Loud pipes on a C50 are for children. Hope this helps.

I always think of these kids who put an aftermarket exhaust on a Honda Civic. With a small displacement engine that runs at high RPMs you end up with something that sounds more like a weed whacker than a Hemi Cuda.

The C50 is a small displacement engine. It'll never sound like a partner displacement engine, no matter how much you spend on the exhaust system.

Music, Motorcycles, and Family... Nothing else really matters in life!

So golden pony, enjoy the bike for what it is, it is a great bike and you will have lots of fun on it. Buy yourself lots of other accessories and chrome parts, its a sickness! I use my bike for cruising around my town. I don't want to start another topic, but I feel this bike is awesome for cruising around at 65 and below. So that being said, I'm done ...I'm off my high horse, I hope I haven't offended anyone.

Gotcha. I am taking your advice to heart. I think a lot of us wish our bikes sounded like Harleys, ain't gonna happen-I know that. Won't post any more questions regarding this topic.
Thanks guys.

Anyone know the size of the pipes on a 2018 c50? thinking about getting these, but I'm not sure if they'll fit.

The header pipe is only 1" in diameter. You'll never make the connection work, as the ID of the slip on is too large. In general, there are no shortcuts here.

I really wanted that Harley sound too.
So I got a fairing, installed some big speakers and a powerful amp.
Then I made a recording of myself and put it on a loop.

You can hear me screaming from blocks away going, Potato!,Potato!,Potato!,Potato!,Potato!,Potato!,Po tato!,Potato!,Potato!,Potato!

That's the best idea I have heard yet. I wish I could find a motorcycle that sounded like a Harley but ran like a Suzuki! LOL, no I'm just kidding I'm happy with what I got.

Hope you realize that they may not be in business anymore or product may have changed. I noticed the last review was almost 4 years old.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.
