I am looking at the DMC also.
The website lists the DMC as 9.0 HP with stock jetting.

I think the Sparks lists at 11.5 HP, no reference to jetting though so I don't know.

Not sure what Alba claims theres to be, not listed on the site. There might be some info under :search , but I haven't looked for it.

I think HMF was around 10 HP.

You may want to :search a little more either with MFG sites or in the archives for more info. (Not ragging on you to search, just a suggestion) :)

Search is very powerful...


Everyone has an a$$hole right? well everyone will have a different opinion about pipes.

If you want the most top end power period go with the ESR pipe

i have a dmc i am not saying its the best but my bike seem to have more top end tham same modded bikes with other pipes fmf sparks and hmf. i also weigh 250 with gear so i am almost always have 50-75lbs on most.

the cost isnt too bad i might switch to another pipe once i can see some dyno numbers or technical data to change to another. i also am seeking mid to high end numbers.

fair warning the dmc it very loud. louder than any other i have heard. this is due to the can is about 1 ft long but looks are deceiving. the packing only goes down 6 inches.

but the sound natzis havent busted me yet :lol

Had the Alba now I have the DMC. They both feel as if they perform about the same. The DMC seems a bit smoother. The Alba was a bit louder though.

A loud pipe sounds fun but can get very annoying after a while. A buddy of mine bought a LoudA$$ pipe a couple years ago and now he HATES it!! It didnt produce much more (if any) power than his old Alba pipe but has gotten him into plenty of problems. He can't even tune it up in the driveway without the cops coming to visit. Theres alot to consider when your in the search of (The Loudest).

im biased towards sparks. makes great mid range and pull like a freight train to teh top rpm range. for all out bottom end, you cant beat tc and for all out top end, nothing holds a handle to esr.

I have Duncan on my bike. It is very well built and has a life time warranty. It is not as loud as the big gun pipe on my raptor. I am very pleased with this pipe and its performance. All I have on my YFZ is the pipe, air filter and jetting. Not even the cam mod has been done and it walks all over my 250R with a Duncan power valved national level engine. I considered the Hmf and Sparks but from everything I read they seemed like they wopuld be too loud for my tastes.

Actually I ride my quad with a Sparks and a 180 main jet with unocal 110. Great combination. Howling machine. But your neighbors will hate you.
