i had a exhaust tip on my teryx but, after the first weekend 1 bolt was holding it on and after the 2nd weekend i have no exhaust tip. do i buy another , and if so how do i keep it on , or do i go for an exhaust. my dad has the prototype dasa exhaust, jetted and dry filter, and he has very little bottom end on me and at top end we both pulled 55 and i passed him and he backed up. i heard an exhaust is the way to go, but i see no difference. should i just sit down and drive it, the only problem is that i need a spark arrestor for the mountains. what to do?

As far as the tip is concerned, the Teryx I rode with in the dunes had the tip last about an hour before it melted off. If you want the tip on, I suggest some lock-tite.

I as well as quite a few others have the Muzzys and love it! It has a removable quiet core and spark arrestor so you will not need to worry about that.

Maybe start out with a CDI, then an exhaust, then clutch, and then and then, lol the skies the limit.

I've got a used tip I'll sell for 20 bucks and I'll pay the shipping! If interested?
It is just like this one,

eBay Motors: Kawasaki Teryx Billet Exhaust Outlet Power Tip pipe 750 (item 310099266677 end time Nov-16-08 16:28:06 PST)

I've gone to MUZZY'S and no longer need it!

Strange that you lost yours though, I've had mine for over 500 miles, and the bugger was still tight!!! I have heard of others losing theirs too, IMHO locktite is nothing but a sales pitch.
I ran the SS and also the billet for many miles and it never got loose either. I did use Blue Locktite on both of them. Very odd how some people can't keep theirs on but others do not have a problem at all.

How do you like your new found acceleration from 15 to 50 Tee-rible? I LOVE the performance of the Muzzy's, sometimes I wish it was a tiny bit more quiet but the power is awesome for sure.

Don't get caught without a spark arrestor. I ride a lot of national forest land and I have been checked 3 times. Once I asked what would happen to people without and was told that they could give you a 500.00 ticket and take your machine. I was like OUCH man that sounds pretty harsh. He said he could but generally depending on the attitude of the person, they give one warning. Guess you would not want to get caught when the ranger was having a bad day.

Not sure if you are aware of this, however, Muzzys has some new packing material that quiets the system up a tad.

I have been running the new packing material for about 150 miles. It is a bit quieter but not that much honestly on the db meter at 5 feet behind the vehicle. My neighbor did say it was quieter on approach to her house (roughly 1/2 mile approach that she overlooks on my way up) the other day, which is something a meter is not going to be able to measure but is a nice feature of the new packing. I like the fact that the packing will last a lot longer. My original packing had approx 160 hours on it when I had them done.

Here is what the new packing looks like before installation into the canister.





Here is how we tested at 5 feet behind the machine comparing the old packing to the new.





We used my iPhone and I first went to Radio Shack and compared it to the one they sell. My iPhone with this software was within 1 or so db so I figured close enough for my testing.



I shot a bunch of video, these are actually screen caps from the video. I will get around to producing it someday. Since I got almost identical db readings with both packing material, I am trying to figure out how to show on video the practical db difference. The new packing is definitely quieter but in a way that is hard to show on video or a meter. It carries less distance, how the hell do I show that on tape? This is why no video has been produced yet.

I got identical db with the meter set on max and revving the crap out of the machine, probably to almost redline at 5 feet.



Very quiet I think for the power you get out of the Muzzy's exhaust. Got my FST std bore kit on the way and looking forward to a few more horses. :)

I think the way you said it in your signature says it all, I THINK I'M IN LOVE!!
Why ANYONE would not switch to the muzzy's is beyond me...well...I know they are not for
everybody.

The little woman sure stirred up a storm when I first bought them, now she even likes the sound!
I'm now hitting around 64 - 65 on the digital dash (I know..probably more like 52 - 53 on GPS) but I sure get there a helluva lot faster!

Yea the power is definitely there. I could tell a major difference when I installed the Muzzy's and even more once I got the jetting right. HUGE difference in power to the seat of the pants.

I have an exhaust tip as well and lost 2 of the 3 bolts. I was using loctite but then I switched to a loctite for high temps and have not had a problem since.

Magellan,

Call me Monday and I can send you the SAE test procedures for measuring exhaust decibel levels. I haven't looked at the test specs for years, but the SAE procedures are not difficult to follow and do not require anything special to be purchased. This may help you get better data to differentiate what you are hearing.

In the test specs, there's a diagram showing where to locate the meter. As I recall, they specify that you have the engine warmed up and run the engine at steady speed for the test. I believe the test RPM is 1/2 max RPM. You also have to consider ambient sound, including wind. The test procedures are for measurement outside, without obstructions nearby that would reflect sound (buildings, etc).
