    GO to www.mccofnsw.org.au and look in the "issues" section for info on
    exhausts in NSW

    YOu can usually take it as a rule of thumb that them with loud pipes
    draw unwanted attention.

  9. Josh,
    Good one, the Ninja 9R purchase.
    The air intake noise, on full song is good as a loud muffler, and all legal
    too boot(AND FREE).
    If your Leo's have an E 13 stamp, they are compliant, as it means that it
    passes European reg's, and they are tougher than Australian ADR's. If you
    have the stock can, give it a try, so that you can see whether you need a
    jetting change,compared with the Leo's, if they came pre fitted to the 9R.

    quid pro quo - you give the science overview, paulh give the exhaust info - what can be fairer than that?!

  13. Thanks!,
    The Leo just has the manufacturer label riveted on..
    'Leo Vinci SBK L'. Atleast that is all i can find...These is a sticker on
    the frame for what seems to be the original Kwaka exhaust... but nothing for
    the Leo. The bike is already meant to have been jetted... and it feels
    rather punchy throught out the rev range...so i believe it is. Is there
    anywhere in particular that this 'E13' stamp may be???.

  15. Not sure of the regs but I always wonder how it seems there is a different
    standard for Harleys, not only the exhaust but headgear too. I wonder if
    their headaches come from the exhaust systems ??

  17. I once had a harley pull up beside me....he gunned it off the lights and
    hurt my ears...i was wearing my full face AGV...he had an open face 'helmet'
    and the old couple on the car with there windows down on the other side of
    him had to turn the hearing aids up a few notches afterwards i reckon.

    As I understand it the NSW laws are not the same in other states, or to be more
    specific QLD has NOT put in place the same onerous bullshit that the EPA in nsw
    have. If I'm not mistaken, provided you meet the maximum 94dB limit in Godzone
    then you're fine. Too loud and you're unroadworthy - the way it used to be here.

  19. Try this site, there is a rather small dyno chart of a 1998 ZX9R.
    The E 13 stamp is on the end cap, if the cans are carbon fibre, or the side
    if alloy.
    The stamping is around 10 mm.
    As you say it is SBK,(as in SuperBiKe competion), I would think that you
    have a "track use only" race can.
    Australian Design Rules say that you cannot alter an approved system, once
    fitted and passed for sale. The noise levels comprise two tests, a drive by
    test, with a microphone 1 metre from the bike at half max engine rev's, and
    a stationary test at 1 metre from the end can.
    The level for the bike(motor,exhaust etc as a unit) is set at 96 Db A. for
    Australia.
    Queensland does not mobile testing, the unlucky rider is sent to a Qld
    Transport Insp Station
    and if you have a stock can up in the shed, there you go!!

    Sure about the 96 ? I think you may find the ADR says 94
