I know what you mean.  The KZs and most other fours I've heard sound crappy
enough to make you reconsider turbocharging.  I'm not sure why, but I was
surprised to find out how deep, loud, and throaty my FJ is with a moderately
short, slash cut dump pipe coming out of the turbo.  I ended up going to a D&D
canister just to quiet the thing down because no one wanted to ride next to me.
It's just your basic draw through setup but sounds totally different.  I have a
couple of friends who run turbo GS's.  These are high 7/low 8 second Top Gas
bikes set up with draw through turbos and shorty dump pipes and they are really
vacuum cleaner-like too.  Most of the funnybikes are the same way.  My
EFI/intercooled turbo ZX-11 has a complete exhaust system and canister, and it
just sounds like a normal bike with a 4 into 1, which I definitely prefer to the
wimpy sound.

What are everyone else's experiences with the exhaust sound of their turbo
bikes?

Hi
I like to bring in another subject,and that`s sound (or lack of it).
In the bad old days,my KZ Kwak was fitted with a Kerker 4-1,I really loved the
deep throaty sound.Then I bought my MR.Turbo kit.Lots of horsepower and torque
but my Kz sounded just like my Toyota Corolla.Take the baffle out,and it sounds
just like a noisy Toyota.
It seems like the exhaust turbine absorbs the deep frequency's,and whats left is
a whimsical noise like 4 lawnmowers on steroids.
And what about the Harleys,one of the best sounds in motorcycling(in my humble
opinion).
Do a Turbo Harley still have that deep sexy sound???
