Some bikes come with noisy exhausts and maybe you prefer just deep but no louder sound, and this is what we are going to look at in this article.
There are other some change the exhaust system e.g the OE manufacturer was on a budget, maybe because they were not able to produce a motorbike with a standard exhaust system at the price you were able to purchase with, and so they preferred a simple way of just mounting a simple design rather than the best design.
Also, The need to care for the environment around can make one choose to modify the motorbike loud sound to be friendly and quality.
But How do we go about all this?
Get a muffler. The muffler is part of a motorcycle exhaust system, also referred to as a slip-on or bolt system.
It is a system that is only mounted on the back end of the exhaust system, and it is done by retaining the factory head pipe and just replacing the end “muffler”.
There are several types of exhaust system muffler as seen below.
Stock mufflers have a very unique and nice sound that suits everyone.
This muffler can be further be modified according to your preferences and personalities, but if you just require a cool powerful sound, you can just install it the way it is since it produces the deep cool sound that resembles the original one.
Note: it is important to keep the original muffler after installation of the new one. Since motorcycle inspection requires its original parts.
Some of the mufflers different from companies are customized to complement the original ones.
These mufflers offer better sounds as compared to the original ones, and also they are modified to produce better and quality sound as compared to the self-made mufflers.

Motorcycle exhaust sound depends on so many factors, each factor yields its unique sound.
The tone depends on the factors such as the diameter of the muffler, length and the material used in the pipe used to make the muffler.
The other factor is engine displacement. Permanent modification may alter the process of finding the quality deep sound when engine displacement is put into consideration.
