I have been reading ThumperTalk.com for about 2 years now and would like thank all of you fellow WR450 riders out there for your free mods and friendly advice.
I am not a young pup any more so I thought I would get something a little more manageable to go ride with my two young sons. I will admit that at first I was disappointed with the power of my WR450 . I finally got off of my over worked and busy butt to do all of the mods and then some. What a hughe difference!! No sh&t!! Those out there that says the free mods are all BS, are full of BS.
Now, what aftermarket pipe do I need to light this rocket? Any suggestions? I am looking towards FMF and there new exhaust line up.

I got the GYTR for my 04 450 and I really really like it. My buddy had the E2 and is not quite as happy, but its pretty nice too. My uncle has the FMF PC4 on his 426, is it very nice as well. I also hear great things about the DR. D system, the only bad thing is that you have to buy the whole system with that one, $$$$.

I did all the free mods and even got a cam. Great power gains. The exhaust system didn't do very much beyond that.
I know it sucks but we must get our bikes as quiet as possible. In the end this is in our best interest.
Believe me I love the roar of a healthy thumper. But I believe great HP can be made without open pipes.
I am not a fan of sound regs but I gotta ride by them here in Cal. Our Shadow will slowly ease it's way east.
