cthornburg, any leads to this A/F mixture gauge you speak of?
Hello, I used the same set up as this and it works really well

Sometime this summer I am going to get a new pipe. I have it narrowed down to the either the FMF Q4 or the FMF Power Core 4. Besides the Power Core being louder is there really much of a difference? Also wheres the best place to order from?

The Powercore is noticeably louder than the Q4. Power difference? It's hard to say as I haven't ridden the same bike, properly jetted, with both pipes, but I don't think you get much more bang for the buck out of the PC4

My swingarm slider is worn through, and MSR sliders have been on backorder everywhere. I should have one in a few days. In the mean time I have made a temporary slider out of some wonder plastic, that I think will last forever.
Been out in the Flint Hills, Teeterville? Check out the logo..

Roughly 4200 miles on my Shinko 705, been a good tire, both low and high pressure. Getting a little slick now, 60/40 street to dirt. Probably will buy another, $76.00 on the shelf locally.

Get the PC4. The Q4 flow is only a little better than stock with the core out.

I opted for the PowerCore 4 with the PowerBomb. My other bike had the Q2 and it was notably quieter. Don't really know if there's much of a power difference. The one issue I am having by changing the header is I keep burning all my pants - even with the guard. I'm going to MacGyver something 'cause I'm running out of pants.

Looks like 2 for the PC4 and 1 for the Q4. Sorry Thumpn but with the price difference it makes it 3 to 1.

Thanks everybody.

First ticket, moving or otherwise in over ten years!
Make sure you tell them to take the money and fix the fucking pothole. Lazy idiots.
