Straight pipes? Come on-why make it any louder than it needs to be. The Bills pipe on my 450R may be loud, but its there for reasons OTHER than to be a noisemaker. Its no wonder places to ride are gettin few and far between- IDIOTS. If i see anyone with a straight pipe where I ride, theyre gonna get their faces roosted off. Grow up- this is why our favorite riding places get booby trapped, blocked, and otherwise ruined. And butthead- go find a pair of SCREAMIN EAGLES and take a long ride off a short pier. PEACE

ok your al talking about streight pipes. what are u people meaning? a streight pipe coming off header or a pipe with a a streight coar?

and for hitting deer i can go from 60-0 in about 4 secs on my 400ex.

loud pipes usualy = more top end and less bottom end power. usualy the louder the pipe the more air the is flowing throught it which if it flows alot it is top end pipe.

Straight pipes on an atv? Proabably not the greatest idea. Less backpressure, due to a considerably increased rate of airflow, means that your exhaust valves will probably wear out quickly. Performance gain? Probably only slightly noticeable throughout the shifts. Is it worth is? You make that call. Is it really worth ruining your engine for the slight performance gain? Ask yourself.

well tell me this. if running streight pipes is going to cause trouble than running no muffler would to even more easier. i did it for 9 months and i beat the quad. problums? nope. none caused by muffler

"I'll bet it will really fly when you get the training wheels off too." as said by scootergptx

i took those stock wheels off and tru on some magnums with mudlites and that baby flys. thanks for the tip.

It's nice to know there are people like you who show up 12 years later and bump old threads like this with such intelligent comments. I'm looking forward to more of your brilliant contributions in the coming years.
