I have seen the Pro-Moto ones but is there any other brands that have the end caps?? Also if a guy puts in the quite insert how much of a power loss is there??? Or am I better off buying a slip on??? Thanks

The only decent add in sparky to the stock silencer I found was PMB. Easy to install with a drill and riveter. Looks nice. Only can get a blue end cap (nothing wrong with that....)

There is another company that makes an end cap... Purely Custom. They usually have an add in the rags. I went with the PMB on my 06, nice product but took away some of the juice of the motor. I'm switching to a Dr. D full system now, for the price you can't really beat a Dr. D system. MRD makes a nice full system also. If you want just a slip-on, go with the WB E2 or a Thunder Alley.

I have a quiet core for my FMF Titanium 4 muffler. It killed the bottom end so I bought a db Dawg. It was worse than the FMF quiet core. I don't like loud pipes, but what do you do?

Check out BBR ...I think they make a spark arrestor endcap similar to PMB.

Actually, you can get blue, black or silver if you order by phone (I got black). Going with black or silver allows you to go with any color with your plastics and graphics (if you are concerned with color matching).

... or gold. I put a gold one on my '06 when it was yellow... but now that it is white, red and black (henry kit), the yellow sparky looks a bit odd. Agree that sticking with black or silver allows the greatest flexibility for future plastics/graphics.

I got a blue one from my local dealer, it was all they had. It buffed right off and now I have a polished silver one. :applause:

I disagree, if all you want is a slip on, go with the Dr. D slip on. The E2 is a power robbing machine with the SA and quiet cap on. I had the Dr. D slip on for my 06 and it was awesome.

BnB, I have no experience with the WB I've just heard a lot of good things about it. I can't wait to get my Dr. D on and try it out though!

Dude, you are gonna LOVE it. My best friend has an E2 on his WR. Major dissapiontment. It works pretty good until you have to put the SA end cap in. Then you have an instant dog. :applause: I too had heard lots of good about it. I am guessing its from guys who have not run anything better, ummm, like a Dr.D. :applause:

My PMB end cap is black. Got it from San Jose Yamaha and they said that the black ones sell way faster than the blue. Maybe thats why you say there are only blue?
