GYTR insert/stock exhaust question.
Posted June 19, 2006 - 11:15 PM
I've already done the 2 airbox , grey wire and YZ throttle stop mods and the stuff to finish out the free mods are arriving tomorrow. I just want to make sure that the previous owner didn't leave out a step when he put in the insert if there was something else such as removing a 2nd baffle or something.

The stock baffle has a hole the size of a pencil! Very quiet, but very restrictive. If it's removed the bike runs much better (especially after free mods.) but LOUD! I too have the gytr in my 04 wr450. My bike is bone stock w/ all free mods. done. Admittedly it runs best uncorked where noise isn't an issue, when it is the insert goes in. The only other option is an aftermarket "quiet" pipe, but I'm CHEAP! hence bone stock. I think GYTR makes a pipe that is supposed to be reasonably priced AND quiet. Keep an eye on your insert as mine kept vibrating the stock bolt loose and I ended up having to put a different bolt w/ a nut on it!
So is there just one stock baffle and it was already taken out to leave space for the insert or is there another one in there that I can take out just to try.
I'm actually not needing more power right now as I'm new and with my worn out tire I'm spinning the rear with the power I have. I'm going to order a new tire this week and that should make the biggest difference so far. I don't need to get an aftermarket now I just want to make sure there isn't something else I can do with the stock exhaust and gytr insert.
