I know some of you are going to give me a ration over this,but so be it.

I've been a member of a snowmobile club for years,read the arcticles in various mags,read the posts on various forums,and shoot the bull with various people,some of them being officers in my respective states association.

Among other things,pipes are one the reasons our sport is becoming less and less popular among the general public,especailly the landowners whose lawns and back fields we have permission to ride thru,until of course that guy with the loud pipes roars thru at full throttle. Then that's the end of that established trail.

It's getting harder and harder every year to get permission from landowners who previously let us use their property. Some of it due to other reasons but more often then not it's because of the noise. A two stroke engine is plenty loud enough stock,and as far as I'm concerned plenty fast enough in the same condition.

Why ruin this fun winter sport for everyone else? Think about the other guy once in a while. Go ahead. Bring it on. I can take it because I'm right.

I agree 100% with Bob,
I see arctic cat guy is 16, and at that age loud was fun.
But you have to remember with sledding we are on someone elses land 99.9999% of the time.
This day and age there are so many people looking to ban anything they don't like. Sledders are already fighting for our rights and we don't need more enemies.
That's what loud pipes will do, make enemies.
Be sensible and respect landowners and the "non-sledders".
We need all the help we can get.
Work with us, not against us!

i am on my land 99% of the time....or at the bottom of a coulee where the nearest house is mine about a mile away....the only trail i ride on is right along a highway, the ppl that live along it are used to loud noises, w/ semis and pickups w/ loud pipes goin by, uh oh...nore more ppl can drive down the road anymore...

I dont want this post to be a big thing about noise polution and guys w/ pipes ruining our sport. just give me ideas about what u think is better.

Think Snow...hell...mi

If you want just a silencer the link below is for MBRP. They have a silencer that will drop 10lbs off your stock silencer.
I bought the trail version for my 800, not much louder than stock. But it dropped 8lbs and has a deeper rumble. If you want loud and infact do ride mainly on your own land or away from any houses the standard one is supposed to roar.

Open pipe may not optimize your power anyway. Too little restriction in the exhaust can have a negative power result. While I agree mostly with BobQ I have aftermarket pipes on my sleds. they are more loud than stock but certainly not as bad as some of the pro racers and hill climber sleds that are even too loud for me. Fun to watch and listen from a distance but I'll keep my aftermarket pipes on. Just ride responsibly until you hit the trail head then pin it!!
