Ok, I finally am ordering parts for the quad. Had a $350 bill from Rockymountain and I ordered from 2 other sites as well. I really want to get an exhaust for the quad.

QUestions are:
Which of the 2 is louder based on all the options avaliable?
Which one puts out more power?
The HMF comes in a variety of styles (Comp, Performance, QRS I believe), what is the better of those 3 within the HMF?

My style of rideing is everything and anything. Woods, dirt, rocks, some street. I dont do any raceing on a track but would to try that out one day.

:thanks:for any input you guys/gal give.

I personally have a barkers, but I run the Quiet core in mine due to Noise regulations. Still Sounds very good and with the EHS big 3 kit is very affordable. From the other forums on this topic there isnt much of a Difference in the major exhaust companies as far as performance goes. Its all personal preformance really. This is all Just opininions though and I am sure someone else will have more to add.

The question is... which style do you like better? The differences are very minimal, and in my opinion, it comes down to that. Both great exhausts!

I have the HMF sport full exhaust and love it. My friend had a 700xx with the Barkers on it and my HMF was louder than his exhaust. As far as I can tell performance gains between the two are about the same. I raced my friend a few times when he had his XX and it always came down to who had the better start. I've been told on a stock motor the differences are little but once you get into the motor the Barker, Alba, and Sparks are the better choices.

Seems that the barker would be a better choice. I like the look of both of them. Didn't like the comp hmf pipe as much as the other hmf. I'm still up in the air. Buying exhaust for my car was super hard. And this will be the toughest decision I make for the quad.

I have said this before. I have the HMF comp full system and absolutley love it. Loud and responsive.

With that being said if I could do it over again I would buy the Barker's from EHS. Eric is a stand up guy that completely stands behind his products and provides great customer service. Knowning that someone with his knowledge and wiilingnees to help is worth the price for me.

My next exhaust will definitely be from EHS.

so I have the hmf full sport exhaust I have owned it for about 6 months. My buddy just bought the Barkers a few weeks ago. The head pipe on the barkers is quite a bit bigger and is made of a solid piece of pipe and then bent. the HMF is a smaller initial piece wielded to another larger piece of pipe about 4-6inches down the pipe. If i had to do it over again I would buy the barkers, it looks great, it's not as loud as the HMF, but has a great tone. the only bad thing is that my buddy convinced me to buy the HMF a while back and then I gave him the info on the Barkers and he bought that one instead and now gloats about having the better pipe... anyways you can't really go wrong with either but barkers imo is the better pipe (and I own the HMF /facepalm)

Well thanks for the input. My buddy has the barker pipe and I really like it. He dosnt have the quiet core or anything and its pretty loud. If the HMF is louder then Ima go with the Barker. The question is how quiet can the barker get and how quiet can the HMF get? Is the barker that much better to justify the price difference? I found Full HMF for $478 and Barker for $610.

I read its loud but what full exhaust that performs isn't loud. I'm thinking since I like the look of hmf performance full pipe that the barker would be better since I can get a silencer. And at 489 that makes the barker more desirable lol.

Barkers all the way! The barkers has a good tone on the XX too. Best route is get the EHS big three!
