Has anyone tried a Vortip or other insert in your WR426? I like the power of the bike uncorked, but my neighbors don't like me. Any noise level specs./power increases/recommendations? Thanks!

FMF has a new version of their power core IV S/A that will be available in about a week. It's designated the "Q" (for quiet) and is claimed to provide the same charactaristics (better bottom/mid, slight loss on top) as the original. I don't know if it will be quieter than the stock WR pipe, but is supposed to be quite a bit easier on the ears than the YZ. It may be worth looking into.

I am thinking of trying the Baja Designs insert. I ve heard good things about them as far as no power loss, easy on the ears, etc. Right now, its not so important to me. I have always loved FMF products as well, but not their prices!
I wonder where your riding, thats so close to your neighbors? Whenever I'm just taking the bike for a spin around the neighborhood, I put the baffle back on, so as not to freak anybody out. Cant understand why they never look at Harleys the same way......

WR Exhaust noise

Thanks for the input, I'm still hoping to hear from sombody who is using a Baja or other insert. If I need to, i'll consider a complete rear half system, but I'd like to tone down the stock (open) pipe. I don't ride around much in the yard, but the neighbors have a horse... Besides, it's fun to chase the wife and kids around. ( TTR125L, BW 80, 4 acres ). Anybody else?
