If I may return to the original topic, the most reliable way I know to make the Rebel sound loader and more viciou is to swap out the horn. Cheap, too.

Im actually going the opposite way. The rebel engine sounds more like a sportbike when you rev it high. I want to bring out the sound that screams performance. I dont want a rumble. I want a performance whine!

Something that says im pround of my 9000 rpm redline

a dozen Burretos and a six pack and you too can impress people at the stop light ... as to the 250 engine .. it just does what it does best .. gets ya down the road quietly and economically

Not really sure if this is a Honda, probably not. But, I think it looks pretty mean and vicious! Whicked!

Don't see why not.

That flotation thing on the back passing as a tire seems to have precluded the need for a kickstand!

Seems like someone on some board in the past mentioned that most of that bike is just 'prop.' I've never seen it, so I can't say. But if it is, likely it's a whole lot lighter and less top-heavy than it looks ;)

Here's what I did and I'm pretty satisfied with the sound of my bike.

At the first ridge from the end of the stock exhaust, I cut the pipe. This removes three baffles on either side.

However, when you remove baffles, you also lose back pressure. I thought about investing in torque cones, but then I figured I could make my own. I took two 1 1/12" washers with 3/8" holes and put them in between the exhaust and the engine. I got stainless steel washers because anything else will rust out really fast with the high heat.

This makes enough backpressure to keep from backfiring and losing too much power. It's cheap, easy, and as I said before it gives me a good loud sound.

It's not a HD or a large bike, but it's a nice solution if you want some good sound out of your stock pipes.

FWI - everyone doesnt ask how they can make their rebel sound louder because they want it to sound like your all cherished American Patriotic Harley, but actually they love their rebel so much they just want to keep making it better. (hence the reason they make BETTER pipes for harley even, such as ground pounders), it just gets annoying to hear people keep saying get a harley get a harley.... well harley's are expensive new, and thats not the reason i bought a motorcycle :P

OH ! by the way Blue collar bobbers exhaust doesnt sound half bad, im satisfied with it.

This may be the final, definitive answer to the question...

:lol: :lol: :lol:
Of course, you'll need to install an FM radio, and the bike will likely sound really loud and powerful to YOU more than to others. And I'm guessing that, in 98% of cases, that ain't the target audience.... rofl
