what is the quietest muffler

10 posts in this topic

I want a quiet muffler for my 04 wr450. when i bought it it came with a fmf factory 4 with the quiet insert, but i would like it a little quieter under 94 decibles. You guys have any ideas, i don't have the stock one. there is a ride this year that i want to go on but i need to be under 94 decibles. I tried to search first but couldn't come up with anything.

Thanks in advance......Todd

The 05-06 stock muffler is whisper quiet. There is a huge performance penalty though especialy with the stock pea shooter baffle set up.

I've heard great things about the Q4. Quieter than a Q2 and more performance is the general consensus. Same price too I believe.

The quietest thing you can get is the stock muffler with the insert removed. It will register at about 93db. I know this for a fact.

If you want to open it up a little more, add the PMB insert. You will then blow a 95.5b-96b, which is still acceptable in many places.

Power will be down a little, but you'll be able to twist the throlle more to compensate. no problem.

I am looking for the quietest aftermarket muffler, not stock. is the FMF q2 the best?

The q2 is very quiet and it has a nice throaty sound. I have it on my KLR and it sounds great. Im thinking of getting one form my XR. If you want quiet I think the Q2 is what you are looking for.
