I have my own Radio Shack Noise meter....
To make a long story short.....It's a Joke.
Tested with 12 disks..... 102
Tested With 12 disks and a Turn down (No Blocking Plate)...103
Tested with 12 Disks/Turn Down/and Quiet Core II ...100
So, for about $38.00 WB can reduce the volume from wide open down 3db, and it still wouldn't pass a California sound check.
By the way tested with 5 disks and the blocking plate was 92db....But at a price of a little loss of power.

i have an e series for my yz (if my motor isn't fragged), was it a loss of power you could live with?

Have you tried repacking your silencer. Just curious. I think mine is long over due...

I would probably do better if I repacked the can....Mine has not been packed since last spring. I have been having problems getting replacement rivets from WB....That's the only thing holding that up.....
How's the new house thing going?

Why do you need the White Bros rivets? I don't see why some standard rivets of the correct size wouldn't work just as good. I once took apart a Yosh can for a superbike and had no problems with ordinary rivets..
House...House is great. Not sure if I told you, but we ended up finding a much nicer house with a similar floor plan. It was a spec home and ready to move in, which was a huge bonus. It cost about $20,000 more, but we ended up getting a better interest rate and kept our mortgage payment right where we needed it to be. House is great, best part is having a garage to work in for a change. Now I just need to out fit it properly with tools and the usual stuff.
