Default Calgary sounds laws june

Calgary is bringing in the sound meters in june, 96dB is the limit, They are sending warnings for first 2 weeks, then its a $200 fine. I just have stock exhaust now but i ordered a lsr pipe. Does anyone know what a stock sporster registers on a decibel meter. I am probably going to have some fun, im gonna sit underneath the meter with an air horn and get every cop, bus and city vehicle i can.

I doubt whatever meter they use will be left unattended.

Here in Colorado they started noise restrictions on off road vehicles like ATVs and Dirt bikes (Cali hippies complaining). They loaned the meters to a local riding club to go around to dealers and test bikes for people to know where they were at. They also did a test periods at trail heads etc to give people a look into what they need done without issuing tickets. Maybe you should talk to your local PD and see if you can set something up like that to help out other bikers.

Just so ya' know. The cops will be gung ho for the first while. But things will ease up.
The trick is to stay away from popular cruise spots for the first while (if your into that) and don't be trying to impress peeps with that new pipe if you are in that vicinity.
We had a couple "sound traps" last year where they pulled over every bike that came down that particular road. But again, that was on the cruise route.
I think the law is there to use when certain peeps are out there being an a-holes.
I have "illegal" pipes and haven't had a problem. But I don't frequent these spots and just keep it cool around the cops. The police have more important things to do most of the time and lots of them don't like the law.
So, if you and couple of your buddies are having a burn out contest and someone calls the cops. They will have something else to get you on even though the smoke has cleared and your just sitting there b.s.ing.
It's there, (the law) for the a-holes that don't give a shit about anyone else.

Looks like they are doing that:

Calgarians, start your engines.

The city’s animal and bylaw services department is holding two public open houses in the next week to try out a noise snare prior to its deployment on Calgary streets.

From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, members of the public can find out how loud their vehicles are by cruising the city’s emergency vehicle track at 5811 23rd Ave. S.E. in their cars, trucks, SUVs, minivans and motorcycles.

Another session will be held on Wednesday from 4 to 8 p.m.

The excessive vehicle noise provision was added to the traffic bylaw last year and sets the limit at 96 decibels.

At that level or higher, a $200 fine can be assessed.

The noise snare records video and audio of vehicles as they pass by. An on-board noise meter gives a reading of the volume level of the sounds emanating from vehicles, and the owner of those that reach or exceed 96 decibels will be contacted by a bylaw officer.

Starting May 31, the noise snare will be on city streets. Bylaw officers will give out warnings for the first month.

Stock exhaust is up to 88 db from moco. That gives them "street legal" compliance.

I have the Screaming Eagle SP slip ons, and they are listed as "Street Legal in 48 States". I don't know the exact db but I'd imagine they are under 96.
