    Is there such a thing as a quiet aftermarket muffler?

    I'm looking for an aftermarket muffler that's quieter than stock. Does such a thing exist?

    Not that I know of. You can search threads where hunters and such have worked to silence the exhaust... only to find that the engine itself is a noisy rattling machine, so there is no such thing as stealth mode on a TW.

    Some folks around here have had success with a 45 degree elbow (I think 1 inch ID but check) attached with the outlet facing down to reduce noise slightly. Get a copper one to look snazzy!

    Yup copper pipe 45 elbow and angle down. The sound is directed to the earth and the bike is a lot less noisy. Also, a stainless steel header pipe made a difference on mine as well. Skid plate with a closed cell foam pad between the motor and the plate quieted things too.

    Induction roar, misc mechanical and drive chain rattling can all be better appreciated with improved exhaust note muffling. One of my TWs has this second industrial muffler attached to the stock muffler. This something OP can readily accomplish since no quiter aftermarket pipes seem to be available.Wave.jpg
    I recently removed 1" copper 45 degree elbow from the other TW as it actually made the exhaust note louder for the operator, something not reported for those who use 3/4" copper 45 degree elbows. Odd.

    I'll send you the one I just took off my 2000, it's quieter than the new stock 2013 I just put on. Maybe because of all the rust you can hear rattling around inside, possibly muffling the noise a little.
