Does anyone know those pipes well? Can you get (most of) the power without the noise?

My wee-strom is on KSL for $3500 if you're interested.

The PO may have removed the inserts on the outlet end making it a bigger outlet & thus more noisy. You need to find replacements. Maybe an Akro dealer could help, who knows.

Nothing to Gnarly, Kane Creek or Gemini Bridges were on my mind as I have not done these runs before. Open to Ideas too.
Hi Podinis, I'm doing a similar thing ... fam, dogs, trailer, bike ... Thu through Sun in the Moab area. Plans are a bit uncertain, but PM with your phone and maybe we can hookup.

Anyone riding this weekend? I'm going to try for a kitchen pass on Sunday if I can get all my farm work done.

I'm got maybe 500 miles left on my Dunlop MX71s for the 450... Any other recommendations that folks are thinking of?

only thoughts are not enough tire life in the rear, and coming off the Bridgestone 603 up front it had a little more bite up front for loose sand and desert that I liked..

Also unsure on 90/100 or 80/100 up front... Thinkinng of 80/100 up front to reduce weight...

I'd love peoples thoughts for other dual sport 450-550 dirtbike riders if you don't mind!
