Going to get rid of the stock pipe on my 2010 690. Would you guys go with the fmf Q4 or the fmf powercore 4? Benefits or drawbacks of either? Any advice is welcome, thank you in advance.

My friend has the powercore I have the Q4. No noticeable power difference. Q4 is quieter some. My other friend has the akro muffler. I wish I could afford it. Nice tone.

Sent from outside my mind.

I have the Powercore 4 and don't have any problems or complaints with it. It's not really that loud like some people say. The Q4 is just a bit quieter. The powercore has a nicebark when you open up the throttle. At cruise it's easy on the ears. Best bang for the buck I think. I didn't feel like dropping crazy cash on a muffler like some do.

Bluhduh Finally...

A day of maintenance and "fixing" a small electrical problem - Then another 2 hours fixing my "fix". All good now, but seriously, do others have this syndrome (this is not the first time ).
All good now, and way cheaper than taking it in.

Ride On!

Good for you. I don't have that issue. My syndrome is every trip to home depot or auto zone results in 3 follow up trips. Argh.
