It looks amazing!  Of course it would look better covered in mud or sand parked by the side of your favorite trail.  :-D
Perhaps I have a dirt bike addiction?

I think he means he's going to treat it like we all treat rental cars.  He better not sell it.  I'm not above driving or flying to Oregon to have an intervention.   :-D

What happened to the FMF blue Titanium 2.1 silencer for it? I'm liking my custom fit one on my KX500

I figured that was the case :-D I noticed that the pipe diameter was a few mm smaller than the KX500 but I'm not sure that it affected my power delivery. Maybe even helped low end...

A smaller diameter will change your output for sure.
Shortening it, which mine will be over stock, will also increase bottom end at the expense of some top end.
Since this engine is a prototype in many respects, I wanted to keep the exhaust as close to stock as possible, without sacrificing over all aesthetics..
Once I get the new muffler on it and jet it, I should achieve more power everywhere...
Sean Colliers last engine we built for him definitely achieved that goal.
But I wanted this one to be even better.... So I pushed things  :-o
Might have gone too far but time will tell   :-D
