Im not very familiar with your specific bike, but I do know what your problem is.cobra pipes are usually a straight-through design, meaning they have no muffler. the ones that do have a muffler usually have a very small one. smaller mufflers mean less fiberglass packing inside to absorb all of that noise. if your not too concerned about performance, then your best bet would be to go back to a factory exhaust. thats going to be the quietest one that you can use. Im sure there are also aftermarket systems available that also use a good muffler for noise control, but pretty much any aftermarket pipe is going to be louder then the factory setup. they are designed to give your engine more performance, which means less restriction for the xhaust gasses, which also means more noise due to the more open design of the pipes. Im not sure if your bike comes carbureted or fuel injected, but keep in ind that any exhaust changes made to a carbureted engine will require carburetor jetting adjustments to compensate for the change in exhaust flow. now, if you decide that your willing to lose just a tiny bit of performance for a quieter ride, then you may be able to find a used stock system on ebay for a very reasonable price. or if you want to stay aftermarket, then most companies test the sound levels of their exhaust pipes. by contacting the manufacturers, you should be able to obtain and compare the sound decible levels for different exhaust companies to find one that meets your needs.

Check Tucker Rocky. They are wholesale but I think their web site gives a list of dealers.
Look under Cobra exhaust. I have their 05 catalog from when I was a dealer and they do show pipes (4 different styles) for a Royal Star.
