Exhaust sound for ring tone

I'm not sure if this may be permitted on this site, but nothing ventured...

One of my grandsons asked me for a sound file (mp3) of a V-Strom exhaust tone, being ridden through the gears in a very spirited fashion, so it could be used as a cell phone ring tone.
I tried both my Wees, one stock exhaust the other with peashooter removed, while I attempted to record the exhaust sounds on his android cell phone. After free reving, then running through the gears while on a swingarm stand, plus finally physically riding both bikes, none of the sound clips met with my grandson's expectations.

It struck me that there are many of you troopers, who have a different sounding after-market pipes fitted. I figured why not enlist your help.

Have fun, but keep it safe and keep it legal. Don't want anything bad happening to anyone helping with this elusive sound clip for the youngster. Thanx

Not mine, but how about this video I found on YouTube? I hope I'm not breaking rules with the link...

A microphone by your speakers or <cough>youtube mp3 ripper<cough> may do the trick?

On a side note...a few years ago I was waiting in a clinic for a minor surgical procedure.
The place was packed with glum faces.
All of a sudden, we all hear the Tarzan call!
It was a guy's ring tone.
It was brilliant!
Heads came up and there were smiles all around.
I will never forget it.

Sorry for the side step...but somehow this thread reminded me of it.

Smile Google it

Put it in as a Google search, some one will have just what you want. If you don't find with your first attempt, change the wording of your question. Good luck.

Thanx to everyone who have replied to my request for aid on finding a V-Strom sound file, that my grandson can use as his ring tone.
After many different worded Google searches, of the more promising Youtube V-Strom and SV related videos where downloaded and then converted to mp3 sound files, sadly they all failed when it came to testing from the android phone. None of the recordings where penetrating enough for use as a suitable ringtone.
Even tried to vary the volume, the amplitude (frequency) and the pitch (tone), but the resulting sound took away from the true V-Strom character, no matter which technique applied.
A few of the local track and club guys offered to make a selection of in-line 4 cylinder sound clips, of their bikes revving around 10-13k rpm and even down to the little unburnt fuel in exhaust backfire, etc, which would make good sound effects.
Sorry, it is a V-Strom unique tone being sought... Not as easy as one may think.

I'm sorry you haven't been able to make it work out for your grandson yet. Hopefully someone else, maybe with a sound recording background, will be able to help.

When I got my new phone a couple of years ago (iPhone 6s), I was pleased to see that one of the standard ringtone choices was a revving motorcycle sound. The choice was easy.

If it's a good day to wash the bike, it's a better day to ride the bike.

For information, here are two examples of sites that offered exhaust sounds:
https://www.totalmotorcycle.com/down...torcyclesounds and https://www.jadusmotorcycleparts.com...-Engine-Sounds
There are other sites that have bike exhaust sound clips, but none of on-board of a V-Strom, from idle to hard acceleration through the gears
One day I WILL find the tone that the youngster had in mind for his ringtone...

Why So Hard

I tried to find "Anchors Away" ringtone, and was even willing to shell out but couldn't do it.
