The bikes on top are from Yamaha's galleries...from left to right, '06 WR, '06 YZ, '07 WR. The bottom two are my '05 with the FMF and the new Dr. D, and yes, I mounted a YZ fender on my WR. You can see the Dr. D, though longer than the FMF, is still shorter than the stock cans. I personally don't have a problem with it being longer...I guess it's a size doesn't matter thing with me. Anyway, this little collage ought to give you some perspective. Hope it helps...SC

Let me change this as my question has now changed, for the price i can get a Dr. D with SA and Quite Core for 301 shipped. but i like how the Factor 4.1 FMF pipe looks on the bike. but its going to cost almost 400 bucks after you add the SA to it. which slip on is going to provide the most gains most in the lower to mid range. i know Dr. D is great in this area.
The Dr.D SA can also be removed to turn it into a full race can. I believe they're going to be comparable in performance, you're only hitch is appearance and $100. Dr.D has gotten rave reviews from both consumers and the trade mags, but so has FMF. Also, Dubach is a Yamaha factory test rider. Either way you go, you can't go wrong. It's just that one way is more expensive than the other. One last thing to remember is that the Dr.D comes with the quiet core, while the 4.1 doesn't have one available for it. You do live in the PRC and no matter where you're riding, regardless of it being open desert or a suburban backyard, it will eventually make a difference..SC

2) Big Gun has been good to me, and I have never had a problem with thier pipes and they seem to make good power over stock.
3) When I got the '07 WR, I wanted to try something different a friend bought a DR.D for his Raptor and he really liked the fit and finish of the DR.D and said it made more power than Big Gun Powered Raptor, so I got one. I am VERY pleased with my DR.D and would recomend them to anyone looking for a 4 stroke pipe.

I am thinking about the Dr. D or the White Brothers E2 for my 06 WR450. I am waiting for SC to update his thread on the Dr. D he just installed on his bike. My question for you is where can you get the Dr. D for $301.00? That's a damn good price. Please let me know...Thanks.

The $301 price was a special that is no longer available. We just got about 2 feet of snow in my main riding area and I just got in all the parts for my water pump rebuild, so I haven't had a chance to give it a ride...SC
the special price comes and goes, it will be back i have seen up 3 times since i found the site, i emailed them tonight to see when it will be back up. as soon as it is i will be placing an order with them! SC hope the snow melts so you can get the bike out and let it rip, i cant wait for the report.
ps where did you get the fender bag

Thanks for the info...Do you remember what mag that info was in? I am still undecided but I will need to make a choice soon or my wife will spend all of our tax money.
SC I am bummed for you...Buy a new pipe, put it on, and then have mother nature dump snow. As much as I hate snow I would still have to go out and test the pipe. I know I would crash and dent the new can but it would be killing me to sit there and look at my new pipe. I hope the snow melts soon and the water pump rebuild goes as planned.
