As my cans sound rather fruity I was thinking of swapping them out for the standard cans !

just don't want too attract the attention of too many police.

what do you think i should do, keep the noise on or swap for sedate subtle sound ?

erdferkel you may be best to comment ?

hello,

if the cans are ok in the country where your bike is plated, there won't be trouble by the german police. the "STVZO" the rules for sound, lights and everything appies only for german plated bikes.
klaus58 has a french plate, and the bike is very loud, and has some more modfications the "tüv" might not approve of, but as it has a french plate....
brakes, lights and such must be working of course, but if the sound restrictions in the country of origin of the bike are not as restrictive as in germany it should be ok.
i'll ask a german lawyer in the german forum as well.

hmm, I have heard from Belgian bikers that have had to leave their bike at the side of the road in the Eifel region to be picked up with a trailer... Got a nice fine on top of it as well.
Yamaha XJ600S Diversion '94
Yamaha XJ900S Diversion '97
Suzuki SV650S '01
Yamaha TDM900 '04

Yamaha XT660Z Ténéré '08 + Yamaha TRX850 '97

I'll let go of my throttle when they pry it from my cold, dead hands...

ahh, yes, the eifel region is special. because of the huge amount of open racing cans the police there use drastic measures, they even confiscate open cans from the bikes and everything. even if it is an older legal can or a corroded stock can, if it's too loud, they end the ride.... this practice is a little controversial in the legal system....
i'll post the answer from the german lawyer as soon as i get it...
