there is a small baffle that you can drill out... you can see the rivet in this pic Posted Image
or you can do i like i did and weld a bigger tube on it and take off the part that is inside the spark arrestor screen.

no, :thumbsup: it technically is not 100% legal on a green sticker bike.

but.... the only thing I've seen the rangers check is for spark arrestor and for sound level. this modification won't cause you to fail either test.

for $60 dollars you can buy the same tip from promoto billet and keep your original tip in the tool box, if somebody tries to send you home, you can just put the stock one back on in 2 minuets.

but seriously, as long as you are not too loud or going to cause a fire... they don't care.

You can get the GYTR enlarged cap for $45... retains S/A and is still around 94db

I have been very happy with it and have never had an issue when inspected:thumbsup:

I have the GYTR insert, my buddy on an identical 08 WR450 has the promoto... the promoto version looks nicer and has a larger diameter tube. it was a tight squeeze to get it thru the tail cap. and I think It sounds just a tiny bit deeper too. the promoto is heavier :thumbsup: ..... but, If I had a do over, I’d get the Promoto.

I used a piece of .049 wall x 1 1/4" stainless for the end tube. Also, ground out last baffle and replaced those two wimpy 1/2" tubes, with one 1 1/2" SS tube. I like it alot.:thumbsup:
