You're welcome. I saved you over $1,000. Do I get a "finder's fee?"

FMF Q4 not for me

Right after the first of the year, I ordered an FMF Q4 slip-on muffler for my 250L because I liked the idea of the weight savings and the nice look of the muffler and stainless midpipe. Well, after two different short jaunts around town on a couple of nice afternoons, I can now say that the Q4 is a touch too loud for an old guy like me. It's a shame because otherwise I really like the looks of it and it's a heck of a lot lighter than the stock muffler. So this afternoon, I put the stock muffler back on and took a spin around the block and I'm happy once again!Yep, quiet is good for me, but I just had to find out for myself and now I know I like that stock muffler better than I had thought! I'll probably put the Q4 up for sale in the Flea Market forum and maybe someone else can use it on their 250L.

Same impression here with the Q4, unbearably loud ...

But I made a dBkiller

not sure where but, I read something about an insert you can make to quiet it up a bit. Might be worth researching a bit.

Just a thought.

I read all I could on quieting down the Q4 but couldn't find anything that really looked like it would work withouth a lot of trouble.....and then who knows.....it might not be much quieter at that. I think I'll just move it on to someone else that can use it better than me.

Does anyone have experience with both the Q4 and the Yoshimura RS-4 full systems and can comment on how loud they are?

Isn't this 'insert' you're talking about the dBKiller mentioned in the previous post? Sort of a homemade version of this?

I had looked at the dbDawg but didn't think one would work with the bolt that FMF uses now to hold the spark arrestor insert in with.

It appears that since the disk that sits outside of the exhaust isn't inserted into the pipe exit, all that would be needed is rotate the dbDawg so as to avoid interference with the part that does go into the pipe exit.

Admittedly, I don't have one to install, but here's pretty good photo of what it looks like.

I'm not sure how the GPS mount will fit on the larger bars, it might be possible to mount it near the hand controls. Maybe next to the left mirror

I'm not sure if you guys wanting to mount a GPS on the fatbars are using a RAM type mount, most GPS mounts are compatible with them, but this could be an option.
I like this setup on my other bikes, nice and clean. I happened to have an extra standard u-clamp mount to put on the LRP, or else I'd have bought the cleaner option, would work with any bars since it goes into the top clamp.

Similar to this, but cleaner and not bar restricted.

Hi Goondock,
Have you tried using a resister inline with your LED signal? I understand that the stock flasher relay will not cause the LED to flash until you put a resister in line. This is due to the very low power consumption of the LED as compared to an incandescent bulb. I'm converting to LED and ordered these... Will not have a chance to install till March due to work schedule.
