What Did I Just Buy on Ebay? Big Gun??

Recommended Posts

Was searching through eBay today and came across this full Big Gun exhaust system that was ending in two minutes. It has a spark arrestor and it would be nice to have a back-up exhaust so I put a quick bid in for $170 just for kicks and it was enough to bump the reserve... so it is now mine.

Looking closely at the pic it looks like it says EVO-R, but the end cap looks different than the red ones that are found on their website. As a matter of fact I cant find any Big Gun exhaust for the 05 CRF450R that looks like this... Did I just buy a $170 paperweight? :thumbsup:

Thanks for the help!

That is the original EVO-R system from Big Gun....You can still get a quiet core and possibly a tapered end-cap that will quiet it down some. I would suggest calling them and tell them you have an old-style Evo-R, especially if you have sound concerns in your area (Which most of us do...)

I have one of the earlier Big Gun exhausts on my '04 and like it. I just have the slip-on and am running the quiet core and FMF's 3 layer packing. It has a throaty sound but it's not obnoxiously loud. I feel the stocker has a little better low end but the BG opens it up from mid to top. If you have any questions or problems Mike Young is a class act. He called me a couple of times when I needed the quite core made for my older style can and he gave me a new spark arrestor screen when the stocker disappeared. I paid over $230 for a display model slip-on through ebay, so you got a good deal.

Are you going to puchase the Big Gun jetting kit or are you just going to try some different jets. Keep me posted because I am also interested if I can get it for the same price.

Already have a JD jetting kit so I could play with that, but it should likely only require a few adjustments with the air screw to get it dialed in. I spoke to Big Gun today and they said the billet end cap and quiet core insert should set me back around 70-80 together and that the pipe already comes with a spark arrestor. Looks like it is a killer deal for a full set-up.
