Re: Need to Know!!

What is Muffler? The tin can sitting at the farther end of an xhaust pipe that muffles engine noise.
What is Air Filter? A paper based filter thru which the engine breathes dust free clean air.
How do we get different sounds from silencer? Depends on length/shape/type/amount of material used
Can we modify silencer to get sound as we wish? To an extent yes
Is there different names for different types of sounds generated? You can name them bark or growl or purr as you wish [evil]
Can we produce sound of sportsbike like R1,Hayabusa in Apache,pulsar? small engines can never make the noise a big engine makes but they sure can make a lot of noise.
Kindly answer my questions!!! I kind of did [;)]

Re: Need to Know!!

most of the engines of the sport bikes are multiple cylinder engines.

a single can never make that kind of sound.

also there is a difference in the exhaust note of a v-twin and an inline four and a v-four.

Re: Need to Know!!

You cannot imitate superbike noises with you regular cars & bikes cos stroke ratios & compression ratio are very different

Re: Need to Know!!

Hi All!

I am planning to buy a used Fiat Palio 1.2/1.6, wanted to know how is the car in general like: Fuel Efficiency, maintenance, over all car performance, is it good with CNG or not, would CNG give me good results/mileage in a Palio.

I am planning to sell my Esteem LX 97 -CNG (Condition: not so good) the dealer has quoted me 30K without the CNG kit as I am planning to remove the CNG and install it in my next car (Perhaps Palio). Please let me know your thoughts on the Price part for the Esteem 97 without CNG and with CNG.

I mean how much shall give it for with and without CNG..

Please Advice..

Will be looking forward to hearing from all.

Thanks in advance.

that is not true.

the compression ratios do not make a difference to the exhaust sound.

engine layout, symmetry and number of cylinders do.

Re: Need to Know!!

I am not saying you can get that sound with a single cylinder,even with a 4 cylinder v tec or anything,as his question was to get a superbike sound,which is an inline 4 in most cases ,a superbike has a shorter stroke,and as it reaches higher rpm it needs good octane rating fuel,its just my personal experience & observation with Sbks.

Re: Need to Know!!

I asked this question because, when i was in Bengaluru, i came across traffic signal. Where iin the front two guys were in Sport bike, one is YAMAHA mt01 and other one is mostly R1. And the roaring sound of those bikes impressed me a lot. Within few seconds after signal light became green, they just vanished. [surprise]

Re: Need to Know!!

A friend of mine had the Mt 01,its got a rumble sound,
Ya super bikes are blinding fast,but try stopping them at the same rate you accelerated on our uneven Indian roads then that is quite a challenge

Re: Need to Know!!

Superbikes have tremendous brakes, and if you are not comfortable with them, get aftermarket ABS.

that is pretty obvious,as i said try breaking at the same rate,meaning if you took like a good distance to accelerate to 160 & if you want to stop the distance taken is more than you accelerated,I have had some "This is It!!" moments myself but a litre class superbike can rarely brake as fast as it can accelerate(full throttle)
