WR exhaust on YZ
Posted May 24, 2006 - 05:02 AM
My friend want's to quiet his 426 down for neighbors.
Would it work to put a WR exhaust on?
He has a 00' YZ426.
Reason I'm asking is my other friend just bought a 06' Honda 450 quad
and that thing is crazy quiet, restricted, but FAST.
Thanks for any input.

Stock? Extremely quiet (about 86db).
how quiet is the wr exhuast?
Uncorked? The '04 and older WR exhaust is louder (and heavier) than the YZ.
Uncorking an '05 or '06 gets you into the 96db range, which is a nice reduction from the YZ, and I think you only gain about 3-5 pounds. The old WR exhaust was heavy.

YZ's are typically in the 100-105db range.
I'm using the yz450 05' model. It's longer and is made of aluminum. The sound is hollow and mild but still have the kind of grunt whilst throttling it hard. But don't know whether its higher than 96db.
