Stupid Pipe Question

I know the user name is misleading but I just picked up a WR426. I had the throttle stop cut down, put some tapers on it, and yanked the baffle out.

My question: Does the stock silencer have a spark arrester? I don't feel like having to buy a new one. I like the DB level of the stock one and fine with the deluxe power. I live in Colorado and have to have a spark arrester in the woods.

If you bought a WR426 in colorado yes it does have a spark arrestor. So where in colorado do you live?

I live in Denver. I just got off the phone with Excel Yamaha. They said that the screen in the pipe will serve as a spark arrester. Cool. The guy said that if someone give me trouble about it just to say I didn't know. I kinda want to know. I know that the screen is still in the silencer. Anyway. I like the DB and the bike hauls ass stock if you deal with the throttle stop and and take out the baffle.

I bought the bike in New Mexico. I paid almost a thousand less for it down there. Popular bike up here. Everybody buys YZs down there.

You live in Denver? When this weather clears up I'm heading to a track ASAP. Berthoud or Lakewood. I just sold my XR to a friend so I have to get him out there and see if he know what the hell he's doing.
