    Can anyone tell me how many decibels of sound there are in a set of Screaming Eagle pipes/mufflers on a 2003 Road King Classic. :) :) :confused:

    There is no big bore kit installed and the pipes are the regular factory duels w/ the round billet tips. Thanks for responding David D., :) I hope this helps you.

    I have spent some time researching the decibels of Screaming Eagle exhaust....the closest I can come up with is in the range 73-85 decibels. The proper way to test the decibels is to get a decimeter and hold it 18 inches from the exhaust at a mid range RPM. If I am wrong please correct me. Ride Safe David....
