Motokazie and Sound Testing
Motokazie will follow the AMA rule for 94 dB/A. Click on the link
for more information on the rule, testing and making your bike legal.
The American Motorcyclist Association sound rule, enforced by District
23 and Motokazie, is important to all riders. Each machine is tested
at a set RPM based on information from the manufacturer and the
Motorcycle Industry Council. The test is taken 20 inches from the
exhaust tip at a 45 degree angle. This test is called the SAE J1287.
J1287 procedure guidelines)
In 2011 the AMA has decided to match up with the FIM
and make 94 dBa, the maximum decibels for 4-stroke machines. On
top of that, the AMA will be going to a standard RPM for the different
size machines. Please note that this RPM is for quads and bikes.
Quieting the pipe you already have
There are several different options
you have to reduce the sound output of your exhaust.
- Repack. The packing in all silencers needs
changing just like engine oil. All silencers are different but
typically they need to be repacked at 15-25 hours.

- Inserts. There are many different inserts
you can put in your exhaust to quiet it down. Motokazie has a
variety that we carry to all the races and many aftermarket exhaust
companies sell inserts for the pipes they manufacture. Generally,
anything bigger than 1.5 inches at the exhaust exit will not pass.

If you want the performance gains of an aftermarket exhaust,
make sure the pipe meets the 2011 94dB/A standard. Most manufacturers
are currently producing exhaust systems that meet 2011 standards
but some are behind the curve. Make sure the manufacturer stands
behind or guarantees its dB/A rating. All pipes should come with,
or you should be able to purchase, different inserts for more tuning
options. As the summer progresses, MK will have a chart of various
pipes testing results to help you better decide what to buy. (What
pipes are passing)
