Is it worth the 125 clams to have this exhaust? Is the sound any different when mounted on a 2000 250exc??

Thanks

The weight savings alone is worth it!

My spodey self can't tell the difference in performance, but the look (almost completely hidden behind the # plate) and the weight savings make it worth it.
If you can afford an extra $125 go for it !

First make sure they have one. I waited 3 months for the FMF pipe for my 97 360sx and three months after that I'm still waiting for the TC2. Aparently it has now been made and shipped from the states but if I'd known I was going to be waiting this long I wouldn't have bothered. I'm seriously unimpressed with the boys at FMF and would only buy another one of their products if it was sitting on the shelf at the shop I was buying it from. And even then I'd agonise over it.

I have one on my Gas Gas EC300 and it works really well. FMF has excellent quality products. Buy it!

I put a TCII on my SX. It's a great spark arrestor, but I wish someone made a muffler (besides KTM) that would get the noise under 94 dB. Anyone want to unload a MXC/EXC muffler for a '98 KTM out there?

I have one that I'm looking to sell. It is off of a '98 200 MXC.

So I guess I have to be different...It did drop weight, but that's it. The sound and power feel exactly the same...I love that it's hidden behind the number plate, but I was hoping for deeper sound and more throttle response...

I have the stock spark arrester/silencer from my '98 KTM 300 EXC that I'll sell for
$50 + ship.
