You do know that the engine configuration and not the "pipe" is what makes the bikes sound the way they do. Right?

Most people want their bike to typically sound like one of three engine configurations.

a 45 degree V twin with a single crankpin.

A 90 degree V twin.

An inline four.

People tend to make up for the fact that they do not have the "right" engine layout for the optimum sound they are looking for by making their bike louder.

I'm sorry, I do not mean to insult you if you know all of this, but I am really surprised by how many people do not.
This is SPARTA!
