I've made my decision to go with Hurricane mainly because Dave Marshall is great to deal with and I haven't heard anything negative coming from any of his customers here or the AC forums or from Totally Yamaha. Not to discredit TD, I haven't heard anything bad about their work either.

You will be happy with that choice. The tunes rip..... Make certain you clutch for the added power as it will make a huge difference in the performance.

I've read even the loudest turbo dynamics muffler is only 80-82 decibels In Michigan it seems that the people whom should be pulled over for sound issues don't get looked at.

I am aware of the positives of a free flowing muffler.

I may get away with a Super Quiet here in Vermont. But I like to ride in Quebec, and I'm not going up there without a stock muffler. For me the stock muffler makes the most sense.

10-4 on the clutching. I'm already using Hurricane's Super Tuner weights and will have to move weight around to accommodate the added power.

A few weeks ago before the winter came to a close I had the Hurricane stock muffler bundle done to mine. Mike Knapp (knappattack) lives close and is a Hurricane vendor so it made sense to use him. He is a wealth of knowledge on these sleds. The other thing I liked was with Hurricane's you have a nice broad HP arrangement, 225/240/270 all with the stock muffler. No worries of getting a noise ticket and no headache at the end of a long day in the saddle. A buddy has the 2.5" freeflow Hurricane bundle, his muffler is an EVO. It's kind of loud and annoying riding it all day. I generally run just 225 or 240 for the trails. I've only tried the 270 once. I would need to add a bunch more clutch weight to stay at 270. The bad thing is these are hard on clutch parts, etc. over the 250 mark.
