Ya, I bought the trail saver tip to go with it. Extremely quiet as in XR80 sound but it completely lost power. However it does give me the ability to poach neighborhood trails and nobody knows then.
Yeah I have the LEXX on my ATC as mentioned and I have the Q4 on my dirt bike. Both are nice and quiet and somewhat heavy. The nice things about the LEXX is the price and it's tunability. With the Q4 you are stuck as is, one tip and that's it. LEXX has like 3 or 4 different tips you can play around with. Both seem like high quality to me so no difference there.
I just run the regular S/A and I can't notice a huge difference power wise. I run my stock YZF pipe at the dunes only when I need max power and sound isn't critical.
Q4 is a nice unit with unique sound. If the extra $85 is worth its light weightedness vs. the Lexx then go for it. Also, the Lexx sticks out further than the Q4 so it may get whacked by trail trash faster.

Q4 is 92 dBA I believe. Anything that restricts flow will reduce power. I'm comparing completely open MX pipe to a Lexx MXe with spark arrestor. Yes, some power is lost but nothing you can't deal with. Insert an additional restrictor to make it very quiet and the power loss is very noticeable. Stock MXe power loss is not noticeable if you're trail riding.
so there is a power loss when the spark arrestor is in? every review i have read on the lexx pipe said there were good power gains. im running a pmb insert now. would there be a difference in power between those to setups? and also does anyone know what the q4 is putting out for sound levels compared to the stock exhaust with the pmb insert? i do alot of riding in an area where we really arent supposed to be(mainly just riding the road past peoples houses) but no one says anything because we are very respectful of there wishes and dont go ripping past there house at 10 at night. i have always herd good things about fmf pipes but i have also read some cons about the q4.

Here is the same setup I have on my 426, fmf powerbomb and Q4.
Definitely sound different from one another but both are good. It's really up to you can't go wrong either way.
