What do you guys recommend?

At the moment I'm running the stock system with the HRC tip/spark arrestor on my '07 model.

I know the standard headers are quite restrictive, and was thinking of upgrading the whole system - on the short list is the FMF with a Q2 silencer, or XR's Only system (either the standard or Race edition, just concerened about noise on the street/trail). However, I've found somewhere that has a White Bros header (and E2 silencer) at a good price - so what do you guys think?

All recommendations gratefully received...

I run the Pro Circuit Full system on my 04 and love it... I think I have a pic of it in my garage... If you are running a full uncorked air box you will want to change out the stock head pipe.

I am still running the stock pipe as well.

If I was going to switch... I would run with the BarnumsPro header and pipe.

same question here, what gives out the best performance and resonable sound? I cant decide between FMF powerbomb, Pro Circiut T4, or XR's only. Also will the bike run ok with a aftermarket header and keep the stock can with HRC tip?

I went from the stock muffler with the HRC tip to the full FMF Powerbomb and there was very little difference. I recently switched to the full Pro Circuit system and was very pleased! Much faster on top!!! I have no first hand knowledge of the XR's only but I know this has been highly recommended by others. The only problem is dealing with XR's only. If you decide to go with XR's only I would buy it from Chris Blais (Blais Racing). This way you will be sure it ships on time and you get what you want when you want it.
