I tried to get a restrictor from the dealer and they will only sell you the whole muffler I need a restrictor when I go to Mammath Bar The Ranger there is a noise cop also and won't let you ride without a restrictor.

I have the Thumper Racing tip & it is a pretty reasonable compromise between the stock pea shooter & an open stock pipe. It should pass the noise test.

thanks for call the last week. Sorry we could not hook up to ride. Did you get hold of Monty regarding his quiet tip for the ttr 225 (250?) I am telling you it is quiet. If you need his email address let me know and I will call you with it
Hey Brian M (Is it the real Brian????Long beach, santa rosa, beyond???)
I went round and round with the ranger at Mammoth regarding sound. I can tell you this I spent about an hour with him going through different variations to get my e series to pass. E series with 12 disks was 107 dbs. With the quiet core insert and 6 disks I barely passed at 101dbs. The quietest I have seen is Monty's tip (the ttr 225 tip) that he put on his 400. Sounds like an XR. It's plain tough to get a WR or a YZ quiet. Maybe thats why I bought the KTM.

Thanks for the reply I looking at trying the vortip from what I read it sounds like that's the ticket I just wish someone has done a sound test so I know if it will pass at Mammath Bar? Is 100 db the limit? also what is the rpm he checks it at 3000?
Has any one test the vortip db on a WR 400?

I run the Vortip on my '00 WR. I had it sound checked once for a dual sport ride and if I remember right, it tested at 88 db. EXTREMELY QUIET, and yields good power gains over the stock insert!!! Hope this helps.

Yes Ranger Rick pulls out a tape measure, RPM meter, and a Db Meter. He has you rev to 3000 and hold it measure 18" from tip of exhaust holding Db meter there then sticks it in your face and says YOU CANT RIDE, your to loud and I said that F#*@#$ sucks.

18" is pretty standard. It's basically up to the person who is doing the sound test as to whether or not to cite you or not. In the forests around Eastern WA, the max. legal sound level is 105 db, which to me is way too loud for forest riding. Maybe I'm just getting old, but I like to run quiet (and yes, fast)!!! As for issuing citations for excessive noise, it's strictly up to the person performing the tests. Some cut a lot of slack, some don't!!!
