Don't know whether or not I should take off the exhaust

I have an 09 Ninja 250r with an MGP Growler slip on and I'm afraid that it might be TOO loud and when I said "TOO loud" I meant REALLY loud. I like it loud but I think it might be too loud for a 250 and for my neighbors.

I'm questioning whether or not I should replace the exhaust with the stock one. Or should I keep it on so that the cars next to me can hear me? Videos don't do the sound any justice.

If u take it off I'm sure u have to rejet the carb do keep that in mind. My Aprilia is stinkin loud too. When im day shift I leave super early and I'm sure it ppl off...but I try my hardest to creep out of the neighborhood. Let em deal with it but just don't be a douche and rev the motor up...

Hey - you're SW like me. Lemme hear it and I'll give you a second opinion about whether it's offensive or not.

But probably - it's not as loud as you think it is.

My friend tried riding it in the neighborhood and when he was a couple blocks down I could hear echoes so I'm not sure, I just don't want to sound like a loud harley. You know what I mean? Nothing against them.

Perhaps fab up one or just use ear plugs. My exhaust is loud but I idle by when I leave or come back. Where in southwest are you?

I'm not worried about me going deaf lmao! It's just I don't want anyone to complain about how loud my bike is. Or if they think I'm just like those harley riders or those cars with a loud exhaust and ride slow (even though that's true )

I live around highway 6 and bellaire.
