Maybe, but where are you going to ride, when sleds become illigal because of complaints?

I was just kidding. I wouldn't ride a sled with really loud exhaust. Would bother me too much to ride it. On a strip fine for the quick racing but no way on the trails.

Please do not make your sled louder unless you live in a remote area. Many people live on the properties they let us ride through. Also many people live near the trails or use some of the wilderness areas. If you piss them off, we can (and do) lose trails. I was in the U.P. once and some yahoo had a sled that was so loud we could hear him for miles. It was obnoxious, and ruins the quality of life for those who live there.

I want to ride every day, all day, as fast as I can.

hey if he wanted to ride a loud sled, let him. he was asking questions about what to do and how, not for our approval.

You're right, he wasn't asking for our approval. However, when someone elses actions can have a negative impact on what I'm allowed/able to do, I believe that person should be educated about why what they are doing causes a problem.

I realize he lives in Maine and I am not familiar with the laws there, but in Ontario it is against the law to modify the exhaust system on your snowmobile. When people go ahead and do it anyway it just gives the non-sledding public more ammunition against us and the sport as a whole.

I am not saying he can't do that. If he wants to fine but seeing as I don't want that and would prefer there were less sleds that loud I will take it upon myself to simply not share my knowledge. Thats all there is.

Have you tried Black Magic, or D&D not sure if they make performance parts for your cougar. But if anyone does they do.

I understand the noise issue the guys are talking about but, I ride where the only other people are the guys on the other mod sleds who came with me.
