Question: Ive got to give up the Dr. D pipe. Hate to do it :) Just too loud for the 02 426.
FMF Q & Power Bomb combo, is it worth it?
I bought the bike new and the Dr. D set up at the same time. Never rode the bike with the stock pipe. I'm afraid Im going to notice a big difference, one less than faverable. I assume the top end will suffer.
Is the FMF Q & Power Bomb combo worth the money, or should I look at something different? Any comments or suggestions?

After a forum info search on the FMF Q pipe I'm thinking I should look the new White Brothers E2. All I see is substantial power loss. Less than the stock :)

It would be a LOT cheaper to just add a Dr. D quiet insert to your current exhaust.

I gave the insert a try plus new packing, still too loud.

I have heard that the CRD Absolute Power II doesn't choke off the power as much as the FMF Q and is quieter. A lot of the European guys are using these.
