    I bought a 950 that already had the Q4's on them. I think the LV EVOII are much better quality- with fit & finish & performance comparable to Akro. I've run LV for several years on two different bikes, no issues, and they are still in great shape. FMF is a good product with out doubt, and if you want a FS approved spark arrestor- they Q4 has the screens, LV doesnt. If the price on the FMF were $100 less- I would lean in that direction, but at equal price the decision would lean towards LV based on the quality standard alone. Performance and Sound are similar.

    yeah, this discussion is specifically about the LV One vs FMF Q4 as spark arrestor is absolutely a requirement for where I ride.. fit is important, but style much less.. with reports about fitment issues with the LV, FMF Q4 seems the best choice for a light weight, low tech, spark arrested exhaust at less then $300 per muffler.. now who wants to split a set?
