making sure the property they will be riding on is public.
“Riders who decide to trespass compromise the goodwill landowners have extended to the DNR, snowmobilers and trail groups and sponsors,” Yesney said. “Trespassing is another serious problem that oftentimes leads to landowner permissions being pulled and our being forced to shut down trail segments as a result.”
A committee was formed recently to develop information indicating exactly where it is legal to ride off-trail. The goal is to eventually have off-trail riding opportunities signed and mapped. Until these developments occur, it is crucial that snowmobilers ensure they are off-trail riding only on public lands.
“Whether snowmobiling on trails or off, we all need to work together for the greater good to prevent trespassing and loud sled violations from occurring,” Yesney said. “Taking loud cans or pipes off your sled and staying on the trail helps everyone.”

selfish personal actions cause the most harm, especially when it is peoples selfish actions that come from outside an area ruin things for local riders. out of town riders can just move along to a different area to ride, no skin off their ass. it's a shame really.

this thread staying here?

Still have one triple with pipes. It's an SLP RZ 700 reed motor trail version in a 86 Indy 600 SE chassis. Has the nice 3 cylinder sound but not as loud or obnoxious as some of today's cans. Also have a set of Rugland pipes for a wedge style ultra that were not craze loud.

I get the deal with cans and there's some decent cans out there that are not loud and guys that have them know when they should and shouldn't be hard on the throttle. It's the idiots that have no idea and just buy a can on how it sounds and constantly are on and off the throttle regardless of where they are just to hear the can. Those are the guys I hear about every year from landowners where the trail is close to their house. In the past 5 years we've changed our trail 3 times to try and reduce this problem along with going off the trail.<img src="https://www.hardcoresledder.com/forums/images/smilies/mad.gif" border="0" alt="" title="" class="inlineimg" />

News flash.

Michigan swings the same way Minnesota does.

Wisconsin they swing both ways.

Call me a old fuddy duddy, I am not really that old even in my 40's. But, I like to ride, more so now even then when I was younger. The thing is, they do NOTHING anyhow. It DOES NOT add power, if your lucky, it MAINTAINS stock power. It takes off what, 6-10 lbs, BIG F%CKING DEAL. I gaurentee just about everyone of us could stand to lose 6-10 lbs. I could stand to lose 20+ actually.

Times have changed. People are more sensitive. The urban sprawl is sprawling farther. It is what it is. Cans are stupid. Personally, what a waste of money, gee, save 6 pounds, lose 3 hp and close trails. Cool.

I knew this'd be a shit show....haha! Anyway at least his name is on his wind shield....WTF??? Nothing surprises me anymore. I have enjoyed loader cans years back but you just can't anymore. Deal with it. Like someone said just take your F'n helmet off if you need the noise.
