Looking at the HMF Exhaust and curious on how loud it really is. I still want to be able to hear my radio, and passengers without having to yell to each other. We'll also have two kids with us, so worried it may be too loud for them.

I'd like to hear from current HMF Exhaust Owners to get their feedback, thank you!

Former owner here. I had the Titan (the alleged "quiet" one) and took it off after a couple rides and sold it. It was annoyingly loud. Also gets louder as the packing wears out and you have to repack them (almost all of them) every 100-200 hours because the just get louder and louder. Aftermarket mufflers are just not worth the money. They add little to no power and make a lot of noise.

If you are after more power, don't waste your money. If you are after better sound, get a slip on that is not packed with fiberglass (or whatever they put in them now days).

Thanks for the replies all, I simply wanted the talon to have a little bark that sounded good. I heard the stock exhaust through videos and it sounds like a lawnmower. I take delivery on the next week or two, assuming there's no delays.

Was trying to plan ahead and have everything ready before it arrives so I can toss my mods on it sooner than later.

Can you remove the baffle on the stock exhaust, give it a bit more bark without buying after market?

Check out the Evolution Powersports exhaust for the Talon. You will love it

I had the full HMF exhaust on my 2019 and a DynoJet tune. Sounded good and comes straight out the back where the stock exhaust exhaust is behind the passenger. I didn't think it was too loud but not sure if performance was better. On my 2021 I just used the DynoJet tune on the stock exhaust, In both cases I get the occasional backfire when going down steep trails.

I love the HMF full performance exhaust, I have the louder versions and love them. They are the best sound and very distinctive. You have to run a tuner with them and pick up 11 HP according to HMF. After two years I would not trade them for anything ells. Hope this helps. :cool:

Hey @BlueDog1210, late reply sorry. Are you still happy with the exhaust? Also what kind of tuner are you running? Thanks in advance

Edit: I'd more than likely just run the slip ons, not sure I'd need a tuner still

Sorry, I have been out for quite a while, I love the HMF and have been running it for a couple of years. The only exhaust I am aware of that goes straight out the rear. I purchased the Dynojet with the exhaust.

I also have the HMF full exhaust with the Dynojet tuner Hess tune it definitely has a little more bark than stock but more so when you bury your foot in it but there is a difference in power and top speed, and it does pop a bit on compression.
