so ok...lift your visor and you can hear at stop lights. maybe cut out some and be wise about it...some ear padding on the inside.buy a hjc helmet or icon.very good helmets and you can still hear. scorpion is ok to. ive ridin with ear plugs in and i know what ur talking about.but the helmet cancels noise so you dont go def thru out the years of riding.maybe getr one of those german half helmets. look around there have to be some cool ones out there. good luck noobi...:bud:

Well I see what people are saying - when I'm up at highway speeds or thereabouts the sound reduction is desirable - was out last night on a windy PCH at about 65mph and was pretty loud even with the helmet on..

So yea, I usually pull up the visor at stoplights just so I can hear better and experience the outside world a little more..

Hey Marcos31 I've got that same Yoshimura carbon exhaust coming - would be my first add on - did you get/install yours yet?

Cool - mine should be here any day - gonna get my 600/1000 mile tune up done at the dealer and then put the exhaust on (don't want to void the warranty right off the bat).. Nearing my 600 mile mark so next week will take it to the dealer..

But yea I agree - I got a black bike and the Yoshi CF was the only one that really looked great at least in the pics I saw..

Got my Yoshi today in the mail - yeehaw!

I don't like the big red logo on the front of the CF pipe though - I think I may cover it with black spray-paint or something else.. Red logo just doesn't work with the color scheme of the bike for me.. Maybe silver paint, but I think I gotta cover it with something..

Also says on there that in California its illegal to modify the exhaust system and the Yoshi is for "closed course only" - are they for real? Are the cops gonna cite me for having a Yoshi pipe on this bike? I hadn't heard anything about that till I got this in the mail..

if you live in CA and you get stopped and the cop decides to be a jerk...you just got CARBed/ticketed/ or impounded



CA is the most strict emmisions state in our country..... move to Alabama, i got told to slow down after getting pulled over doing 80 in a 55 and was told to slow it down and have a good day.he didnt even ask about the "race only" exhaust or any other mod that would give me headaches in an inspection state

other than small towns and crooked teeth. its not bad. theres somehting to be said about living in a college town in the south. hotties from all over the country AND a mix of hot locals for the off season.
(p.s. for those of you that stereotype...alabama isnt all imbred babies and country living...Birmingham, al (about 45 min away) was voted one of the top 10 most dangerous cities to live in, in the U.S....it kind of makes you feel all wamr and proud. hahaha j/k:2far:

is the red part just a sticker? if so a heat gun is your best friend but keep it incase you ever re-sell the muffler. if its not a sticker try using paint markers but scuff the surface up first or any paint you use will chip....fast

Clavamox (amoxicillin trihydrate/clavulanate potassium) is an orally administered formulation comprised of the broad-spectrum antibiotic Amoxi® (amoxicillin trihydrate) and the?- lactamase inhibitor, cat clavamox clavulanate potassium (the potassium salt of clavulanic acid). Amoxicillin trihydrate is a semisynthetic antibiotic with a broad spectrum of bactericidal activity against many gram-positive and gram-negative, aerobic and anaerobic microorganisms. clavamox and amoxil does not resist destruction by ?-lactamases; therefore, it is not effective against ?-lactamaseproducing bacteria. Chemically, it is D(-)-?-amino-p-hydroxybenzyl penicillin trihydrate. discount clavamox for dogs, an inhibitor of ?-lactamase enzymes, is produced by the fermentation of Streptomyces clavuligerus. Clavulanic acid by itself has only weak antibacterial activity. Chemically, Clavamox Map, potassium is potassium z-(3R,5R)-2-?-hydroxyethylidene clavam-3- carboxylate. The susceptibility of these organisms has also been demonstrated in clavamox tablet dosage for cats, vivo studies. Studies have demonstrated that both aerobic and anaerobic flora are isolated from gingival cultures of dogs with clinical evidence of peridontal disease. Both gram-positive and gram-negative aerobic and clavamox lasting side effects for cats, isolates indicate sensitivity to amoxicillin/ clavulanic acid during antimicrobial susceptibility testing.
Boo this man!!!! :kick:

LOL, no I'm not trolling - but apparently it was a bad idea I can see that now - here was my thinking though:

1. People like the open face helmets because they can see/hear/feel more of the air while cruising around (maybe not at freeway speeds, but just around town)

2. Close face helmets are much safer, but its hard to hear in them, feels like being in a vacuum or a car or something

3. A modification to allow more sound in would be the best of both worlds..

But yea, I didn't think about the whistling wind noise that would likely result..

The structural integrity piece of it, I dunno - a small circular hole('s) surrounded by that much intact material might hold up just fine, unless it was a totally psycho accident in which case you'd probably be toast from all the other impact injuries anyway.. You can put holes in other very stable objects and they are quite structurally intact..

But no, I'm not gonna do it - I'll just buy an open face helmet for the below 50mph trips around town and such..

OK...Grab an egg and squeeze it with your hand. It probably won't break. Now drill 5 to 10 small holes all around the eggshell and squeeze it. Get ready to clean up a mess....same concept.

To be clear, wind noise at 65mph is loud enough that it will damage your hearing. Spend the $0.10 and wear some foam ear plugs so you don't end up with permanent hearing damage.

Do you really mean to wear earplugs when riding on the highway? Its not that loud is it? Its loud and windy sounding, but not like unpleasantly loud.. I've never seen someone wearing earplugs on a bike..

How can you tell if they're wearing a helmet?
The clowns who wear half helmets aren't concerned about their life so I doubt they'll be concerned about their hearing.

Constant wind noise can cause hearing loss in a short time and without a touring windscreen the Ninja gets a lot of airflow at the rider's head. Less if you've got clip-ons installed.
BTW, at high speeds the wind is so loud that you might not even be able to hear that new exhaust over the sound of it.
All serious riders I know wear earplugs for any highway trip longer than about 10 minutes.

What the hell? What's this have to do with accessories for the ninja 650?:thud:
SOVANE, South Africa — South Africa, trying to overcome years of denial and delay in confronting its monumental AIDS crisis, is now in the midst of a feverish buildup of testing, treatment and prevention that United Nations officials say is the largest and fastest expansion of AIDS services ever attempted by any nation.

Well, you seem to have it all figured out so dont let us with experience stop you.

But what do I know, I just spend 2 hours a day on mine 5 days/350 miles a week year round. There are others here who have ridden longer than most of us younger people have been alive.

:rolleyes:
