well to be honest, MOST aftermarket exhausts, don't offer a LOT, more about marketing and hype, than true gains on MOST things
but gains you can MAYBE get will be, lighter weight, , made of better materials, BETTER flow of exhaust, better sound
MOST exhaust are NOT big HP gainers, ALONE< as if your going to effect air flow going out, you need to also gain air flow going in, air fuel mixtures and so on!
like all things, its a combo, of things working together that gets you the most gains, and DON"T think, that if they claim an exhaust gets you 3 hp, and a tuner get you 3-5 hp and then a performance air filter gets you 2-3 hp, m that doesn;'t really work in math, where you add them all together, LOL
combined they might only make the same 3-4 hp, and again, that might be HP at the crank, NOT hitting the ground at the tires! a BIG difference!
you'd be lucky to get HALF that at the tires on the ground!
guys that RACE and need every ounce of HP they can get to TRY and get an edge,
exhausts on most things, don't IMO be worth the added costs of them!small gains, bigger bucks out of pocket
if you need m,ore HP< buy a bigger motored ATV!, money better spent! LOL
