Ok guys, I have always bees a street guy so forgive the noobish question.. I picked up a used 08 yz450f with a fmf4.1, megabomb header already installed. Is it possible to get a deeper sound from the bike? I hear some of these 450s and they are very deep, throaty rumbles.. Mine sounds like a 250 on roids! Thanks for looking!

Are you more concerned how your bike runs or how it sounds? The FMF system you have is very good as far as performance goes. Some of the older systems from White Bros and Big Gun had a booming exhaust note but they would also make your ears bleed after a while.

The quiet insert from FMF will do just that....make it quieter.

This should make it sound 'deeper'.

Bikes sound different from when you ride one and when you hear someone else riding one. Let someone else take your bike for a spin and see what it sounds like.
