The FMF Q muffler with the power bomb header is a good choice. Xr's Only full stainless system with the quiet insert for the muffler is also on my short list. I am picking up a '07 650L tommorrow too!!

I plan to start with Dave's carb and de-smog mods that I found on 4-strokesonly.com then add a K&N air filter and open the top of the airbox.

Stage 1 is: de-smog/quiet pipe/jetting/airbox

I have a brand new, in the box Big Gun I bought from Baja Designs I will make a great deal on....Looks like a nice unit...Steel insert, ceramic coated exterior e-mail me if you are interested... Wattner@aol.com

Reason for sale...I had ordered an xr's only, and was told it was back ordered, so I ordered the Big Gun, and then the XR's Only showed up. I used the XR's simply because I have used their stuff for years, Freddie installed big fins, ported and polished the head, I have a coated XR's piston, etc....It was a tough choice...The Big Gun appears the same quality

The big gun is NOWHERE NEAR the same quality of the xrs only exhaust! The only thing similar is the price! The xrs only is ALL stainless, big gun is mild steel rusts from the inside out, the fit is nowhere near the fit of the xrs only, and due to the design the xrs only pipe is far superior! I have a FMF full system and loved it at first, but it got louder and louder, and has started to rust in the pipe before the silencer. If I had it to do over its the xrsonly pipe all the way :cheers:

8000 on my Big Gun "Race" and it's JUNK I will NEVER EVER buy a Big Gun.

Rust, Loud, it ate the "Quite" insert; it literally melted shut robbing my bike of all power :eek: The screws that hold the baffle in vibrated out.

I'm looking for a new pipe to replace this junk. $300 on a stupid exhaust is not something I look forward to paying.:applause:
