Where is the peformance parts?

I am so inpatient waiting on the new parts to come out. Has anyone been in touch with any of the aftermarket to find out when cool parts was going to be released? I spoke with HMF and Dynatek this past week. Dynatek tells me they have no plains on the Viking CDI box yet, and said I was the first phone call requesting one for our Vikings. HMF is on board and is ready to get started as soon as their techs get finished with the project they are currently working on. They took down my information since I live relativity close to them. They told me they may bring mine in to make and R&D a exhaust system for the Vikings. If anyone else is in the mind set I am, please get on the horn and get the balls rolling. I am doing my part.

IME, we should be able to get more power AND keep stock db on the exhaust... maybe even quieter since we have enough room to run a large muffler that can be tuned for a big single. Loud can be fun, but it doesn't help the cause.

I'll start making calls to see what kind of numbers are required to get something into production.

Nothing better than getting more performance and being as quiet as stock. Unlike my cars and bikes, I like my UTV's to be quiet. Keep us posted.

I would like a muffler that is quieter than stock w/o losing any power. Anything out there?

you are going to have to look hard. its hard to find mufflers that are QUIETER than stock. most of them are meant to bring more noise out.

FWIW, I build all kinds of crazy stuff, and have my own little performance shop. Designing and fabbing a higher flowing system and muffler that can tune out the undesirable frequencies and keep things quiet will be a fun a project.

That would be awesome. Keep us posted. If you are successful, do you plan to sell them to the public? I would probably be one of the first in line.

An exhuast? Really the old lady would call me an idiot. Around the property it would piss off the cows across from us lol. We'll I don't mind it actually just the others that wouldn't appreciate it. I'll stick with being quiet though.
