FMF made sure the Powercore 2 silencer was also durable by using stainless steel on the performance flow end cap and the stinger. FMF makes it easy to perform maintenance on the Powercore 2 silencer by using removable bolts to break it down.
"The FMF Shorty pipe is a good race pipe. If you're looking for a cheap pipe and dont mind it being loud this would be a good pipe for you. Also i would suggest getting it tuned as far as jetting goes with the pipe. You can go without it and be fine but you won't be running nearly any back pressure. Thats the reason why i didnt give it 5 stars. If you jet your bike right you shouldn't have a problem with the "lag" i got up top in the rev range. Again, this is a loud pipe. It isn't insane if you keep fresh packing foam in it but if your not up for replacing it, it will sound like you have a can as a slip on. Loud, Raspy, and obnoxious. With the packing foam it sounds great though!! Wouldnt recommend it for woods riding. Good for MX."

"Great Muffler used with the Gnarly pipe. It made my KTM200xcw a little bit more snappy and made the powerban a little bit more aggressive. Only downfall (to some people) is that this is a loud exhaust. If you maintain it with packing foam month-month it wont be that much louder than stock. If your like me and lazy and only do it annually it does reach a pretty high sound level. If your near a residential area i would reccomend maybe finding a used FMF Q muffler on ebay and saving the shorty for the races."

Good, but not the best

"These grips look cool and feel nice, however, during hard rides these grips especially love to move around on you. The grip patterns to help you hold on are nearly non existent after about a full season of riding at best. They also tend to be a little bit slippery than traditional handgrips in wet stuff. If you're change your grips often and more of a "cruiser" type of rider, go for it. If your a hard trail rider or a racer, id look at something else. P.S. If you really do want these grips definitely get some Scott Grip Glue and some safety wire to hold the grips in place more."

Sizing - Fit true to size?:

"very good price and keeps you from twisting an ankle or burning yourself on something. I've owned this boot for a year and everything is still intact. The only downside is that its a bit cramped in the toe area but i dont notice it at all when i ride."
