Inside Line Connect invited us to Cahuilla Creek MX for the Southern California-based company’s annual media camp. One of Inside Line Connect’s specialties is getting exposure for the moto industry brands it represents. The media camp, which is organized by Jason “Hapa” McCune, allows editors to get some one-on-one time in a “speed dating” type of format with the companies Inside Line Connect works with, one of which is FMF.

FMF was formed by Don Emler in 1973 in Hawthorne, California. Since then, FMF has become one of the most well known dirt bike exhaust companies in the world and is used by teams such as Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing, Rocky Mountain ATV/MC-KTM-WPS, Monster Energy/Yamalube/Star/Yamaha, Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/KTM, and FMF KTM Factory Off-Road Racing.

FMF’s flagship four-stroke exhaust system is the Factory 4.1 RCT, which is offered in full system or slip-on applications in either full titanium or a stainless steel header pipe and aluminum muffler combination. All Factory 4.1 RCT mufflers come with a carbon-fiber end cap. FMF offers multiple two-stroke header pipes such as the Fatty and Gnarly. The Southern California brand also produces several two-stroke mufflers. It manufactures quiet, spark arrestor-equipped mufflers like the Q all the way up to the high-end Titanium Powercore 2.1, and everything in between.
