FmF fatty or gnarly

Recommended Posts

I finally bent the neck of my pipe on my 2017 300xc. I came down to hard on the pipe during a mishap crossing tree.

 

I'm torn between the fatty and the gnarly. I ride a mix of slow technical single track and faster desert riding. I am leaning toward the fatty but I like that the gnarly has heavier guage steel.

 

What pipes are you all running and why?

my gnarly signs off well below where I would normally shift a 2 smoker...

I'm fine with it but its sure different...

bottom grunt outta the 300 with a gnarly reminds me of my yz490...

I ride almost all tight single track...

I have the Pro Circuit Platinum. Its very similar to the FMF Fatty, but a bit more aggressive on the bottom and still revs out well.
I'm quite happy with it for the desert southwest riding I do.
I'm also running it with a RK Tek head and I can running it a gear higher everywhere if I want or I can drop a gear and lite it up.

The Gnarly was never a good fit for me and I agree with what you're saying...

If your riding style doesn't favor revving the bike out....get the gnarly.   I like to short shift...ride in the lower RPMs, the gnarly is great for me.  Gives me enough grunt whenever I need it down low.  Other people who have ridden my set up hate it.  Once you get up top...it signs off sooner.

I have the Gnarley,the fatty and the DEP Enduro Armored which is thicker than the fatty with equal gains across the board and maybe a hair more down low.I switch back and forth from the fatty to the DEP and never use the Gnarley.If I was going to own just one it would be the DEP.

I own both for my 2003 300 and gotta agree with all the other comments. 

The Gnarly signs off early with little low end gain. It did work well on the 380 however...
