FMF's are on sale right now. You can find the Q4's for $499 or less. The sound is slightly louder than stock, but much better. You can barely hear them on the hiway. If you ride in the woods, NatForest, these are spark arrested. Mine haven't needed a repack in 30k miles. Much, Much lighter. The biggest reason to dump the stock cans.

OK, I haven't heard Akra's with the baffles out.... but I've got Wings - without baffles - on the SE, and I love them. They were on it, without baffles, when I bought it.

A couple of weeks back, I was stirring it along a bit, down the Oxley Hwy and pulled in to the Ginger's Creek stop... and pulled up next to a couple of bike riders. A guy with a Hayabusa came over and said "mate, we've been listening to you come down the hill.... and that thing sounds fantastic". I almost asked him to take it for a spin so I could have a listen....
A man should only do the work that is required of him. To do more is a form of greed.

Eh? Loud Pipes Save Lives

LOL! There's just something about the right tone and volume that make a V-twin sound soooo sweet. And I happen to have a Flowmaster sound chamber on my Ford 7.3l dsl. I also remeber how nice those big thumpers sounded with a good muffler back when I was racing MX.

I decided to try HMF pipes, but I just received them yesterday and discovered that the factory shipped ORANGE painted cans instead of the brushed alumnium I'd ordered. I opted for these because of the Forest Service approved spark arrestor --- perhaps I should have gone with the FMF Q4's. One thing I noted is that they supplied replacement mid-pipes that are not connected as are the stock mid-pipes. I'm thinking that that might reduce the low end/mid range response -- thoughts? In any event the ORANGE pipes are going back one way or another!

Twin carbon Remus Grand Prix...

The sound is great, and you can't beat the look of two 3" pipes sticking out the back. Plus you can use the exhaust pressure as a leaf blower!

Got these from the bike's PO. They sound great, but are a little on the loud side for me. Anyone know of a source for the various baffles some have? These have a tip which has a spark arrestor, but otherwise are straight through.

Talking Fmf q4

I love the set of FMF Q4 on my 950 SE. I run them without the spark arrestor (louder and nice). No changes to stock jetting, just an adjustment to the fuel/air mixture screw.
