    I run a Yoshi so I’m probably the last guy to offer info on this, but everyone I know that is looking to quiet down their bike is running the silent rider

    You can also reduce your decibels by adding a turned down tip with a diameter of 1 inch or smaller.

    I run a silent rider and the difference between it and stock is amazing. I recommend it.

    Did you feel a power loss?

    I can't detect any power loss at all, low end or top end. I've put a lot of miles on it now and it was worth every penny.

    I put a new Silent Rider on my 2019 Viking EPS and all I measured was a 2 dB reduction, both in the cab and behind my Viking. It was just enough reduction to notice it, and that is all.

    I got 6 DB off with my silent rider, measuring about a foot away from the exhaust. But decibels are on a logarithmic scale, so it's makes a pretty good difference. And it eliminates the popping sound of the exhaust. The person at silent rider said it would reduce the noise by about half, but I can't say that it's that much. I get the impression that the Hushpower muffler may be more quiet, but I can't figure out who the manufacturer is of that one to contact.

    Next step is to get some noise insulating material between the engine and the passengers, hoping the two things combined will do the trick.
