20 posts in this topic

Hi guys.

i 've got a WR 450f 08 and i will like to change the stock exhaust with a new fmf exhaust. I'm wondering which is the most powerfull and the louder combination for my bike using an FMF.

FMF Factory 4.1 or Powercore

Complete Exhaust System or Slip on

with MegaBomb or Powerbomb.

Thanks

I just ordered the Dr. D exhaust thru qualitysmart.com. Getting the Style 4. This comes with the header pipe, also got the quiet core insert. All for under $450.00. FMF with the megabomb will be over $500.00.

I'm looking to also order a Dr D , how'd you get it for $450 from qualitysmart.com? It looks to be $497 with quiet insert.

But which one you think will be louder?

Are you in the United States? And if so, are you serious?

It was $50 off till Jan 31. The funny thing is it was delivered straight from Dubach Racing to my house, got it in 3 days.

Went on easy, sounds real nice and seems snappier. I need to to put the quiet insert in to see how it sounds. I's a little loud without.

Sounds like you should hold off on the pipe. Maybe get some sick graphics!

Or some gnarley tires!

Most states have noise limits. Montana's is now 96 decibels. There checking and fining poeple. Loud pipes dont make it faster. Just pisses people off and gets areas closed to motorized. I got the Dr'D with the quite core on my 07. Great sounds,Passed there tests and runs awsome.

Loud pipes are nothing more than emotional horsepower. .. Unless you are in the upper echelon of MX riding where you need to bang out of a berm into an immediate 75ft triple there is no need for anything that flows enough to produce more than 98db... just my .02 cents.

Noise shuts down riding areas... I race in A level offroad classes and I have never had a problem winning with anything that blows more than 98db.. and if I don't place well it surely is not because of my exhaust system:bonk:

You want to be louder? What are you, a teenager? Get the quiet insert. Without it, that pipe is disturbingly loud, even to the rider.

I bought the full system a couple years ago. I cannot tell the difference with the powerbomb header on. Only pro riders will notice the .5 lbs and .5 hp difference. Even weekend racers (like me) can't tell the difference.

Just get the pipe and save money on the header. I've got a powerbomb headere that's all smashed up sitting in my garage. Its much, much softer metal than the stock header and when you fall, it will get dented easier. It sticks out just a little past the radiator and is more exposed when you drop the bike on its right side. The stock header is in tighter and will not get abused.

Also, mid to upper is great on the FMF pipes. But I have ridden other bikes with better low end than the FMF Factory 4. They seem to have a DrD pipe.

Great advice here, thanks. Just bought the FMF Factory new on flea-bay for $200 with SA. I'll add a quiet core...:)

Thanks guys for the help. I 've bought the factory 4.1 slip on. Fits nice on the stock header. And yeah its loud. But sounds better. I will get and the quiet insert i think. :)

I have install the GYT-R AIS remove kit before. (jet needle 4th position, pilot jet 50, main jet 175, main air jet 110, leak jet)

Do i need to rejet the carb in addiction?

Thanks.

I added the same pipe...had to open the fuel screw another 1/2 turn to eliminate bog. Fuel screw is 1 1/4 turns out now. I'm at 6,000 feet elevation though, so my adjustments may not apply to you.
