    Two stroke with a tuned chamber???
    Four stroke 33 cc subaru with a stock muffler.
    What kind of engine are you talking about.
    I use a custom muffler to quiet the first.

    you don't even know of you have a 2 stroke or a 4 stroke?
    if you want maximum quiet, remove the engine from the frame.

    There are 3 main sources of noise- intake roar, exhaust and primary gears. Do a search here, I think the solutions are covered well. You make a inner cover on the clutch cover to dampen sound there, maybe an added muffler onto the one you have and you make a snorkel/ sound box for the intake.
    I bought a basket case moped for the paperwork, put the headlight on my bike from it, added stop and tail light and licensed it as said moped. Oh yeah, I stamped the numbers on the frame. Problem solved.
    The engine is covered because I like to pedal slowly on the sidewalk at times (no problem where I live) and the engine is very quiet.
    Where is K town?

    Now that is funny, i dont care who ya are :grin5:

    you have a 2 stroke, if you need to add oil to gas it is 2 stroke engine.

    there is no way to really make it silent, you will always have some exhaust noise no matter how many mufflers you put on it.
    if you want supreme quiet, you need to go with an electric motor.

    I'm in support of those who have said to go electric, just because it's obvious based on what I've seen that to NY a gas motor bicycle is a vehicle that needs registered, insured and licensed. It's not that NY doesn't like the idea of the motored bike, it's that they have regulations for it.

    You may as well ask us how to drive a car without plates, it's really about in the same boat.

    Here's my suggestion, which has an entirely legal answer, which will also be my last post in this thread. I can't speak for anyone else, but there's nothing more I can say that wouldn't at least be morally wrong.

    Do ask Pro said with the clutch and stuff the muffler (loosely) with steel wool. Set the idol low and you'll be amazed how quiet till you get into it!

    Hi thine82

    Send me a PM and i'll send you web links for making your 2-stroke engine significantly quieter; both on the exhaust but especially the intake.
