05' WRF 450 GYT-R insert?????
Posted November 12, 2004 - 10:00 AM
I do know that the new muffler style is still plugged up tight with that tiny hole so there's got to be some kind of help out there.
Also, does the 05' still come delivered with the throttle stopped half-way like the 03 & 04? and is if so, is it still the same simple fix to either grind down the screw or replace it with the YZ version?
And, (boy I'm full of questions!) is the gray wire mod still necessary on the 05'.
I apologize for asking what are probably already redundant questions on the board but I haven't had time to search and really could use some quick answers to these questions before I order,
Thanks in advance.

A GYT-R insert will not be needed for these bikes (you lucky dogs!)

How do you pull the baffle out of the stck pipe. My buddy just picked up the 05 and is having a hell of a time getting the thing out. HELP!!

If you install the PMB insert make sure you wallow out the opening of your end cap with the snorkle before installing or it won't fit.

When someone refers to removing the "snorkel" (in the FAQ), they are referring to removing the airbox intake snorkel, which is a sound baffle.
This is the first year that the WR has had a truly removeable stinger.
Now... once you remove your "snorkel" (stinger), how do you retain the spark arrestor, and how loud is it?
References to the WR being at 96db with the restrictor removed are referring to the restrictor being drilled out and removed with the stinger left in place.

I removed the entire exhaust insert leaving just the Spark Arrestor. (edit.... Spark Arrester can be retained by reinstalling the 4 bolts that hold the exhaust insert). While I did end up removing the pea shooter from the insert I have not reinstalled it as of yet. My exhaust is quieter than a friends white bros e2 pipe who is currently running the silencer/spark arrester cap.

FOR NEWBIES: The Snorkel looks like 2 pipes about 1/2'' in diameter butted up against each other. One way goes into the spark arrester, the other out the end of the pipe (aka "the can"). The spark arrester is a cylindrical screen inside the pipe that you MUST leave in or you will inadvertently commit arson.
