Hello there and good morning.
This past weekend, I joined the ranks of DRZ owners. I picked up a 2002 400E so that I can go dirtbiking with my son. I've had a street bike (Volusia 800 at present) for a while, but this is a new foray to myself. I've been lurking on this site and really appreciate all the viewpoints.
I checked out the FAQ's, but I couldn't;t find a definitive answer to this question. This probably sounds like a strange questions.
The bike I bought has an FMF Powercore 4 pipe on it that is a lot louder than I'm really excited about. I'd like to get the bike a little quieter. The power aspect is not a big deal at present as my main goal is to ride with my 9 yr old son. I read some of the posts about repacking or adding a quiet core insert. With this really hep to lower the sound?
Or would I be better off to find someone who has a stock pipe they would like to get rid of? If I find a stock pipe, which models are interchangeable? Can the 400S pipes go on the 400E.
Hope I'm not creating a repeat of an old refrain here. Seems like my problem is the opposite of most people's questions. Power is not the big deal as much as quiet.
