Oklahoma and aftermarket slip ons?

I'm moving to OK in around two months, and I've been trying to do my research. I've seen conflicting reports online, but the law seems to be no aftermarket changes that increase the sound level are allowed. I'm on the fence with something like an Akrapovic (with db-killer left in) on an R1200R. By all accounts it is quite tame (too tame for most), but I'd be surprised if it wasn't at least 2-4 dB louder than stock, especially if c weighting is used for the measurements, as the Akrapovic pipe is supposed to be a little bassier than the OEM pipe. So, technically a violation.

How often in OK are people hassled with aftermarket pipes that clearly aren't drag pipes (that is, that are mostly polite)? The R1200R is already a pretty quiet bike to begin with.

Overall I don't think you should have any problem. There are lots of bikes around with loud pipes. Probably the only time it would come up is if you were doing something else stupid. They don't do any db testing that I know of. This is from experience in the Tulsa area. Where are you moving to?

I'm headed to Stillwater. I for sure heard many loud vehicles while I was looking for housing, but just because they're there doesn't mean I won't get unwanted attention.


Maybe if I plaster my bike with OSU stickers they'll leave me alone?

Yeah, I was figuring that as long as I leave the cat and exhaust flapper valve it can't be but so loud (and I have no intention of removing either). And I try not to be an ass in town, wherever that town might be.

I wouldn't worry at all. I've got the Akro's on the V-Max and have not had a problem. Also, its hard to be louder than all the Harley's so your probably good.

Now if your doing a huge 3rd gear burnout, bouncing the rev limiter in front of the police. Yes, they will add the loud exhaust on with the wreckless driving ticket, improper start from stop ticket, and speeding ticket....

And half the deputies in the state ride straight-piped Harleys themselves...

I live in Stillwater and have an xr650r with a slip on that is quite loud and it has never been an issue. There are a bunch of loud bikes around town.
