Noise test discussion

I see alot of people are having issues with noise limits on trackdays, so I think a thread where we can discuss actual experiences and maybe even actual experiments. Please keep roumors and hearsay to other threads.

I ride a 2015 1299 base with a full akra system and tuneboy flash with a custom trim map. Yesterday I visited my local track with a 102.9 dB absolute limit. I was there as a tourist with no intention of riding on the track since I haven't been able to get one of my dB killers in, but I was there to meet people and watch bikes.

Just before they started going onto the track, the track chief said that if I could pass the noise test, I could go on the track. The track owner, as well as a guy from the local government was there, supervising the noise tests.
On we went, tried just because "f*ck it". Right side of the bike (clutch side), blew the test by a good margin. 107-108 dB. But since I had the testers for myself and all the other guys were ready and was on their way onto the track, we wanted to test some more. He went to the left side of the bike and rigged up the measurement. 96-97 dB! On track I never passed 108 dB, and the on track WOT limit is 112..

Has anybody else tried different noise testin placements? Regulations say 45 degrees from exhaust outlet in the position which is the furthest away from any bodywork, but doesn't say which side of the bike you should test.

there is no way this bike will pass a drive thru you have no choice but to roll off.

I had heard some tracks let the 1199 on as even in stock trim it fails.

My local tracks I have had no issues just because they don't care but I know in California (laguna Seca) it's a real ball ache to get a lap in without having to roll off.

As said, I passed and never exceeded the on track limits. There was a 2016 ZX10R and a RSV4 that came close, but not my 1299. I didn't "safe" past the measurement point, because I wanted to see how it actually went. 108 was the highest on track WOT measurement.

What is it that makes the Panigale so loud on standing tests? Or fly by for that matter? Is the clutch really noisy?

i should have also mentioned that the bike will fail a static test but usually slip through a drive by test. i remember when the bike was launched Ducati went to a number of tracks to address this.

you're not contributing to the technical side here... We know it's loud, we know it's not increasing as much as most other bikes on engine load and so on. That was not the point of the thread at all...

WHAT makes the static test so much harder on the Panigale? Testing placement clearly has a lot to say, and a healty discussion around that could help more people onto more tracks.

I wonder if the ground has something to do with it, combined with our exhausts outputting relatively downward...purely my speculation though.

The sound waves still travel out to the sides; being down low as compared to coming out of the tail like other Ducati superbikes, meh. I think it would be the same.

Anyone know of easy DBkillers that are effective and easy to remove?

Obviously, excessive noise is not good in any situation, but it appears the rules that apply to motorcycles don't seem to apply to cars.

I've been to various types of car races and all seemed much louder than MotoGP bikes.

This past weekend, I was at a primary Ducati motorcycle track event which we also shared with cars, bikes for 30 minutes, cars for 30 minutes. The cars were way louder than any of the bikes out on track.

We didn't have any noise requirements, but I just wanted to point that out.
