They just want your money, that's all.

I got one about a year ago. The cop said if I show up before my court date with a quieter muffler, they'd drop the ticket.

the cop told me I can pay it. contest it in court. or bring paperwork to court showing what I spent turning it back to stock, and they might reduce the ticket.

its only 60 bucks, ill pay it and see if I get another. if I get another I MIGHT think about quieting it down. but mostly I thought it was funny its been on the car for over 4 years

Have to show paperwork?...lol

All I did was change out my muffler with the stock one...and have a police officer come and listen. He said it was quiet and I got outta the ticket.

Of course the stock zx2 muffler isn't easy to get on/off...well it is...but having to cut it..sucks.

What muffler do you have and exhaust?

I got a ticket for no muffler on stock everything else.

And i never got pulled over with the white ZX2 for having 4-2-1 headers, no cat, and a glasspack in the middle of the car. IT WAS LOUD. The girls love it because it would vibrate their cooters.

you guys actually get ticketed for modified exhausts??????????

yep after 4+ years. maryland law says any exhaust louder than stock is illegal. I've never had a single problem all the cops I pass, and when I've been pulled over for other things never even thought twice about it.

I was coming up to a 4 way stop, the cop was in the grass to my left. I let traffic through then I proceeded through. I got about 1/4 of a mile or so away when I saw him coming up with his lights on. so I pulled over to let him by and the fucker pulled behind me!

so im like wtf did I do. naturally he took his sweet ass time to come up to the car. when he did he says im stoping you for two things, illegal exhaust and I think your right turn signal is out. I explained to him aout the LEDs and he said well that's illegal they're supposed to flash a certain speed, licence and registration.

so I gave him my licence and whatnot. 15 minutes later he comes back to the car and starts telling me about this ticket for the exhaust.

he was actually kinda cool. I chatted with him about pocket bike laws in our county. and PG county BTW sucks ass, no pocket bike is legal except on private property.

I have the exact same set up, and this is the same thing I was trying to explaine to the cop that pulled me over. I was all there are at least 10 civics that I can name off right now that are louderthan my car!! All the cop said was "we arnt worried about them right now"

yeah I think its a bullshit law that they leave up to the cops discretion. it is the end of the month so he was prolly trying to meet his quota and saw an easy target.

07-28-2009, 12:15 PM
I knew someone who would shove a sock up his exhaust for the test to see if he had made it quieter.

my 2.5in straight pipe dumping out in front of the pass. side rear tire was LOUD AS FUCK. much louder than yours. all it had was a kami and a big 18" resonator.
i was setting off car alarms 3 blocks away. no joke.

but then i switched it out with YOUR stock pipes LMFAO!
