Re: Gutting srad stock muffler?
I think I am one of the few of the senior members here that would agree with the statement that loud pipes saves lives... But it does not save you from riding like a jack ass...
I have seen the difference on our freeways with louder pipes. But I dont split lanes like a mad man. I keep a moderate pace (a few MPH faster then the flow of traffic at most) and many times people are able to hear me as I approach them. Granted, if you blast past cars, they will not hear you before they see you.
I think better then the volume of your pipe, it is better to ride with your high beams on all the time. Other drivers might not like it as much, but it REALLY makes you stand out to people.
