    Default What does straight pipe mean?

    Does that mean no cats and no mufflers?

    Or does it mean that you have cats but no mufflers?

    From the reading I've done, it seems to be either and I would like to know what everyone else here thinks it is.

    To an old-timer like me, it means "nothin' but pipe".

    It means LOUD!

    My neighbor has a 800cc Triumph chopper with straight pipes. I can hear it when he starts it up.

    Did I mention that he lives 1/4mi away, with a couple dozen houses and a hundred or so trees between us?

    If it's got cats, it isn't straight pipe! For me, pipe means nothin' but pipe for the exhaust to rumble and roll through..
