    Is there a way to make the bike more quiet without compromising performance? I take it through the woods and sometimes I don't want to draw so much attention. Thanks

    Look at ATV silencers and such, as seen here. There shouldn't be a huge performance drop, but you can fiddle with your baffling and whatnot to get it right, and keep it removable for when you get back on the street.



    EDIT: This link can throw you a few more ideas. Ronnydog's 2 stroke can was a really good one.

    Here are the pics from the link above.





    I'm going to add one to the '04 TW that I just picked up. It will be easily removable by means of bolt together flange.

    I would love to hear the difference the additional silencing makes. If you have upgraded your muffler for quietness, please post a brief video clip (before & after would be awesome).

    Do some searching. There are some detailed threads on here about the subject. I think guys have made such good silencers for the exhaust that the noises from the old rattling air cooled engine made it not worth the effort. Good luck.

    I got some fiberglass muffler stuffing from the local ATV/Yamaha dealer, wrapped the cone with it and secured it with a couple of loose wraps of stainless wire.

    It definitely makes it a little quieter and I did not notice any performance loss. Cheap Fix!

    Hope this video works. Probably won't. Windows media player didn't reconise format.

    It played for me, thanks for posting it. It was exactly what I was hoping for as a "before" and "after" demonstration!

    Trikstr, That seems to be a perfect video for glassyandsunny's needs. Good Job. The real question is: What is going on in the other video that you have on photobucket?
