Sound Off: Motorcycle mufflers
Are there any laws governing how loud motorcycles can be?
State law requires motorcycles to have a working exhaust system, just like any other licensed motor vehicle on the roadway. KSA 8-1739 states, “every vehicle shall be equipped, maintained and operated so as to prevent excessive or unusual noise. Every motor vehicle at all times shall be equipped with a muffler or other effective noise suppressing system in good working order and in constant operation.”
