I need to get a Spark Arrestor for the stock pipe on my 01'YZ426F and I don't know where to get one that will not flatten the wallet. Is there a way to drill the rivots out the endcap and somehow put some Screen in there? How would I attach it also?

try promoto billet. I know they make them for the 450's because I have one and love it.But I'm not so sure about the 426's? Give them a call!

YES, PMB does make an end cap with a spark arrestor in it that is removeable for the 426f, it runs for about 110$ bucks.

You'll have to go with a store bought unit. To be legal it has to have "U.S. Forest Approved" stamped on it. No home brews allowed.

I've got an 02 426 with the PMB endcap and I really like it. You need a rivet gun to install it, but it was pretty easy and the end result looks stock (maybe that's not a good thing?) Anyway, it's worked great for me and I noticed no change in power.

Rivets not needed - you can also use the provided screws if you wish (less aggro when you need/want to repack).

There are no provided screws, only rivets. The only screws that come with it are the 4 that hold the end piece on.

I just got mine about 2 weeks ago...

I just picked up a used PMB one off e-bay for $70 shipped to my door. Look around and you should be able to find one cheap. :cry:

If you ask, they'll provide screws, or at least they did with mine..

Yeah, you have to order it through PMB and ask for the screws. If you pick it up at your local dealer it will likely only come with rivets.

...as did I. When I ordered it from PMB, I asked them to include some screws (and an extra 8), which they did at NO extra cost. Now that's what I call customer service. :cry:

I want to add this too as I do all trails. Do you know what types of jetting adjustments are needed for this change? I have a 400 also.

I did no jetting changes for the spark arrestor, but the other day I had both the spark arrestor and quiet insert in. I think the bike stalled going over a small jump (think, because I cannot remember a thing about the incident!) resulting in me endoing and picking up a nasty concussion. I probably should have adjusted the fuel screw at least to avoid the stall (if thats what happened). :cry:

I'm new to this forum, but was wondering if you got a spark arrestor for your bike. I have a pro moto billet end cap on a stock 01 YZ 426 muffler. I have installed it right by taping and using screws. I have loved it but I finally broke down and put a new pipe on. I would sell it on the muffler if you'r interested. Let me know what you think it would be worth. You could email me at frankl@natr.com
