Indy500, Check with your dealer or a good speed shop for polaris, BUT I'm suggesting it's not a good idea,especially if you try it. A 2 stroke needs the right back pressure and you start modifiying your stock pipe could be trouble???You may end up worse off....Yamaha1man

You can cut apart and gut your silencer but that will only make it louder. As far as modifying the actual pipe, that can be done as well but only by a pipe builder.

I've been thinking about adding a MBRP silencer to my 97 Ultra SPX, mainly because of the weight savings. Do you think they get to a point of to much noise. I don't want my ears to ring for a day after I'm done riding. Do you think the added HP claims are real numbers?

Hey guys: Here's some real world experience. I have a '96 F-III (Heavy Pig) and I have triple individual Stingers on my sled. This is not the canister silencer obviously, and like the guy with the Ultra, yes, the weight savings are unbelieveable. It is X-Tremely loud! Sometimes I wear earplugs every other day because I am too lazy to put the factory can back on. ANd yes, these are made by MBRP. I do not know if you can even get these any more, canisters are way more popular and practical. I CAN tell you a couple things, this sounds funny but my sled seems to start a lot easier with these Silencers. I also notice a little more bottom end snap, especially since any extra bottom end is easy to notice on a triple. Other than that, I would say it is mostly a huge weight loss and an unbelieveable screaming exhaust gain! I think a canister would save you a lot of weight still and make the noise that you want. I would not modify the stock pipe either because you do not want to change the expansion chamber unless you know what you are doing. And if you cut apart the silencer to rip the fiberglass out, I hope that you are good with a rivet gun because if not it will leak like a sieve and smoke under your hood! Good luck!
Kick ass!

Depending on the year of the Indy 500

Most only have pipes and no muffler

Performance Pipes on the older 89-93 Indy 500s are way TOO LOUD and you would get your trails to clase real fast:(

Hope you are not looking just to get your sled to be louder,if so that is real sad
