Ditto! Powercore IV with optional insert
Indy, OK, help me out here. I'm going to get a new muffler for my new WR450F, was considering the "Q series" but after the comments here, would consider the Powercore IV. OK, I've found the Powercore IV SA which is "spark arrestor", what is this insert? Is it for noise reduction and what is tne noise level with and without this "insert". I like the "bark" but do want to keep it 96 db or less.

The FMF pipe is an improvement over stock uncorked but honestly it is hard to justify the cost over spending the same money on suspension. Yes it saves 4 or 5 lbs but it really does not give you that much more power. The bike already has enough. I like the FMF set up I have because it gives me more bottom end grunt right off idle over stock uncorked. The bike can be run in a taller gear in the woods without stalling. When it is real slick and wet in the woods I can put it up into 4th and be lugging it just above idle and it wont stall. Big help when conditions are real slick.
The stock front forks were not plush enough for me. I sent them in to MX-Tech and had them revalve and rebuild my forks after running the stock set up for a year. What a difference. I rank suspension work front and back number 2 on my list of mods. Number 1 is getting a steering damper and raise the forks 15mm in the clamps for better tight woods turning. The stock geometry only works for animals like Scott Summers in tight woods.

Ebay has an Ohlins Fork set which came from the Cannondale liquidation. I wonder if these could be modified for a WR?
PM me when you go to Talladega.. You will enjoy it but it is rather open. We ride much more technical in lower Alabama.
