I think in terms of aftermarket exhausts, if it was clear that buying a specific exhaust was going to meet the new sound requirements, most people would just put the money down and get it over with.
What sucks is having to be a guinea pig and shell out hard earned money only to get sound tested and find out that, low an behold, you just pissed away $300 because your bike is still at 98DB! What's worse, now turn around and drive home because you can't ride at that level.

I agree with you - I think it's worth the money to get a good after market pipe. I bought a PMB insert and it was much too restrictive. The PC496 allows power performance at least as good (maybe better) than the the stock pipe without the cork and is a few pounds lighter.

Poway Rider, I was not referring to you personally, you were just the last post so it looked I replied to you but it wasn't meant that way.

The FMF Q is louder than these inserts but it makes considerably more power. For the type of riding I do and the people I ride with, I need the extra hp. Otherwise, I beat them in the corners only to lose on the straights and long up hills.
