Good luck! I think what you are looking for will be really hard to find. Most pipes get louder as you twist the throttle to increase speed.

You guys aren't exactly being helpful.

What are good loud pipes that are reasonable on the highway?

Why don't you do a search on "debaffling" and try that with your stock pipes first. I punched out the center and drilled holes in the end plates after removing the stock oval-shaped plates/covers. That way you can "tune" how much noise you're willing to put up with. Mine's not obnoxiously loud in town, but it's much louder than stock, and since it's the long stock pipes, most of the noise is not noticable on the highway. I usually wear earplugs anyway, though.

H Dog check this exhaust system out..it may be what you want. http://www.peacemakersexhausts.com/

You need an 02 sensor though...I'm not sure if the 900 has one!
