Yeah Rusty's correct the NOS means "non oval pipe" in the Wings world. But to the rest of the world NOS usually is "new old stock". Go fig. Also on a side note I had the dealer that I bought my bike from and he told me his parts guy made a mistake and had purchased a new Akra exhaust (header, pipe, carbon heat shields, the whole nine) and was trying to sell it to me at his cost because he said it wouldn't fit the new 2014's. Not sure why it won't fit I'd be curious to hear why, or if he might be mistaken should someone want to research it.

I want to say I'm in, but I was also contemplating a Q4 and a Powerbomb.  That's what I have on my KLX 450r and I like it.

But I don't know if it would require a remap, I'm guessing it will.  Since the '14 hasn't been **** yet I'm concerned about the amount of time it will take for someone to figure it out and get a solution out to the public.

Is the Wings Spark Arrestor USFS spec?

It does not have a USFS stamp on it, but it should pass stick test with one of their insert.  They have a wire screen & a solid end.  It been told it is a lot of $$$ to get the stamp.
