Any experience with Big Gun Quiet Series??

Anyone know what stock db level is with the baffle left in? (That seems to be the quietest the bike can get..)
Has anyone tried this Big Gun exhaust?
Thanks for your input...

I installed the 2000 BigGun SDS with a quiet core and spark arrestor on a '99 WR400F. It was quieter than the stock uncorked WR exhaust, but louder than the stock YZF exhaust.
Remember when FMF was making claims about their new "quiet" Powerbomb and PowerCore IV exhaust last year. When DirtRider measured the sound, it was louder than the stock YZF exhaust.
caveat emptor - buyer beware.

Hope to see you at Stonyford on the 21st - I think I can make it.

But I do have to agree with Mike. If Katoom can do it, why can't Yamaha or the aftermarket?

With all the talk you put forward on the sound thing I thought for sure you would back some of my comments. I stray from time to time from Brian's KTM side over to see what you all are doing. Besides, the guys I ride with all have WR's. Stoneyford on the 21st. Are you actually going again. I will believe it when I see it. Bad news is I don't know if I can make it. My boys tball game. Hope to ride with you someday soon.

I agree with you whole heartedly about the noise stuff. I don't have any personal experience with aftermarket pipes on the WR - remember, I have the stock WR exhaust w/Thumper racing tip. I read somewhere that a KTM520 silencer can be installed on a WR and it is pretty darn quiet w/o any power sacrifice.
I've got to check with the boss about Stonyford on the 21st or 22nd but I really will try to make it - even though it's so far from Santa Rosa. Middle Creek works much better for me....
Hope to see you out there.
