I wouldn't worry too much about the bracket and fab one up yourself they are carbon fiber and mine lasted about 12 rides, that baby is hanging by a hose clamp 20 or so rides later...


LOL, that's great news Finch. Wonder if they make an aluminum one that's a little more durable??? I'm gonna call Leo Vince on Monday and see why their online Ebay store ships pipes without mounting brackets in the first place. Maybe they can help me out?

Here's another option for you. I am very happy with the stock muffler with PMB endcap and an FMF Megabomb header. Late last fall I had the opportunity to try a complete Pro Circuit T4R system on my bike and hated it. My set-up has much more bottom and mid power. Plus you get to keep the "tucked in" look on the muffler.

For one their stuff is wayyyy overpriced, just because they have some of the best pros, does not mean they have the best pipes...best looking pipes? Sure,their stuff always looks great, but then I am never after looks.

I love the red anodized endcap. Does it do anything performance wise? Or did your gains come from the Megabomb header. Thanks. Your bike looks awesome. Great job.

The endcap removes the secondary restrictive cone and comes with an optional cone and spark arrestor which you can install if noise is an issue. I removed the inner cone as well. Definite performance improvement even without the Megabomb.

As stated in my original post, the bike lost a ton of bottom end.

Has anyone tried the Lexx carbon cap? Is it comparable to PMB cap. I just like the look of the carbon for my YZ's color scheme. Thanks.

Went with a complete new DRD system off Ebay for $380. Best price I could find but I am sure there are better deals out there on them.
