Ditto - just got a new R and trying to decide on exhaust. I just want to be sure and get something with a spark arrestor as I'll be riding in the National Forest; but still want the best performance I can get.

I guess I'll have to go with 2nd best because XR's Only will never see another penny of my business after the way I was treated.

I have the Powerbomb Header and the Q2 and use this for pre-running and trail use. The simple answer is it's lighter than stock but no real seat of the pants, noticable power gain. However, it does give you a good balance of power; Good torque and good top end. If you want top end then the Pro Circuit or XR's only is better but you lose some of the low end.

Ciao pgiinc, I put the FMF powerbomb header pipe and I tested it on Soft-Engine Dynamometer.

This is the result...........

From the graphic I removed two curves which refer to other upgrades.......(see its later......)

Is the FMF Q2 more or less restrictive than a stock exhaust with the HRC spark arrestor?

I've got my bike fully HRC uncorked, with a cut out side panel, & stock exhaust. Besides the size of the stock exhaust, I have no complaints about it's power, or it's noise. I'm guessing I'm a bit over the 96 dBl limit, but I'm not willing to give up any power. Besides, in Colorado, I have yet to hear of anyone getting noise tested by a ranger.

Anyways, I was just wondering which you people think is less restrictive? FMF Q2, or Stock/HRC Tip?

well I think the HRC flows pretty good I just took it off and install the Q2 and it flows a lot also but it sounds better and makes less noise and is 2.3 pounds light and looks better
