Over opinionated bigots like you are the reason nobody wants to post on forums anymore. Who should be embarrassed? Grow up.

LOL. I can understand why you are insecure about posting.

 

It's called OMIF syndrome. Open mouth insert foot.

Well I read this whole thing from the beginning.You must all know by now I'm against cans due to the noise levels.Everybody wants the quiet,light weight can that doesn't exist.I applaud the effort being made but can't help but believe that if BRP and all the aftermarket companies making exhausts haven't figured it out with all their resources,I doubt you can.With the weight companies are trying to shed from their sleds in the forefront,I'm sure they tried with the suitcase a few times.

Listen guys, I don't want to be the free speech police, but I don't want to see this thread be locked because of some petty argument that is aside from the actual point. If you feel like bashing each other and discussing the pitfalls of running aftermarket exhausts on your sleds, please take it to PMs and do it that way. I'm willing to bet the same people in this thread commenting on legalities go 5mph over on their way to work. Guess what? You're breaking the law. It's nothing significant and in the end doesn't affect anyone else, but it's still illegal. Same scenario here if you are running an aftermarket can that has been modified to be within a couple dB of stock or even at stock levels.

 

Yoop and I have a good thing going and I am hoping the result of this will be people WITH cans quieting them down a bit. No matter what, there are going to be people who don't care about the landowners perspective and are going to run something aftermarket regardless. This thread isn't for them because they would see the thread title and skip right over it. This thread is for the performance minded enthusiast with common sense and consideration for others. Don't mess it up for them.

If you did less talking/typing and more experimenting and posting the results, poeple wouldn't be bugging you on here so much!  As someone else said, If Doo could make their cans as quiet as they are but lighter, don't you think they would?   Lots of smart people before you have tried. Not say ing you may not be able to figure it out but why not just go do it and let us know when you're successful?  Oh, and "Just 2 Db more than stock"  ISN'T a quieter lighter can !  There's lots of them out there. :dry_old:   Everyone running a can says its only a couple Db louder than stock. ya right, we HEAR ya.

Freestylin,

Would the "insert" that you mentioned be removable/adjustable?

 

Do most canners in the back country use a fuel caddy?

Do they remove it and keep it somewhere for later when they need it?

Just to state my position on cans I am totally against them for trail sleds or anyone that runs near residential areas.  I agree that noise hurts the sport and I am totally on board with you there.  If I was going to trail ride my sled or ride anywhere near civilization I would find a stock suit case.  I don't own a sled that can ride the trails though, and I ride so far back in the boonies that there is no one within 15 - 20 miles in any direction.  If you drew a square from Lanse to Big Bay, down to Marquette, over to Michigamme and back up to Lanse I am just north of middle in that square.  It truly is the middle of nowhere.  There's not a plowed road within hundreds of square miles.  The only people that can get to where I ride is other sledders.  I don't need to quiet my sled down, I just wanted to take part in this experiment since I had the resources to do so and maybe offer up some solutions for those who are going to run a can no matter what. 

 

Sound is about the only way we can find each other if we get separated and that happens often.  Even a loud sled is hard to hear where I ride, the terrain is very rugged and hilly, not little hills either more like small mountains. Once someone disappears into the hills they can be very hard to find.  This is big country and you're going to be in serious trouble if you get lost.  There's no cell service and you aren't walking out. 

 

As far as landowners I am one.  I have 20 acres at my camp and trail 5 to Big Bay is within a mile from there.  If the DNR needed to reroute and use my land I would give them permission no problem. 

 

Maybe a kind moderator could delete all the bickering in this thread.  There is something to be learned here whether this works or not.

Anyone who can figure out how to make a can quieter is a great idea eventually when our older sleds need replacement pipes because there rusted out or broken and skidoo doesn't have them we will have to get them some where
