If you believe everything FMF has told you/us over the last couple years you must also believe in Santa, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy.
Of course if FMF does come out with another pipe that is quiet, yet powerful, I suppose I will be selling my Powercore 4 SQ and my Megamax with quiet core so I can have the latest FMF part.
I wonder if they can manfacture this one so it will rub on my shock reservoir AND melt my side cover?
I can't wait.

FMF was, now correct me if I am wrong, was previously known as Don Elmer's Roost Factory? Hmm wonder why they ditched that name? Yeah I have the old Dirt Bike Issues. They were/are experts at the cliche marketing hype. Even fooled me once too Olson Jr. !
But what the hell if the new improved super duper FMF Power Core SA2 with new improved quieting action can come in at 94 decibels even with the shock rubbing, they may finally be on to something.

Fershy, yes, Tom Webb works for FMF. I don't recall his title right now.
AFAIK, Emler went through a divorce years ago, and his wife got the rights to the name FMF, so he changed his business name to Roost Factory. Apparently he later got the rights back, and returned the name to FMF.

What about the exhaust the race team uses in Europe? I think Arrow makes it (?)
If you want quiet I think FIM mandates that, and you know the race bikes aren’t slow...
Does anybody know if Arrow will be selling this pipe anytime soon in the US? At all?

I put a KTM muffler on my WR 400 & love it.
quiet w/power. GREAT set up. The best of both worlds. It was either that or the Arrow when it came available. But the used KTM muffler was a whole lot cheaper.

I got the muffler from a guy in Irvine, Calif. He said he rides the desert so it can be loud, replaced with some after market unit. Glad he did, made me happy!!!!!!!

I just picked up one of the new FMF Q pipes from Rush Racing over here in england, fit is good, quality not quite as good as the WB E series that it replaces, bottom end is at least as good, will be giving it a good go this weekend, but it is pretty quiet, certainly quieter than the e series (freshly packed, quiet core and 3 plates)
Overall I'm pretty pleased with the result
