IMHO, it would be worth trying to swap with someone on KTMtalk, might save you guys a lot of money.

IIRC, there are basically 4 silencers available from the KTM Hard Parts catalog, the two SXC shaped cans (Competition and Supermoto) the straight can 58405083100, and the new Akrapovic silencer. IMHO, these get you a bit better looking can, that weighs 5 to 6 pounds lighter, with a mild performance boost at least in the case of the Supermoto can, but this comes at the cost of increased noise. None of these give a fraction of the performance increase of the Akrapovic full system.
Thanks Mack, now I have changed my mind again . Think I will give this a little more thought, might even run the stocker if I can find some extra disks, they are not in the parts book, any idea's where to pick up a couple.
In the short term I think my money would be better served by installing a FCR pumper carb from a 625 SXC
