If the part that broke is black and has an outlet about the size of pencil that is not the spark arrestor but the baffle. It is so restrictive that the bike will not run well with it in.
White brothers makes a vortip which is pretty quiet and will run much better that the stock baffle but will not have the perfomance of an aftermarket exhaust.
Most any aftermarket exhaust will add a bunch of power and noise. I had a WB E series until it got destroyed in a race. Loved the power, hated the noise. Had forgot how much power it added until I put the stock exhaust back on.

Unfortunately, with added power comes added noise.
I had an XR4 pipe mod on my WR4 and removed the baffle.
I had so much torque i was holding on for dear life.
BUT the noise was Crazy!
The authorities sure had something to say about it.....
Well i had to take it off and use my stock pipe,
quiet but sure lacking in power.
The advice to get the vortip exhaust by WB is a good one,
less noise but adds more power.
Good luck in finding one that is quiet enough but kicks ass..

If you are willing to let me borrow your baffle for testing I would gladly try it and do a write up. I am hating the stock baffle. I have to do something quickly. California regulations and all. Already thinking about the FMF Q and buying from Thumpertalk.

The parts fish you listed is for the TTR225.This is not the same style. The 250 baffle is the same as the WR baffle, with a larger port. Pm me with your address and I'll send the 250 baffle, Fed Ex (My Sister works there, I get a good discount).
I only ask you return the baffle when your testing is complete.
