I think it's safe to say that the majority of this site like the aftermarket, give me more power pipes. I am one of them, I think it sounds horney when I am at a club house on the trail or takin a break on the side of the trail and a sled with pipes comes screamin by.

I'm confused! Were you talking about yourself or soemone
else. And one other question....areyou coming to the
bar-b-q this year? LMAO
If there is nobody in a 3 km radius, go ahead with the loudest pipe possible, If not, keep a 60 km/hr speed limit to stop giving a bad rep to snowmobilers and to be able to keep our wonderfull trail system as well as respecting others.
AC do you think a speed limit would work,really?most would totally ignore that just look at some of the people you pass on the trail this year,and remember the ones you passed in years past.it is the disrespectful people that will kill the sport not loud sleds.the problem is most of the people that are this way like fast sleds and they make them loud and disrespect many people ,in the process.now the problem become stereo typing and saying all loud sleds have disrespectfull owners and i know as well as many of you this is not so.
I don't think a speed limit would work, i'm not implying that there should be one, I'm just saying that people with loud pipes should keep the noise down by going slower thus respecting owners of the lands we're ridding on. It's up to the people with loud pipes to smart'n-up (the ones who exagerate). I also wrote that If there's nobody around, then go for it. Since I like to give some throttle once in a while near villages and homes, I prefer not having pipes cause it's too tempting
It all comes out to this; If you can't controle yourself then don't buy one and don't blame the owners of the lands of being too sensible, it's their land after all.
It's usually the guys with no respect flying down the trail at break neck speedswith the loud pipes brappin anyways.Perhaps a law allowing open season on idiots would make all people concerned about this problem happy
Actually it was a loud set of pipes that
alerted me to an idiot trying to pass me on a turn going uphill,i
heard his pipes and was able to get my arm out in time to smack him in his helmet.
This is a no brainer. It doesn't matter if you run aftermarket pipes, if you like them, or don't like them. The answer should ALWAYS be to at LEAST to have a choice to run what you want. If you don't like loud pipes, don't run them. IMO you can think of loud pipes as guns; guns don't kill people, people do. Same can be said of the pipes, loud pipes don't ruin the sport or shut down the trails, it's the 'tards out there at 3 am driving irresponsibly(so to speak).
Just my 2 cents though.....
