How much louder is a Rottweiler than the stock intake?

Post by roblund6 » Sun Feb 11, 2018 9:27 am

I did a search from the home page of this website, and no results found.

So, yet (probably) another simple answer to a simple question. How much louder is a Rottweiler intake system compared to the stock unit? (Bearing in mind I do have the full Akrapovic sytem fitted, with baffles left in)

I'm getting a little worried that it may be too noisy on long journeys, and/or annoy everyone else that comes within ear-shot.

Loud. I always wear ear plugs now and my mates have complained when riding with me. I did take someone on the back once, but she's refused to go again, complaining it's too loud (though it could be she just doesn't like me).

It’s louder, no worse than pipes though. I ride without earplugs and my wife goes on the back with no complaints. Did over 7 thousand miles last year with my airbox and no problems

'roblund6'

You see, 2 person's have the opposite experience of sounds.
To me, the sound from intake after dismounted the second flies (stock airbox but K&N filter), was simply too loud for me (with earplugs and original silencers mounted) so I have mounted the second flies again and will go all the way back to stock.
I really dislike high sound levels... :(

First it felt too loud, but I got use to it fast, and would not change the noice level back. Having stock silencers, and it is very nice now. Other benefits are so substantial that you won’t regret.
