Question SXC Exhaust on 03 LC4 Adventurer

After reading the treads on the muffler cans available for the LC4 I have narrowed my choice down to these two.
LC4 Muffler Enduro version 94db. 58305081300 FITMENT: LC4 94-04, SC 94-04, Adventure 98-04, Duke 94-98

LC4 Muffler Supermoto version 98db. 58405081100 FITMENT: LC4 94-04, SC 94-04, Adventure 98-04, Duke 94-98





Has anyone out there run one of these as a replacement, near as I can tell the Enduro version has spark arrestor, and the Supermoto does not. The spark arrestor model adds about $125 dollars to the price, and is quiet, but does it flow similar to Supermoto, or should I say is the power gain worth the noise. The only thing I know for sure is that the shiny stainless Supertrap is going. I will consider offers, if anyone wants it.

Have you been over on ktmtalk.com? Lots of threads on LC4 exhausts including quite a bit of info on the tradeoffs between these two.

The cliff notes version:

The enduro muffler makes similar power to the stock supertrapp, sounds about the same, looks a lot better, and weighs about half.

The supermoto muffler offers modest power gains (if jetted properly), is quite a bit louder, and might get you in trouble if you're riding in the woods without the spark arrestor.

I went with the quiet pipe. Actually, I'm waiting for it now - it is backordered.

Where'd you get the idea the enduro costs $125 more? According to online pricing, it's $30 less.

I expect Katoum is referencing the OEM (sparky equiped) 625 SXC silencer which is more expensive, rather then the non-sparky equiped Hard Parts SXC aftermarket silencer.

I would suggest you get the one of these two, depending on your need for a Spark arrestor, as the SXC Supermoto is a tad loud, but would be fine for an SMC or something similar used on the street. (For those that already have these silencers on their 625's, IMHO there is no real advantage in the Hard Parts silencers over these OEM SXC silencers, at least not enough IMO to warrant the expense.)

Thanks guys for you input, and yes I was referring to the Sparky (Karisman) which is more. For me noise and weight, flow, appearance are all important so I'm getting the Sparky version. The Akaprovic would have been a good choice if they had designed the rear the same as the 950 Adventurer with a good looking insert, then added a spark arrester as a option, but thats not the case.
