Would an fmf shorty be ban from anywhere?
Shorty's are loud, I know Midway doesn't ban any specific silencer, but the management has expressed concern with some loud bikes in the past.
I was worried about the spark arrester...I guess it has one?
No it doesn't, not an issue where I ride. Noise is the issue I hear the most complaints about w/ the shorty.
They do not come with spark arrestors. Not sure what the dB is on them, I imagine it has to be ~94 (think thats the legal limit) from the factory. I have one on my 125, and its not really all that loud. Doesn't even compare to any aftermarket pipe on a 4 stroke. So I really wouldn't be worried about it.
Shortys make you loose bottom end torque!!!
They actually enhance throttle response at the expense of top end and overrev.
Where did you hear this? I is my understanding that shorter silencers are better for bottom end, and longer is better for top end.
I know I can go to the track with a shorty, but can I go to like a park with trails?
