Iv been searching on ebay for some cheap mods since I installed my Dobeck. i was about to buy this Phoenix performance spark arrestor, and i was wondering if anyone has any information or feedback whatsoever on this product?
I got one. Where do you ride? In California, we have to have spark arrestors practically everywhere there are trails. I like the sound of the stock exhaust with the stock spark arrestor removed, its not as loud as most open pipes, and provides a slight power increase over plugged.
I bought the Phoenix arrestor because I wanted to keep an arrestor in with little restriction. Its louder and has a richer sound than stock but its not as loud as no arrestor at all. Since I ride near town and wanted and arrestor to stay "legal" I tried it out. Seems to have the benefits of less restriction with the bonus of having a functional arrestor. The minor problem is the "legal" part. Its not USFS approved and the disclaimer says that its for competition use only, it probably really doesnt even matter though. If you're looking to keep an arrestor and get a little bit more out of the stock pipe then it seems to be a good alternative. Eventually I plan on buying a full pipe but this will hold me over until then. Machine maintainence and protection have more value right now.
