INTRODUCING dB Dawg - Universal 4-Stroke Silencer Insert

This unique silencer is aimed at 4-stroke riders using tracks which are under sound restrictions yet find it hard to budget for an after-market Q or Enduro 4-stroke exhaust system to meet the new and always lowering sound requirements.

The dB Dawg simply fits into your current tail pipe whether it be a stock or after-market performance pipe and lowers the sound of the machine by around 6db, in some cases even 10db! Many people suspect that a sound reduction of this amount would mean power sacrifice but this is proven to be untrue, there are dyno prints for two of the after-market most popular machines and the power reduction is well below 0.5%, in some cases only 0.15%.

Many tracks are under threat of closure due to the noise of the 4-stroke machines, do your part...Fit the dB Dawg!

dB Dawg Common Questions
Which dB Dawg fits my bike?
Simply measure the bore of your tail pipe outlet from side to side across the middle (in inches) then check with the sizes below as to which insert you require.
Why are the inserts in different colors?
dB Dawg inserts are colored for stock identification only. The inserts are anodized in a light coat and all inserts fade to a neutral bronze color within five rides.
Do I still need to repack my silencer frequently?
All tail pipes should be repacked frequently whether they are stock or performance pipes. A poorly repacked tail pipe will not only cause issues but will also cause a power loss to the machine. The dB Dawg is not a replacement so you don't have to repack your silencer!
Will my bike need to be re-jetted?
dB Dawg silencers tend to make most machines run slightly richer, you will need to check your fuel mixture & jetting although in most cased all that is required is lowering your needle one to two positions.

Internal fit dB Dawgs are for silencers with removable end caps only (except Hindle)

dB Dawgs are not suitable for carbon fiber mufflers

Also available - 28mm dB Dawg for custom applications to meet the AMA 99 dB rule

These charts are a guideline only. Most silencers change from year to year so we recommend that you contact us if you are not sure that one of the inserts listed will fit your silencer. Questions? Call 763-263-9835 or e-mail jay@hyderacing.com

NOTE: Color fades quickly after use

  • Silencer insert can become extremely hot after long periods of use - DO NOT TOUCH!
  • Check tightness of allen bolts before every ride
  • It is recommended that you tether the silencer to your bike - some tracks may require this
  • You must check your jetting to ensure you have the correct fuel mixture
  • Proper packing maintenance is required & will help to maintain lowered decibel readings
  • Hyde Racing or Ignition Products will not be held responsible for lost/stolen silencers or any injuries resulting from dislodged silencers due to improper installation or maintenance

Did you know?
A decrease of 6dB means the sound is now half as loud!
