Default Inlet 0 tolerance on modified mufflers.

I just saw on the town of inlets site that they will be enforcing a 0 tolerance approach on loud mufflers this season. I ride this area quite often and there are a lot of sleds running loud mufflers, the Inlet/Old forge area has been allowing noisy exhaust systems in their trail systems for some years now while others areas of the state have been cracking down on them.

I personally donít like noisy exhaust systems they tend to piss people off and close trails.

I’m ok with that. Cans sound Like Crap anyway. I love the sound of crackling twin or triple pipes through stingers or “silencers” cans don’t personally bother me and I live on a main trail but they sure sound cheesy

Good! Cans are annoying and get trails closed. And very few "cans" even offer acceleration gains, and those that do offer gains often need jetting and clutching changes for any net improvement in performance. Too many mouth breathers think louder equals faster. I love passing these mouth breathers on my well suspended sled with a quite, stock muffer.

It’ll be interesting to see how well they enforce it. There are so many sleds running that area with noisy cans, I have wondered for years why they never cracked down on the noise in the Old forge/Inlet area, always figured all of the businesses in that area that depended on snowmobilers to stay afloat had something to do with it. Someone of importance must have had enough of it.

The key here is the Inlet/Old Forge trail system is PRIVATE which is why they can charge for permits. The OWN the land their trails are on and the can make/enforce their own rules and penalties.
When you buy one of their trail permits you are in fact agreeing to their rules, regulations and penalties. Anyone who receives a summons has to go to their court where their judges determine and enforce the penalty set forth by the state.

Since they can make loads of money with fines and court costs expect everyone to be found guilty.

Actually I’ve been in that court and they are small town fair and reasonable. Obviously they know tourism Is the lifeblood of the communities i don’t believe they will go hot wild on punishment or huge fines etc maybe just enough to get the point across. I on the other hand will be riding by Scott free as they are distracted dealing with guys yelling pull me over with thier cans

That's fine, once they leave old forge they can get another ticket for the modified exhaust.
Anybody know what the fine is for riding old forge trail system without a permit?

A lot more than purchasing a permit.
