The Infamous Exhaust Conundrum...

Hey everybody, I know I am running the risk of sounding redundant, but I am stuck with a tough decision here. I have read the posts and attacked the postman, but would really like some direct input from my brothers and sisters in arms. I have narrowed my selection down to 3 that I feel will suit my purposes and are within my price range.

And in no particular order...

1) HMF 2010 Comp Series

2) Two Brothers Racing M-7 V.A.L.E.™ Stainless Steel Slip-On Race Exhaust System

3) FMF Q4 S/A

Any input will be greatly appreciated. Please don't just tell me which one you prefer/own/want etc., but please give me a rational justification and/or some personal experience to help me decide which on to go with. Thanks!!

1... I'm between the Comp or regular Performance myself...

I say, don't go with a slip-on. It does nothing for you. FMF is a good brand, but have found them too expensive. HMF have won championships and defeated Baja. Just remember with a full system, you'll need a programmer.

i went with the HMF performace series. you will want a programmer even with a slipon, which is still better than the stock muffler. all you have to do is compare the size of the stock mufflers exhaust outlet to the size of the stock header and you'll see why, not to mention all the baffles.

i went with an all-black hmf performace series because i like the clean look it has compared to the others that have these brightly colored labels on them. obviously, thats a personal preference. my buddy has it on his 450, and i love the sound of his as well.

two brothers was my second choice, but i wasn't a fan of the star trek styled canister.

the comp series is nice because it comes with the different inserts that are very easy to swap out depening on how quiet or open you want to run it. you can get the quiet core for the hmf perf. series if you need to run quiet as well, and the color customization is really nice. i have always heard great things about hmf, and have never been disappointed by them regardless of what machines i have heard or seen them on.

At this moment I'm using the Motorworks SR4 which is real nice, had the 2Bros but kind of loud. Am looking for a pipe builder in NC so I can reinstall my Supertrapp. The Barker is also real nice.

Supertrapp SL, Pro Design Filter, PCIII, PRM Baja Front Bumper, PRM 6 Pack Grab Bar, Ricochet A-Arm guards, 23" Front ITP Pro Series, Kenda Kutters XC on DWT Red Labels, Motion Pro Twist Throttle,Maier Plastics, Elkas Front Shocks (Preload)

HMF Performance (slip-on) is the one, Doback programmer and open air box. Dropped to the 13 tooth counter and this quad is like night and day. FLIES. I was going with a cam but I am not sure I need it now.

just remember if you ever look at hp gains that the one that makes the most hp isnt always the best you have to look at were you ride at (rpm) the mojority of the time i found that hmf makes a well rounded hp curve that the average rider will take advantage of im not sure of the 700xx specificaly but compared on a z400 the hmf was by far the best well rounded pipe and ther is very mixed reviews on full systems compared to slipons. im not a firm beliver on full systems alot of extra money for what i belive dosent add up to a pot to piss in ( just my opinion)
