Bringing down the sound!

Firstly, I apologise for yet another thread on sound and trust me usually I am all about making my bike as loud as possible.

Anyhow I have recently imported an 1199 into AUS from the USA and the bike needs to pass a sound test to enable registration. To date I have had very little luck, working with an engineer to bring the sound down through modifying the stock exhaust. The bike is still 10db higher than it needs to be.

Has anyone been successful in bringing the noise down significantly on a stock exhaust? Can you let me know how you did this?

I have read numerous threads on db killers, air filters etc.

Any information would be greatly appreciated!

Stuff the exhaust with steel wool with a small cable through it and after the test, pull it out. Fuck the government shit bags.

At X RPM?

Do your stock cans not have the baffles/Killers?

I wonder if i've got my stock cans. I'll look at lunch.
