So at this point I am just about ready to pull the trigger and order the M4 Street Slayer. I love the look and sound so I am pretty excited about it. Only problem is that it is loud.. a bit too loud, which I like! But.. I live in a fairly large apartment complex and leave at about 7 am. Right now I just have the stock exhaust so I have no issues with noise while I let the bike warm up and drive off. I don't want to become the most hated man in the complex, does anyone else have experience with this issue?

I was thinking I could somehow make a removable insert to really quiet down the exhaust while I let it warm up/drive off to the exit of the complex then throw it in my backpack if its not too hot! My only other option at this point is to just walk the bike out and then fire it up.. which isn't terrible seeing that this bike is so **** light. Anyone have similar experiences or suggestions?

I would be far more worried about the R3 being STOLEN from the apartment parking lot, than I would be about the noise.

placed between muffler and midpipe (up to -30% reduction noise) for 2 inch / 51 mm system.

Wow, awesome. I may just give that a try!

I live in a pretty "safe" and quiet college town. I also have a front disc lock, and a huge chain attached to the rear wheel that is wrapped around a concrete pillar, a bike cover and full insurance (theft coverage). I sleep pretty easy at night. Not to mention the person next to me has no security measures on their bike whatsoever.

Okay, you got it covered. Good to know. Carry on, sir.

hiya 72 moto.
I started the thread of farty exhaust.. after a day or 2 of getting used to no DB killer in my full akroprovic I now face unhappy neighbours. I kinda idle it in and out but crap it's loud even at idle.. not sure the M4 slayer bore size of muffler but the akro I/D is pretty huge....
the DB killer are such a bad bad afterthought. it kills performance, fuel economy, I really hate the farty sound with it in and in Sydney there are so many mentally challenged inconsiderate retards I feel I have to leaver the DB killer out...

in your case annoying neighbour DB out, DEAD neighbour DB in

let us know what happens

:) :) :)

I know the m4 comes with a baffle, even with that it is too loud for my apartment. I was hoping to find something to stuff into the end the pipe while I warm up and putts out of the complex then throw into my backpack. Think I might just walk the bike out to the street in the early morning and evenings.

You should get it ;D not to be an enabler, but the M4 is an awesome exhaust, I've heard it but I have a different one on mine. I'm always at a college apartment complex and those foo's are always loud! how do the other residents fare with noise? Maybe there's some noise ordinance decibel level that you can abide by that your management can provide to give you piece of mind

Oh I'm already ready to order this week. :) I feel like the complex I live in, residents wouldn't talk to me they would just complain to the building management and I would receive a fine. Plus a lot of cute girls live here and I don't want to make an enemies, am I right? Actually it's 70% older people and they like to complain. :/

SeventyTwo, I believe M4 sells a quieter baffle for the Street Slayer. It's the Q4 insert.

Taken from their website:

"Available dB reducing muffler inserts: Stage 1 part # Q5 (Installed), Stage 2 part # Q4"

Cool! That seems like my best bet. Exhaust arrives Monday.. I am pretty stoked! I would like to order a microphone too and upload a video for people to hear.
