HMF or Barker

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.

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.
