Hi
While having a blast around today i thought i would record how noisy my 3 wheeler is , as i have not driven other M3W's i just wondered how mine compares to others. Sorry about the quality of the video, skip the first 10 secs.
Any comments appreciated

Sounds fairly normal but a decent sound man could make it silent or horrendous or anywhere in between with application of microphone technique...it's very difficult to judge anything to do with noise level remotely.

I have heard your M3W Hugo and that is much quieter than real life. Did you have the microphone under a pillow wink . Surprised you can hear the bevel box with those de-baffled exhausts.

Has anyone fitted a reconditioned box from the factory, the reason i ask is that i am thinking of getting one in the hope that it may be quieter than mine

Also i tried to book in to Krazy Horse for a remap today but i was told that they are having staffing issues with regards to remaps and i should ring back in a couple of months, has Dan gone?

I have a factory reconditioned bevel box and so far no noise at all as far as my old ears can tell. Well worth it as mine screamed above 60mph
