Question Silencers

Do they help much or do they just make the sled louder? Are they worth the price?

Was looking at this description for my sled: # Bender lite-weight Power Pack Silencers: $239.95
Available for SX 600 / SX 700 / VMax 4.
Reduces weight by 7 lbs, and adds 2-3 HP to the top-end RPM along with as much as 9 HP midrange RPMs on the 700.

Pfft.. Power from a can? I dont really think that adds any power, just noise. For the price? Not unless you want the noise. But, those aftermarket cans are tons lighter than some of the stockers! So it can help with weight.

Id wait and see what others opinions are too, but i think most people will agree that cans dont really add any power. Id possibly try and get a used one, i cant see myself paying over 200 for a can.

Yea, those gains didn't really sound impressive to me for the price. Just didn't know if anyone's experience with them said otherwise. If all I'm getting is noise then forget it.

Mostly just for weight i guess, but for the price of a new can, you can usually find a whole used aftermarket exhaust, or atleast a pipe. Well most for polaris, i dont see too many other pipes around for yamahas, or really doos or cat, but they are around, just dont see as many.

i can get pipes for a 2000 sx 600!! 18 hp and 15 lbs lost.

a new silencer setup can easily add some power depending on what your doing. its just like a car, to big of stinger pipe going to the can and to open of a can and you loose some bottom end and drivability of the pipe.
to small of a stinger pipe or can and you make the pipes to hot and basically after 600 feet need to shut down or blow up.

Save your money on the can, buy a monster sticker...... adds more horse. I suppose Madcow has a good idea also.

whos pipes are you running? time to find out if you can do the internal stinger mod!! pretty easy for a welder, whatever size stinger pipe you have coming out of the pipe, go up a 1/4" in diameter and put a piece inside the pipe a good 8", that will quiet it down some, some pipes it makes them stealth quiet, others it really doesnt change much noise.

CPI pipes on it right now. I have those and a set of UBR twins. Haven't tried the UBR, but the CPI are noisy, sounds like a pissed off chainsaw coming. I'll get some measurements on a better day. It's too cold and snowing right now. I plan on sitting right here in RV and soaking up TV for today ......

I have the SLP can.
They claim 2 ponies and I suppose it's possible.
The real gain though is in dropping 14 lbs.
THAT was why I bought it.

when i made the mistake of using slp pipes on the xcr there can was defected, when i took the can off and used individual silencers i gained 8 grams in the primary!!!

on the homemade pipes for lil monster going from a polaris can to individual silencers i gained 200 rpm pretty easy and then it would creep in rpms the more you held it. i also had to go up 3 sizes on the mains.

^^ That's what Harry needs to do. Ditch the can and put stingers on the ends of the pipes. The RXL triple pipes just have stingers welded to them and you cannot beat the sound. Three pings popping out of the belly pan just gives me wood lol.

plus for harry it would be an easy 15 lbs lost.

I fought with slp over 4 years on them pipes, the only way they would take them back was if i took the sled to a dealer and had the dealer verify the water temp sendor, timing, tps sending unit,
then i had to buy there clutch kit, after that then they would take them back to the shop and check them out but no make for sure that they would exchange them.

I basically told dustin to pack sand, cut them apart made the triple silencers, altered the pipes some and bam, went from 10-58's in the primary to 10-66's and the rpms came up as well.

your pipes have stingers on them, I can get the silencers for you. I like the small steel body from aaen myself. they are not very spendy at all. like 40 bucks each, a couple feet of tubing, one U bend several hours of welding and cutting and its done.

Sweet! I'll come closer to you if the snow is deeper. We actually need to start planning a weekend ride in Gaylord so the canuck can come play. If it's gonna be a trail ride I may bring Shane for a weekend. He'd love riding with a group of guys lol. Rubi's sister has a place, how about it Rubi can we invade your sisters house for a weekend?
