Does anyone know of a quiet LIGHT muffler for the WR, that is spark arrested? The new FMF Q-Power (quiet power) is apparently just as heavy as the stock WR muffler. (unless the salesman didn't know what he was talking about).

I have my stock muffler for sale on Ebay for $15.00 right now. Where did you come up with 8.5 pounds? Mine weighed in at 6 lbs. Why anyone would spend $400 for an aluminum replica of the stock muffler is hard to understand.
I have put on the YZF muffler since it only weighs about 3.5 lbs. I got it for $50.00 from someone who bought a new FMF muffler that is certainly no quieter, but maybe spark arrested.
I hope soon a company will make a QUIET muffler that is as light as the aluminum YZF stock unit.

"...according to the scale in the lobby of the local grocery store...The stock muffler weighed in at 8.5 lbs and the megamax weighed in at 6 lbs..."
It may be possible that Yamaha lightened the mufflers between the 1999 and 2000 models.
Why sell your stock muffler at all if all you want for it is $15? You may need it (what if a bad crash destroys your other muffler) and it could make the difference between whether you ride that week or not. I'd hold on to it if I were you.
But then again, that advice is worth about what you paid for it.
