I have a pair of 10yr old FBF on my bike. Wish they were a little less noisy, but do sound good. They may be made by D&D. There was a D&D decal in the box they came in.

I love the sound of my Termi. Worth the price of admission just to listen! Matches the rest of the CF well, too, do you agree?

My belief is that you can never make enough noise, within reason. When I am in City traffic, especially approaching intersections, I rev it up and make lots of noise so that people will hear me coming and pay attention.

When I am in one lane and some stupid cager is in the lane next to me, talking on a cell phone, I make some noise so that they don't change lanes into me. [My one big crash occurred when I was doing 70 mph, minding my own business. A Corvette to my left changed lanes into me. His rear bumper hit my front tire, down I went. The dick].

A few Highway Patrol officers told me, at times, that they don't give tickets for bikes clearly violating noise laws because they know the noise is preventing accidents [well, at least cutting down on number of them].

I often see people's heads snap to alert when they hear me coming. Noise is good. IMHO

Rotorooterguy;
Sounds like you crashed your bike all by yourself with the Corvette thing... if his rear bumper hit your front tire, what the hell were you doing?? Talkin on a cell phone??? Pay closer attention to what you are doing and you shoudn't be trapped riding next to people all the time.

More noise does not always work and a lot of times just pisses off non-motorcyclists that will be glad when we are all taken off of the street. Horns work fairly well and are actually ment for that very purpose.

What headers are available that have more ground clearance? I am grinding mine (at the track) and don't want to ruin them. I know back in the day some folks made 'em, but I haven't been able to track any down lately.

Any help is appreciated!

That's precisely why I went with custom spaghetti's by Doug @ ARC Fabrication
http://www.geocities.com/edwyun/spaghetti.html

Termi & Staintune used to make spaghetti's but are no longer available (or you have to place a big order or wait a few months). I believe there's a few other spaghetti's out there as well.

I went with Doug's because he made both low and high mounts and the tubing is a bit wider.

His underseat exhaust would also give you unlimited ground clearance.
