Elementary...my dear Watson!
Remove the silencers, make a few runs at full throttle through your local town at midnight and wait for the cops to get thier sirens going. Then wait for the noise the wife will make when she has to bail you out........ all in all...lots more noise.
Andy, I build both the standard Commando header pipes and Peashooter mufflers and big bore headers and Peashooters.
I can build these Peashooters with nothing inside if thats what you wanted.
All that I build is available in Black Chrome as well.
drop me a note.
Is it really the NOISE, or the SOUND you want to improve?!?!
I have listened to Harleys that were just LOUD, no good sound at all…
I reckon you hardly get a better noise than a fine and sorted out Commando that is being accelerated from standing start. The sound from those peashooters is just amazing and I am glad my Commando 750 S does not bring out too much noise.
The peashooters were originally designed for the bike, giving it the perfect power-to-sound balance as well (Thanx Wolff Olins!!). Anything else is a bad compromise, in my eyes.
If you want the real grumpy, unadolescent, filthy sound, go and buy yourself a Norton 500cc longstroke Manx. THAT must be like the bells of hells. Sets you back top $$$$, though, but must be one of life’s greatest joys.
Easiest solution: revv your Commando 4000–5000 rpm while you are not wearing a helmet, and it sounds perfect.
