    I finally got my Roadhouse slip-on and I don't know what to say.

    It sounds great! It's loud! Who said the sound level on these were 5 on a scale of 1 to 10? I think it's more like 7, or even 8! I've heard some loud pipes and this definitely is not a 5. Maybe something's wrong with mine? Either that, or I'm way too old for this.

    Anyways, it's got everybody looking at my bike in the street. I can definitely get more attention now when I lane split.

    I'll post some video tomorrow with the sound. You guys be the judge.

    Roadhouse Rules! To me sound level is around 7. Not as loud as the cobras but just in the edge of being illegal in the db scale here. Its just a matter of taste and individuality. I like the cobra's but I wanted to keep the original look of the bike.
    Safe riding!!

    I put the RH on and they were nice and loud. Then, I happened to be feeling around down by the connection/joint and I noticed an exhaust leak coming from that spot. When I slid them on tighter, the pipes became quieter. Or maybe I'm going deaf from all this fun, I dunno. But just for kicks, check the connection from your slip-ons to your pipe. See if it's blowing a little air down there. Even quieter, I still like 'em!

    Why would you be feeling down there? You're a sick man.


    I'll check the clamp tomorrow and "feel down there".

    Maybe the I got used to the sound... or the pipes, settled? Is not as loud as initially thought. It is still loud, though! My neighbor told me yesterday, that since I got the RH, he can hear me come and go.

    Hey - as long as you got the right Thunder Air Kit cover (just like mine), you're way ahead of the game!
