Malaysian rider with a loud or modified motorcycle exhaust? You face six months jail and RM2,000 fine

Acting on public complaints, police from the Sepang district headquarters cracked down on motorcycles with noisy exhausts. Personnel from the Traffic Investigation and Enforcement department (JSPT), Sepang, took action in the areas of Taman Bukit Anggerik and Taman Selasih in Bandar Baru Salak Tinggi.

As a result of the operation, two motorcycles were seized under Section 64(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987 to prevent future recurrence of the offence. Operations against motorcycles and other vehicles with noisy exhausts will continue in the area to preserve public peace.

The public are reminded it is an offence to modify a vehicle’s exhaust to the extent of disturbing public peace and causing a nuisance. The offence attracts a penalty of RM2,000 fine or not more than six months in jail under Section 103 under the Vehicle Regulation Act (Manufacture and Use) 1959 LN 170/1959.

        If modified exhaust is illegal..how come garmen allow these kits on sale at local workshops ?
        It is like saying gun ownership(without proper permit)is illegal but let shops sell without restrictions.

          Using these exhaust for safety purposes… Those who used it for making a noise, illegal racing or reckless should be punished, by the way the performance exhaust pipe system is legal from the factory with registered number so not considered modified.

      Rather I prefer loud and noisy exhaust. At least we know they are coming from far away and we not need to worry about snatch thieves. It is those silent bikes creeping up that should be a cause for concern to us womenfolk.

    One of the clear cut, visible & loudable violation on the road. Question remains the same. Why this menace still roaming on the road. Not enough enforcement again & again is the standard answer. Same category with heavy tinted car, fancy plate number & list go on. Change Menteri pun tak jalan.

    If you look closely, their bikes is also illegal in other ways besides the exhaust. Typical Mat Rempit. Not surprising since the guy wear the ‘bossku’ shirt.

    Also, no need to censor their face since they’re clearly guilty of the act. Spread their faces far & wide to serve as an extra deterrence.

      What’s all this rhetoric about banning shop?

      Not like the shop or importer paksa u to install also. You no buy, shop no sell. Installing loud exhaust isn’t illegal. Using said loud exhaust on the street is. If your exhaust is loud, put in your dB killer while on the road.

      I run my bike without a muffler also quieter than these kapchai. My bike’s centre box and catcon makes the end can completely superfluous.

      • ur comment is purely stupid, did u see any drugs store? Did they open in public and say “oh there’s demand so we supply” ?

        Illegal means it should not be selling at the first place. People who install are getting penalty but the shop who install those illegal exhaust (which they already know is illegal) should get the same penalty too

        People like you are just a stupid human being in Malaysia, this is why u can see so many idiots modifying the exhaust because “oh u no buy shop no sell, if sell means partly legal”

And those fking empty ambulance always turn on siren to avoid traffic jam during 730am to 9am too. How I knw? Because this happen everyday at 730am to 9am, so one day i follow those ambulance to their hospital and walla, empty car! Just to avoid traffic jam and we move so dangerously to give way to them.

Apa punya otak buat kerja mcm ni, sepatutnya x payah tunggu komplain. Itu tugas hampa xkan hampa x dengaq or x nampak kot Mat rempet ni waktu meronda kot. Klu sikap mcm nilah, rosak negara, so klu mcm tu bank kena rompak or org kena bunuh depan mata polis buat x tau aje la.. nak tunggu ada publik report baru nak bertindak. Ingatkan moto polis adalah menjadi menjadi keselamatan dan ketenteraman rakyat.

    Best way to enforce this is to
    1. Catch the offender
    2. Fine $2000 or provide receipt of shop then pay $200 fine.
    3. Fine motor shop the max amount you can fine.
    4. Profit and one less motor shop modifying these shit.

    3. Rider don’t wear helmet lagitu.
    4. And plate number is veery small.. I think it’s made out of white stickers and using Comic Sans font. Seriously small, the motorcycle brand wording is slightly bigger.

  • Hello everyone.

    I have lived in many countries (Spain, The Netherlands, Italy, China and Malaysia).

    Never I had face such a worrysome and extremely annoying situation as what I’m experiencing in Kuala Lumpur. I live close to 2 big streets in the center and it is impossible to sleep.

    I’m very surprised on why is this even allowed. They meet in the same place, every day with no exception and turn sleep time into a living hell for everyone around.

    If the police did not stop them, the reason is obvious: they have no interest on it.

    I will lose money because I’ll break the rent contract just to escape from this environment. I feel pity for Malaysia citizens who, despite being law-abiding people, will have to enjoy low life quality because the government wants to turn a blind eye and cares more about mat rempit rights than their working citizens’.
