What exhaust system should I install on my '00 WR400?
I want it to be quieter than original pipe without the baffle (current system) and I want a spark arrestor. Please use your experience to comment.

the answer you come up with is the Yamaha canadian/european silencer!
i did an enduro last year & the only four-strokes that passed the DB test were the standard WR's.
yup! at 92db THE STANDARD yamaha silencer! i thought it was loud until i put on my stroker tailpipe & took it off again straight away. quiet? not!!!
to be honest at 40 i find a loud pipe takes all the fun out of my riding. i can't green lane without wishing scotty could 'beam me up'!
try & bump into someone who is running the canadian pipe for a direct comparison. without a doubt the USA pipe is more restrictive which balances the restricted stroke of the carb.

i gave an idea!
about the only people that can connect a US pipe with the rest of the world are the canadians.
nobody said that it wasn't restrictive!!!!
what i said was that the DB's were low INTELLEGENTLY. i know that 92db will rob you of power but you'll never get it done for a smaller lose.
just look at that standard YZ pipe. unbelievable! nobody can get near it!
yamaha know what they're doing.
what we need here is an intelligent back-to-back between standard USA, Canook & aftermarket.
calm down, nothing is written in the scriptures!
it just seems a jolly good thing play with, ok chaps!
good will hunting.

I think JasonJ just came up with the answer to the "How Loud is Loud" thread. It took awhile but I knew someone would come up with an idea. Start pounding those beers guys!

sorry about the canadian spelling. we really do meet so few canadians that i had no idea how you spelt it. where does the saying come from anyway?
paul, i'd be delighted to meet you next january. i see that you'll be south of london at Guildford so we would be about 100 miles & 2-3 hours apart. i get very busy up to mid january & then it settles so you'll have to call me when you get nearer the time.
