Hi all,
Recently bought a 1978 R60/7.
It came with straight pipes.
Way to loud.
Any recommendations on aftermarket mufflers?
Looking for something with a throaty tone, but not crazy loud.
Thanks for any comments.

About 12 years ago I bought MAC headers and mufflers for an R90S - links below - very well made, chromed, sound great, somewhat more throaty than stock, but not loud. I owned and rode the bike for 5 or 7 years, sold it to a good friend. I recently bought the bike back from that friend after he also rode it for a good number of miles. The MAC exhaust system still looks perfect and sounds the same. Not cheap these days, but I can recommend it highly. Good luck to you.

Duane Ausherman's website has a fairly comprehensive section on aftermarket exhaust. Definitely worth checking out imo
