I recently bought a used FMF powercore 4 and will try it next season. It has been repacked by the previous owner and is in good shape.
You can find them for pretty cheap. I bought an IMS tank, YZ seat, Baja Design Skid Plate and the PC4 freshly repacked for $180 US + shipping.
I'm gonna have to keep the stock exhaust for the week though because I plan on commuting to work with the bike and the PC4 is way too loud. I also might try the FMF insert for those PC4.

You buy a this system and you will be glad you spent the few extra bucks.

well, i am looking for the cheapest one.(my pockets arent too deep) any idea how loud the stock YZ muffler is? the only real big issue in california are the spark arrestors. in my opinion, the louder the better, i've looked at some titanium exhaust systems (pro circuit and such) damn, now they aren't cheap. where can i find an 05 YZ exhaust?
Ebay is a good choice, that's where I picked up my YZ pipe and head pipe for $50 They were in perfect condition also! It took a while to find but it was worth it. If you get a good deal on a stock pipe the PMB spark arrester is a good option to consider. My bike runs great with the pipe and the JD jet kit. Much cheaper than aftermarket:thumbsup:

I don't know where you ride in CA, but here in the southern half noise is a very real issue. Please have the courtesy to keep your bike within the limits so that you don't end up helping the folks who would see us banned. Noise does not=more power.

Just repack it really tight with any sort of good quality packing getting rid of the wire wrap crap.
The standard packing from Yamaha is absolute shite and can blow out the side of the can? Packing heats up, disolves then heats the wire wrap high enough to over heat the aluminium can.
I found the YZ pipe to just smooth out the power and gives a good mid-range top end hit:eek:

well, i'll keep it down for you radrick.
Don't do it for me, do it for yourself and the thousands of other CA riders who don't want to see more regulations on our bikes and/or closures of our riding areas. People who don't ride outnumber us and they vote on issues affecting us. We need to care about what they think and noisy bikes make the wrong impression on them. A little more top end power isn't worth the damage a noisy exhaust can do to our cause.

My only complaint with the E series is that occasionally I have to re-pop rivet the can to the inner shell. It seems 1 of the 8 or so rivets will work it's way loose every 5th ride. It's a 30 second fix though.
