I was first looking for CRD Absolute Power2 but there's no dealer in sweden who sells them anymore. So my choice is ProCircuit or White Brothers, and im going with WB
But my problem is Weather to get the Pro Meg or the S-bend Silencer. Plus what head pipe, Highboy or the Taperd head pipes..
And i would also like to know how loud they are compared to stock in readings. Not that sweden got any problem with the sound ratings, but I dont want to go deaf
Also would benching the bike after puting the new exhaust on be neccesarry? cause i don't want to touch the jetting myself since im new to fourstrokes. Not yet Atleast
The bike is a European WR400 -02 It got the snorkle off, and no throttel stop by standard. No baffle in my exhaust but it stinks and i need a new one.
All help welcome.

Im thinking of just buying a WB Taperd pipe and put it on my original exhaust, cause im not looking for power actually but hay when im already buying i could might aswell buy the silencer to and go overkill ,cause eventually the WR400 will probably be tame as all bikes go tame after you know them a lot better
But first off im buying the head pipe i guess, im gonna split it over two sallerys, cause i need to pay for the bike too
But anyways, I cant go wrong with either Pro-MEG or the S-Bend pipes?
And hopefully not with the Head pipes either?
Any dB readings would be warmly welcome

I have the Pro Meg with 7 disks and get around 90db from 2 metres.
It is loud, but the performance increase on mine was amazing!

And how loud is a FMF Q Pipe?
I need to check all alternatives, but im not looking for performance at first, just a header that clears the oilfilter actually heh sounds weird maybe, but i don't want to loose the exhaust header everytime i change oil since its a whole lot of oil change.
All suggestions on exhaust is welcome other brands than fmf and whitebros to

After a lot of research I purchased the E-Series ProMeg because it made the MOST power (at the time) and that's what matters (I thought). I slapped it on and the SPL reading was over 100 dB(A). At that point, power didn't matter quite as much so I purchased the quiet core insert and ran 8 discs. That knocked the SPL down to 93 dB(A), but it also put quite a hit on the power too. It also doesn't help that the E-Series has radial sound dispersion.
For comparison, the FMF Q pipe tests about 94-95 dB(A), a bit less with the Powerbomb header.
From what I've seen, the current "quiet kings" are the FMF Q and the CRD systems with the new White Bros. E2 system looking very promising. WB hasn't released a lot of details on it yet though, just some pictures.
Another thought, if Sweden does the Euro thing (not sure), couldn't you order a CRD direct from France over the internet?

But my main problem is that i know absolutley jackshit about jetting so if i put it on it has to be slap-on-and-run
CRD looks like the kind of exhaust wich you can slap on and just run it, i guess you can with all systems, except you get the most performance out of it by jetting it correctly ?
But as im not looking for power, nor a new exhaust i could just buy a Header ( that clears the oilfilter cover for my WR400 -02 )
But the thing is, putting a new header on a orginal muffler? is that bad? or is that just a preference?
