The Barker with the quiet core will be alot less than 99 dbs , I think Roadkill got tested and was about 93 dbs.. Not quite the British 92dbs , we have to have but very close.
Barkers without "QC" is about 100dbs,ish. You could get below 99 dbs with just the spark arrester and not running the full QC.

youll have to use the quiet core in race that will bring it down to 96decibels with new packing witout qc and new packing it is 103 decibels if you use qc you might need to adjust the fuel controller a little also

It was measured less with the "QC" by a Park Ranger in California, this is the most strictess I have know besides the UK.

Basically it's about 100-105db with brand new packing. Like Boost said. It gets louder everytime you ride it. Mine has about 30 hours on it and it will make your ears ring! :lol:

It is because the packing gets forced all to the end. At least that is what Valk found out anyways. He's on his 3rd packing I think

Actually, I got tested by a FS ranger and tested at 92db with the QC. Between running with and without the QC, you'll need to adjust your EFI controller by .5 in green, yellow and red mode.

Settings...
Without QC
Green = 3.5
Yellow = 3.5
Red = 3

With QC
Green = 3
Yellow = 3
Red = 2.5

Just because the original packing is in there doesn't mean that it isn't all smashed to one end. Have you taken apart and looked at it. Once it gets way louder it is usually all smashed to the end
