Muffler Sound Comparisons

Muffler Sound Clips: Listen To Motorcycle Exhaust Before Buying

The quickest way to improve the performance of your new Harley-Davidson® is to install a performance exhaust system.  When considering a Harley® exhaust upgrade, there are a lot of performance exhaust systems out there, so how do you decide which one is right for you?  Sometimes it's pretty hard to make a meaningful exhaust comparison.

One of the most important factors when selecting a set of mufflers or a complete exhaust system is that you want to be sure that your exhaust sounds the way you want it to after the system is installed.  That's why we provide actual exhaust sound clips of our slip-on mufflers on the appropriate Harley model.  Short of listening to real motorcycles in side by side exhaust sound comparisons, these sound clips are best way we know of to let you know what S&S exhaust products sound like.  

Motorcycle exhaust sounds are a subjective thing, and beauty is in the ear of the beholder. Browse through these muffler sound clips and click on the links for more information about a specific product.
