White Brothers E-Series Quiet Insert

Recommended Posts

Anyone used one of these? The local dealer can get me one for $40. Seems about average cost wise but will it help my bike pass noise? Here in CA the limit is 96dB. Went to the local OHV park last week. With FRESH packing (~1HR) and 6 discs my bike tested at 100.8dB. With 3 discs it tested at 98dB. Still too high and it's really choked up at that point. I was thinking about getting the insert to get it down a little more. The catalog claims it'll reduce sound 2-5dB. Does anyone have any info on these quiet inserts?

I don't have any figures on it. But I did get the E-Series quiet core insert. It did reduce the noise especially directionally. It pushes the sound down and back. But overall I didn't think it made a huge difference. I wish I could tell you if you would pass, but all I can say is that it might still be close. I ended up going back to stock. So, if you are interested I will sell you my quiet core insert for much less than $40.

agreed, besides directing the noise i didn't notice a bid differance. Although with mine it needs new packing and i'm running way more than 6 discs. There aren't any public trails anywhere near me so i don't have to worry about pissing anyone off except my neighbors when i ride around my yard...and i hate those neighbors.

Fogive me 'cuz I have yet to see a picture of the insert but... If I still run the discs after installation how can the insert affect the directionality of the sound? Won't the gaps in the discs be the main factor in the direction of the sound waves?

Also I would be interested in buying it from you. I'll PM you.

Believe me I tried. The way it is designed there is no way you can put it on over any plates. It replaces all plates and end cap. It bolts directly on to the muffler.

depending on how many you run it will fit under the diffuser disks. the order that i have right now is muffler - quiet insert - disks (more than 12) end plate. As you can see from the link it looks like a diffuser disk but directs the sound down. If this is the only thing you are running then you won't pass a spark arrestor test...atleast i didn't. I'm guessing with 8-12 disks you could run this inside the disks or as the first disk bolted on.

I hope that makes sense.

The quiet core insert for my 2000 WR400 made very little difference, perhaps 1 db. Using the optional white bros 360° shroud which goes over the outside of the disks helps direct the sound away from the side of the bike, where the db meter will be. This will help for perhaps another 1db. All in all on my bike, using the e-series tapered head pipe and a recently re-stuffed muffler, running 12 disks and the 360° shroud, got me down to 97db. Removing disks made very little sound difference, but made the bike run very crappy. For events that I need to be tested, I unfortunately had to revert to a stuck muffler with a 1½" insert. The front of the muffler had to be slightly modified to accept the White Bros tapered head pipe, but it is the only way I could get legal and have a bit of power. The White Bros tapered head pipe is much better than a stock head pipe. When I do not have to be tested, I use the White Bros stock E-series muffler with the quiet core insert and 12 disks and the 360° shroud. It is pretty easy to switch out the mufflers for different events depending on the sound requirements, and I do not do any carb modifications when I change mufflers. The power these bikes make with the White Bros system is pretty impressive, and likewise can be pretty discouraging when the stock system is used. There is a company here in Phoenix called Quiet is Cool that makes some quality pipe inserts for a variety of bikes. They can be reached at www.quietiscool.com. (623-695-2013) If anybody knows of a good aftermarket system that makes great power and is 94/95db, let me know! Hope this helps you out. :thumbsup:

Well, I got the insert. Thanks Bentru for the offer but apparently my dealer is faster than even they thought. I am NOT happy with the quality of construction. It's just a crappy looking as you all indicated. I have yet to have it sound tested. Next week I think. How do you all run 12 discs? With 6 discs (no core insert) I was testing at 100.8 dB with absolutly fresh packing (on a YZ). I cut it down to 3 discs and got 98 dB but there's no way I wanna run the bike like that. I'm sure the stock exhaust will flow more than those damn 3 discs will.

Thanks for the quietiscool link. After seeing what I got for my $40 I've been thinking about making my own inset. I just haven't figured out where to get a good perforated tube....

Quiet is Cool can also help you out with the perforated internal muffler insert.

97db is the very best I was able to get out of my White Bros muffler assembly and that is using the quiet core insert. Unfortunately, I reverted back to the stock muffler to get it quiet when needed. See my previous post.

      Selling an FMF Power Core 4 exhaust system off my 450FX. Exhaust has 80 hours and is 100% functional. This will also fit the 14-15 YZ450F and 16-18 Wr450F. If needed I can also include new muffler packing although it does not need it.

      I have a 2008 YZ450F with a stock header pipe and Pro Circuit T-4 Slip-On Exhaust. I'm 99% sure the slip on is shot because its loud as hell and when I take it off and shake it it rattles. I would repack it but the screws are all stripped ect.
      Anyways I've gone over the carb multiple times and I've got it running pretty well. The only issue I have with the bike is that it sputters and pops around 1/2 throttle when I hold it there. When I give it full throttle from any RPM it runs great or when I give it about 3/4 throttle it spins up like a top to redline.
      Initially the popping and sputtering was way worse I made the situation better by moving the pilot jet up in a few sizes from a 45 (stock) to a 62. The issue has gotten way better since then but I'm not super sure what to do from here. Should I keep moving my pilot jet up in size because that's a pretty large jump right? I tried changing my needle clip position but that didn't help much if anything it just made starting it worse and little to no impact on the ride.
      Any input on this would be helpful. I don't want to buy other slip on. Also as for the rest of the carb I'm very sure everything else in it is what it needs to be at. I've replaced all the gaskets and O-rings cleaned all the jets, valve holes ect. fixed the accelerator pump timing. I just thinks its strange that my pilot jet size is going so far from the stock 45, but all symptoms point to the bike running lean.

      Hi I was wondering if y’all have been using a 450 on your YZ250F?

      Excel Takasago 17x3 front and 17x5 rear supermoto wheels with Metzler M3 tires in very lightly used condition. Less than 200 miles total on the setup. Warp 9 spokes. Rear has a Talon hub with 45T Sunstar steel sprocket and OEM rear disc, and front has a polished OEM Yamaha WR450F hub (for the stock speedometer), with a Motomaster 320mm disc. Included is a DID gold o-ring chain, 14T front sprocket, and front brake caliper adapter for a truly turn key setup. Everything is in excellent condition, not a single scratch on these wheels. Came off my '11 WR450F, but will fit many different Yamahas with 20mm front and 22mm rear axles. Asking $1400 plus shipping.
      **Will be driving up near Atlanta, then to northern Louisiana, OKC, and down through Dallas and Houston, TX soon -- can meet or deliver if in the area (Aug 31-Sep 9)**
