    Hi
    I always saw ppl here borrowing stock pipes for RWC. Does that mean I can't sell my bike as private seller if I don't have the factory pipe?

    Thinking to sell my 883 now.

    Sell it as is with aftermarket parts fitted 
     , if you have the factory stock pipes and other factory parts  offer them in the sale price then it's up to the new owner on what they do with it.

    I am going through this my self selling my 09 Rocker 2 into 1 pipe with very little baffle, ( and don't have original pipes ) some lads when looking at buying the bike tell me. I will need to change the pipes to original for rego and try and drop your asking price by 2K others say Its illegal and can not be registered. 
    When I moved to QLD from NT 6 mounts ago the law is: for a motor vehicle you must take your vehicle to a motor mechanic get a safety check / slip ( $78.00 ) then take that slip ( not the vehicle ) into rego office. 
    So I am saying in short its up to the guy / mechanic to make the call on how loud your pipes are. 
    You do not have to go over the pits or be inspected by the rego office

    In my experience you wont have too many dramas if you take the bike to a car mechanic that also does motorcycles, provided he hasn't had any recent grief and it isn't obviously too loud. I used to get my GPz900 passed with a Walker 4-1 pipe with no dramas. Now and then they'd insist on it being repacked.

    Here in vic most roadworthy places won’t even look at your bike if it hasn’t got stock pipes, vicroads requires photographs of the bike and the blame will fall back on the roadworthy guy if the bike gets pinged shortly after.

    My Softail Custom with slash cut slip-ons passed a RWC in Victoria last September. She's fairly loud & lumpy, but I think the mechanic accepted it as a normal Harley note. Was mostly a car guy.
    About 5 years ago got a Streetbob with 2 into 1 big radius Roadied with no hassle, once again in Victoria. Both bikes really clean units, think that helps. No exaggerated bits or extremes, but both loud.  Maybe short shots etc could be pushing it. Never had stock pipes on my Harleys.

    On the other hand, couldn't get a RWC for my TL1000s Suzi with Yoshi Cans, mechanic said he wouldn't do it without original Mufflers which still have a decent throb & luckily I bought them from previous owner. Got RWC, changed over rego & Yoshi's back on. Sounds like a racetrack Duc, so I have to watch for plod when fangin' it. Original pipes in garage.
