BUYER BEWARE WHEN PURCHASING MUFFLERS/SPARK ARRESTORS FROM ONLINE PRIVATE PARTIES
OAKLEY, CA - Quiet Warrior Racing (QWR) urges riders to beware of buying sound and spark arrestor compliant exhaust from private parties. Several riders at Oakland Motorcycle Club’s 2012 SheetIron 300 Dual Sport Ride were turned away from the event after failing to pass tech inspection.
The QWR tech team was not able to pass those exhaust systems because they did not have an officially approved spark arrestor or the spark arrestor had been compromised.
Don Amador, president of Quiet Warrior Racing, states, “Be careful when purchasing exhaust systems from online private parties. Several riders new to the sport had to be turned away from a recent dual sport event because they had unwittingly purchased a non-sound/spark arrestor compliant muffler from a private source.”
“With the price of travel, entry fees, and other costs associated with riding a dual sport or off-road motorcycle being so high, riders must take time to make sure their exhaust meets sound and spark arrestor land-use laws. QWR urges riders to include a review of their exhaust system on their bike prep check list before riding on public lands,” Amador concludes.
