if you hold out a little longer you can get a better pipe like a curtis sparks or trinity racing they should both be out the end of feb ive just never been impressed with hmf and every pipe gives a differant power curve so hang on a little longer gary ps go with the full sys with a ss head pipe the ti ones tend to blow out due to how thin the piping is
There's only so much technology that can go into an exhaust, believe it or not. There is no huge difference between different manufacturers, they're all designed pretty much the same.
I've tried an HMF on a Raptor along with a Trinity, LRD and Sparks (on the same bike) and although we didnt dyno them, the results were all pretty much the same. If there was a difference, it was so minimal that you couldn't tell.
Boy, you are really splitting hairs there freak. Most of us weekend warriors won't care about a .5 difference in horsepower. I certainly wouldn't say that there is ANYTHING amatuerish about an HMF pipe. They appear very well made to me. Apparently a lot of people like them too. Bill Ballance and Mike Penland both run HMF. Readers of QUAD magazine voted HMF as their favorite pipe as well.
Do you think this is because they think HMF is the best or is it that HMF paid the most for them to use on their bikes?? Celebrity backing, especially in racing, really doesn't mean much at all. If Campbell's Soup gave each of them $1,000,000 to use one of their soup cans as a muffler I bet they BOTH would do it.
