been tryin to decide, barkers with quiet core or FMF power bomb with Q4/powercore4. Like the look of the black an red barkers and the performance gains but am worried about being too loud for my area of riding. Like the quietness of the q4 but concerned it's going to be too quiet. Thanks for any info to help me make my decision.

Out of these 2 I would go with the Barkers. If you ever plan on going into the motor the better exhaust is going to payoff in the long run. I have an HMF exhaust and wish I had the option of a Barkers or Sparks when I bought my system.

the barker is a little more free flowing than the fmf, which is louder too,but right now where i ride loudness isnt an issue i love the sound of the barker without quiet core

I went with FMF as I was afraid that the Barkers would be too loud for me. But thought that the Q4 would be to quiet. I like the sound of my powercore. Cant wait to install the powerbomb header and everything tuesday.

I was scared the barkers would still be loud with the quiet core but bought it anyway. It is sorta loud but not obnoxious and glad I went with the Barkers.

You'll love the added power a header produces. I've got the powerbomb & Powercore, Awesome sounding combo.

What makes the Barkers better for a built motor than the FMF?

Barker!
I absolutely love the sound of the Tim Barker pipe! Like i've said before both pipes are awesome! It's personal preference really.

I think it basically comes down to preference also. Basically everyone who has the Barkers absolutely loves it and everyone who has the FMF loves it. Its kinda like the dude at Best buy told me when I was looking at TV's, "The one you love the most in the store, is the the one that you will love in your living room" So if you like the looks of the barker better then get it. Someone is always looking for a deal as well so if you decide you dont like what you get, sell it and get something else.

If I got to do it all over again and had more choices when I got my exhaust... I would definitely have a Sparks :tup:

:beat: Everyone has their own opinions but the Barkers and Sparks are on every big build for a reason.
