JamesD : question on Big gun sds for you
Posted June 05, 2000 - 01:53 PM
I read your postings on the Big Gun SDS. Do you know what RPM range your bike was at when you tested with the quiet core spark arrestor or is the info you gave based on what Big Gun stated. This system is a big investment for me and I want to make sure it is the correct choice. Big Gun is also stating that they now make a super quiet core . Have you been able to test this as well.
Thanks for the added info ahead of time

The quiet core isn't *supposed* to reduce power over the race core but that might be marketing hype.
The super quiet core is supposed to reduce power *slightly* (is slightly 1hp or 10hp?) but anything has to be better than that straw insert from the factory!
I think one of the best features of the Big Guns is the ability to change the core according to what you'll be doing.

I too am waiting to see this article in Dirt Bike. I believe only the subscribers have seen it. Some shops, like Bob's Cycle Supply, used to get the issues before I, as a subscriber, got it! What is up with that?
I will be changing my exhaust as well, prior to Moab. Hopefully, a lot sooner!
Anyone know the noise requirements for Hare Scrambles?

When you buy an exhaust system think about where you will be riding. If your riding is all high end revving to the moon, then go with a top end system. For myself, most of the time riding is on trials, hills and tracks where strong low-end, strong mid-range and tractability are far more useful than a few extra horsepower on the top end. That is why the BigGun SDS works so well for me.
