They must have changed it recently. About a year ago I put the Trail Saver in mine and it made very little difference. Still too loud. I'm glad to hear it works now.

Perhaps they sold you the basic "Quiet Core rather than the Trail Saver Quiet Core? Or, how many miles are on your Lexx? Could it need to be repacked?

Lexx makes 5 inserts, 2 of which are in their quiet core series that are actual baffles with spark arrestor screens. The race tip is basically a wide open 46mm tip followed by a 40mm and 36mm tips each reducing the db level by only a couple of dbs. All 3 of these are well over a 100 dbs. The 4th insert is the Quiet Core Baffle and it protrudes out of the tip at a 45 degree angle and is designed to bring the noise down to a park legal 96 dbs. The 5th insert is the Trail Saver Quiet Core Baffle which is designed to be the quietest silencer at only 85 dbs and it protrudes out of the tip at 90 degree radius. I attached 3 pictures, the 46mm, 40mm & 36mm all look essentially the same so the first picture represents those 3 inserts. The second picture is the Quiet Core Baffle and the third is the Trail Saver Quiet Core Baffle which I have in my Lexx and it is significantly quieter than the stock exhaust.

Cheers
Kev
