hey i am going to buy a jardine rt-4 full exhaust system, but before i do i want to clear something up. I have been hearing on different forums people talking about having to change the jetting when they put a new exhaust system on, so wat am i going to have to change when i put the new system on?? thanks (i have an 03 yz450)

The stock exhaust is a free flowing exhaust, so are the aftermarkets (for the most part). In my experience they do not need a jetting change. A fuel screw adjustment maybe deemed necessary, but other than that you should be fine.
