noise level at the race track?

is there a noise level restriction at racetracks? TWS (Texas World Speedway)?


ok this might be a very noob question. i ordered a used micron slip on off ebay and turns out it doesnt fit my bike R6 like it was supposed to! i think its an R1 pipe. maybe a 1/4" difference! i gotta be at TWS (Texas World Speedway) saturday and all i have is my mid pipe from my old exhaust. this bike is super loud. will that be a problem? i think imma wear ear protection when i go this time. i know people use mega phones and stuff so thats why this might be stupid. loud exhausts bug the outta me so its gonna bother me too just running with no muffler

You should always wear earplugs at the track

Sorry for the cornerworkers????

I would be worried about the other riders not wanting to kill you because the loudness. I can say in the past, that is annoying when people run open pipes like that. It makes it hard to focus when you have that loud noise.

well, my muffler broke off at oak hill during a cmra race, and they did not allow me to run my bike for anymore races because it was too loud. there are no decibal limits at oak hill either....so i would say....i think it will be at the discretion of the trackday owners or people in charge. i would contact meril or manu and get verification that it is okay before just showing up and making them look like the bad guys to send you home.

I didn't really care for the earplugs at the track. I wasn't used to the noise level or the something because it messed with my concentration. So I wont use them.

In your case, I would use them. I was only stating my case because someone mentioned you should always wear them at the track.

GL on trying to find a spare that someone has. That is going to be LOUD!!!

Looks like it. I've never worn em so when I tried to, I didn't really care for it. I like all the noises that comes with haulin . I'm used to the wind noise, it kinda gives me an idea of my speed without looking at the speedo.
