Mayhem For Harley-Davidson Touring Bikes

There are a lot of good working and fine looking exhaust systems available for Harley-Davidson touring bikes. Ronnie Hacker who has 40 years of experience working on bikes, engines and exhaust systems is offering this “Mayhem” collected header system with the objective of offering bagger riders with a design up one notch up the customization scale.

Ronnie states to me that the Mayhem has hard hitting power that starts right off of idle and rips thru the powerband all the way past redline, with big torque gains. Available in black ceramic or chrome finishes. Hacker Custom Exhausts.

    This is why there is so much distaste for the Harley motorcycle. Exhaust systems like this serve no useful purpose except to show off and piss off the general public. Exhaust systems like this are the reason many cities are enacting a noise ordinance. My city will have one starting June 1st of this year. Every motorcycle (any motor vehicle) must have the original equipment exhaust system. The fine is $500 and no warning tickets. 2nd offense – the bike will be towed and stored until the owner has a dealer pick it up and replace the exhaust system. The public has had it with the morons on Harley’s showing off with loud exhaust and I do not blame them.

    Skip: please read the description on our website. These are somewhat loud, but quieter than lots of other systems out there, plus we offer for $10.00, silencers to quiet these down to not much louder than stock.
    I for one refuse to ride any bike with stock or quiet exhaust. After being maimed by 2 drunk drivers and 2 others that did hear or see me, plus the countless close calls I have had by drivers on cell phones drifting into my lane.!
    Who wants to spend $30K and have their bike sound like a singer sewing machine? The only H-Ds I have seen with stock pipes are the CHPS and many of them add loud pipes to save their ass.

    I agree with those who have expressed the opinion that loud bikes are a safety concern. Seeing a bike is a whole lot harder than hearing it. Also, it seems a bit odd that you could be punished for not having stock harley exhaust on your bike. And, in regard to the comment that custom exhaust serves no purpose but to annoy other people, most data shows that custom slip-ons improve the overall performance of your bike. I do agree that sometimes people, not just harley riders, do drive a bit crazy in neighborhoods and stuff like that, but it is not fair to assume that it has anything to do with Harley people versus, impolite people who drives lots of different bikes and cars.

    Safety? How ’bout helmets, bright colors,
    real lighting systems and horns with substance.

    Uncool?
    Supresses your outlaw spirit.?

    I contend that “intimidation” is the driving force
    behind all the noise.

    What are stats. Baffled vs. WFO?

    Hacker makes great products!

    Unique designs, great quality, and not the same old cooke-cutter approach.

    This particular exhaust isn’t my cup of coffee, but I hope they do well selling them.

    I think the terminology is LOUDER pipes, not just loud pipes. I mean some may say this is splitting hairs but when is there going to be a research study done by a credible organization into the safety difference between stock and aftermarket exhaust systems?

    I’ve been riding for over 40 years now and I aint done yet. I have actually seen a vehicle operator pull out and hit a stock exhaust motorcycle, afterwards saying he heard then saw me but not the quieter bike in the lane next to me. The bike he hit, the rider flew over my head. Hurt but not killed. And the driver sat on the side of the road and cried. I will not ride stock long. The first things are brighter lights and louder pipes.

    Sorry Skip but you loose this one hands down. The first bike that gets hit and the driver says he didn’t see or hear him opens the door for a suite against the city for passing that law. After a few insurance claims I’ll bet that law gets changed back. The corp giants wont like writing too many checks.
