Cheap tricks for Shutting up my Puch Kromag, Ideas?

Justin La Plante /

I love this bike but DAMN this thing is loud. I don't see how the exhaust cover would muffle this when most of the noise is from the intake and front end.

Some ideas-

Wrap the venting on the front in thin copper tube (cause that is what is on hand), let some of the wraps hang out wide and wire tie some black acoustic studio foam to it, covering the front and sides with about 2" of space.

For the intake (modified with large chrome capped filter) I was thinking to just wrap it in a strip of black acoustic foam tile.

Other Ideas?

Jbot bottle mod, or look up a club local to you and see if any of the riders could help.

Slowly and surely working.

An exhaust end extension with a silencer inset cut it down by about 5bd but strapping a sand bucket over the intake knocked it down by almost another 20.

If I wrap the inside of it in acoustic, it should do the trick. It has a good reflective effect off the body noise as well.

Did not know this thing could actually pull 53mph out of it's ass.

Next i need to attend to the breaks. (edited)

How is your bike gonna get air with that bucket over? Not to mention the added drag... and weight. All of which will be noticable on such a small bike.

Bucket is working well. That is a 360 open intake. its getting plenty of air. not feeling any dragon it.

Bucket matches the rattle can overspray and LED ground fx job pretty well actually. There's a consistency to the build.

The LEDs do look pretty cool at night. So far the bucket hasnt hinderred it, i took it all the way out to west town and back and no hickups yet. I intend to get something else eventyally. A bit more cosmetic.

Just put the bucket over your head when you ride, silence both the carb and the pipe.

Buckets are not a good replacement for helmets.

I swapped the sand bucket for an acoustic foam lined coffee bottle that works much better.

Actually it started with a really bad misconception in the form of my first post. Before i could properly apologize or retract it, the group I wrongly assumed was not operating anymore just started hate mongering it and trolling any other thread I appeared on no matter what the subject. But even that wasn't really much more than online bullshitting.

The creepy shit started with Jbutt and Dr. evil going after more of the threads i was on even after CCC was no longer interested in the effort anymore.

This thread is somewhat of a mixed bag, not unlike the hydrogen thread.

Some trolls, some stalkers and randos who need to latch onto a flame because some other dipshit made it look fun.

If Ive been trolling anyone, it was a troll of their own passion for trolling.

Why sell it?, the bike rocks and the coffee box is working great to silence it.

This is what happens when you don't have any edification in your gray matter.

I suggest before you post next time you work a little bit on your edification or just get flamed again and laughed at.

Did you ever wonder why your grandma always put both hands over her face when you visited her?

Now I understand your schizophrenic and you're trolling yourself have fun.

Do you need a link to a mental health helpline or will a 800 phone number work for you?
