RPW, Now that is a sweet looking system! Personally, I feel fine with the stock system as in my opinion it has a great sound at a reasonable decibel level. However, I could see myself installing one of the RPW sets IF it wasn't obnoxiously loud.
Thanks for posting!

So how loud are these guys? Obnoxiously loud? They are beautiful, first of all. But I'm looking for something to give it a deeper V-twin rumble without being the jerk who wakes people up at night.
Actually, your first off was about volume/loudness. Their appearance was 2ndly :) How about a forum member discount RPW?

@RPW_USA : I would like to know about the volume as well. I'm sold on the OEM Stage ones and looking to make those quieter, but am very interested in the Ambush design if it can be made quiet. What are the options?

Thank you for the compliments! Not obnoxiously load and yes, this pipe does have the deep rumble. If you want an unbiased option they guys that have this pipe built the BLACK HILLS BEAST and have run it the bike since Sturgis last year. They would be good for sound/noise feedback if they are still active on this site.

The AMBUSH pipe is running about 96dbi at 1100 rpm idle with 58dbi background noise . We also make a quiet baffle for this pipe which takes it down a few dbi.

What's dbi (douche bag index? Ha!) But seriously, are you testing the dB using the SAE J2825 Motorcycle Sound Test?
If not, how are you doing it?
