A few of theirs have been noisy the past couple of years. Yours was obnoxious Dave.

Make sure they have a baffle to quieten it down if you have one made.
I have a staintune on my xcountry (same as xchallenge), used to think it was loud, but not any more. Cant hear the phone ring though! I think it is the only muffler they made without a removable baffle to quieten it down, I am going to make something to make mine a bit more user friendly.

Spoke with Adam at "staintune" about these. He is aware and embarrassed that of a few of these pipes actually left the factory with some parts missing (first 15 or so) They will happily address this issue. So please contact Staintune.


Davo, now I know from a previous post of yours that Staintune refused to fix, free of charge, an internal baffle that came loose in your system. If it was a genuine manufactures fault, I am finding it hard to believe they wouldn't fix this for you. Tell us more.

Thanks for the information.
Just spoke to Adam, he was happy for me to send the pipe there for the baffle to be fitted, but I can TIG weld it at work, so he will send me the baffle tomorrow. Great service.

Just got my Terra back from Ian at Pro-Moto suspension. Look him up here- http://www.localdirectories.com.au/G...n/profile/Lr8E

He has some good tricks up his sleeves for tuning in the front end of these bikes and maybe for less $'s than you imagine. Pending available funds the rear shock can also be totally up-graded, Ian now has the knowledge, data, and costings to get this done.

He has done a brilliant job of sorting the front and rear ends out on my Terra with the Safari tanks and all it was needed. Also hearing nothing but good reports back from another inmates front end. You out there Rod?


Cheers,

Q

Keep it out of the dust for now I reckon, unless you want to open the air box up & fix the flange problem above the air filter area (at the very least).

If you are going to keep it & use it on the dirt then I would wait until the guys mucking around with 3D printing setups see if they can work up a solution. I'm sure I've kept all the dust from coming through the intake area, but who can tell with pictures of dust coming through the two pieces from guys who have opened the air box. And...

40k km and mine has begun eating oil, so I think the dust may have worked its way in and had time to cause an issue. I'm about to get some repairs to the Terra done so I will get it checked out then & hopefully see how bad the damage is before the warranty expires. (warranty - yes, I chuckled as I typed that !)

How much oil is it eating? I change mine every 3.000 - Its a real PITA to check the level. Been running the uni filter. Its a worry about getting the engine dusted. Need an air fix before the OCR via Tanami. I could bodge something up. Bike is still zinging along only 21,000km. Its a fine bike...

I reckon it's about 50ml per 500km.
