Long or short silencer???

Recommended Posts

Can somebody please tell me the difference between a long and short silencer? How will this affect the performance of the bike?

The long silencer also helps quiet the bike down and really broadens the powerband and does aid the top end more than the low end performance. The short silencers do the opposite. It makes it kinda snappy with good low end snap.

The reason why they put longer silencers on the exc/xcw is becouse if the sound. The longer silencers will be soo much quiter then the shorther for offroad.

shorter alows the air to move more quickly threw the pipe producing more low end...longer pipe , idk how to say it..but slows down the air ..much like a powervalve..it does something to the exhaust but i cant think of the word..lol but it makes more topend
