The power gains were excellent, as I installed a James Dean jet kit at the same time. Very pleased with the results, so are my friends and neighbors!

Yamaha GYT-R also makes a quiet insert for original muffler.
I bought that insert last year for my '02. The bike was un-corked when I purchased it. It slowed the bike considerably and made it sound like a moped. I did, however ride like that all last year as the uncorked pipe was way too loud.
I just took out the insert and wrapped the spark arrestor with packing. When I get the rest of my bike back together, I'll take a sound meter home from work and check the decibal rating and report back here.
