Q&A - Noise & Motorcycle Mufflers
I have a question regarding aftermarket motorcycle mufflers. What is the noise requirements or standards in BC for mufflers that are too loud and how should this be measured?
I actually heard one police officer say that any motorcycle muffler with a black coloured tip is illegal.
I have heard of motorcyclists being stopped and issued a Notice & Order to have the mufflers tested at an authorized inspection facility only to find that they are well within limits. This is after paying around $100.00 to have the inspection done.
Is there any way the motorcycle owner can test this themselves?
