Exhaust Can Options:
When purchasing your Barker's 2006+ TRX 450 exhaust system you have the option of choosing between a round can or an oval can design. The round can features a brushed aluminum (silver) billet clamp or black clamp option. The oval can design features a black, blue, or red billet clamp option.
"The new round can looks awesome and gave the finishing touch to our race quad. We also noticed the clamp was easier to put on with the round can when compared to the oval design. It also gave the quad a sharper sound and felt more torque at the touch of the throttle. This gave us a huge advantage through the rocks and the sandy whoops around the San Felipe loop. The installation of the exhaust went smoothly and everything bolted right up. We just love the way the new round design looks, especially with the two-tone anodized exhaust cap. We could distinguish the sound of our quad through mountains and the wide open desert when it was coming hot into the pits. It just sounds much more powerful than any other exhausts the competition was running. It still looks brand new after 515 miles of racing Baja!"

THE FULL STORY:
The revamped Honda TRX 450 is a serious threat in the world of off-road performance! When Honda released the 2006 TRX 450 it had been honed for race track ability yet was still amazingly versatile for all day riding off of the track. With quicker, sharper turning ability, lighter weight and more power than its predecessors, the Honda TRX 450 was certainly a force to be reckoned with. Offered in both kick-start and electric-start models, Honda did not forget about the rider. The Honda TRX 450 is loaded with power, and incredible handling and performance, so it’s really no wonder so many riders choose to ride this machine!

We are proud to sponsor Juan Pirrunas Dominguez, who races competitively in the SCORE International desert racing series. The SCORE International races are some of the toughest, most brutal races held in Southern California and Mexico. Desert racing makes for intense heat and terrain, and we could not be more proud at how our sponsored rider, Juan, and our exhaust system hold up against these extreme elements. You can learn more about Juan and our exhaust by reading our blog articles: Barker's Sponsored Rider, Juan Pirrunas Dominguez, Wins 2017 Baja 500, and Barker's Sponsored Rider, Juan Pirrunas Dominguez Wins 2017 San Felipe 250. The 2017 Baja 500 took place on June 4th-5th, 2017.
Every one of Barkers Exhaust Systems is made from premium materials and are handcrafted right here in the USA! While many other after-market exhaust systems can be mass produced from large assembly lines, Barker’s Exhaust Systems are hand-welded one at a time by skilled craftsman. The head pipe portion of your new system is made from 304 stainless steel that has been Tig-welded with seam-reduced interior surfaces for smooth flow. The can is comprised of 6061-grade aircraft aluminum and comes standard in a brushed aluminum finish. You might, however, decide to customize your new system by selecting which color powder-coat you would like for your can. You can choose either a black or red powder-coat finish. Further customize your new system by choosing which color Barker's tag and billet clamps you would like. Barker's tag color options include: black, blue, red or yellow. The billet clamps will harness your new system to your machine. You may choose black, blue or red billet clamps for your new Full Single Exhaust System.
Additional options for the Full Single Exhaust System for your Honda TRX 450 are the Barkers Quiet Core Insert and Barkers Spark Arrestor. The Barkers Quiet Core Insert will reduce sound by up to 5 dB and is ideal for riding in those sound sensitive areas. Heck, with a loss of only .5 to 1.5 horsepower you may even choose to ride with them in all of the time! The Barkers Spark Arrestor will eliminate any flammable debris from escaping the exhaust and will help to keep our trails safe!
At Barkers, we have an extreme amount of dedication and respect for the off-road lifestyle. And we understand that owning and maintaining a performance vehicle is no joke. That is why you can expect only the best in Barker's craftsmanship and design. All Barker’s exhaust systems carry a limited one-year warranty against defects in workmanship and/or materials. See Barkers Terms & Conditions.
We recommend that you monitor and check the packing in your muffler after every ride. The length and time your packing will last will vary depending on how and where you ride. When you first notice any sign of the packing depleting within the can, it's time for a repack. Packing will wear out slowly over time, starting at 100% packed. It is normal for an absorption style high-performance muffler to lose packing but once you lose more than about 10-15% of your packing it will deplete faster and faster since it can now move around in the can. It is imperative you do not allow the packing to deplete too far. If your muffler becomes very loud or you hear rattling around inside the can you have completely depleted the internal packing and should not ride the machine until the muffler is repacked with a fresh pillow. Order new packing before you need it!
The Barker's Exhaust Complete Repack Kit is designed to make repacking your Barker's Exhaust Can simple.
