My neighbors have complained about the engine noise from my gyro, so I am wanting to buy an intake silencer for it. I just picked up an exhaust silencer for it .If anyone has a dual intake silencer they would like to sell, please let me know.Thank you , Kevin

No idea
I have one but let me talk you out of buying one. The expense of buying one even used does not justify the little noise reduction you will get. A new one is about $200. You will have to rejet your carbs otherwise the rotax will run too rich. Needles and jets for both carbs will run $103 plus shipping. You lose 2% in power reduction. The big air filter on the silencer is about $40. The silencer sockets are about $50 each. The problem is the sound reflecting off the airframe, prop, and blades.

Too many to count
Most of the noise comes from the prop.

Thank you for your honesty. I will have to live with what I have.
