Thanks for the chart. Anyone who's owned both Wings and Q4's have thoughts on comparison? I expect the Wings to be of better quality, (cost more), but how do the Q4's and Wings compare on the topics of sound level, and sound tone / type?

FMF's are no where near the quality and quite a bit louder. Expect the spark arrestor to fall out in a year.

wings are great

Another thing to consider when purchasing Wings is, that virtually every piece is available for replacement due to wear or damage.

In a very bad crash I damaged both nos/cfec pipes and thought I would have to purchase 2 new pipes for my replacement bike.

Through Alternate Cycle who is the Canadian dealer, I bought 2 new titanium sleeves (main body), 1 carbon fibre end cap, and all the special ss rivets to rebuild both damaged pipes- $300 Can- the pipes both look like new and I couldn't be more satisfied

Thanks for the chart. Looks like the Wings are quieter than the Q4. I've got 24k on my Q4s and the inserts look almost new and I've had no problems with the cans.I still wish I had the Wings from what I've read and the looks.
