Probably, depends on the current jetting. Chances are, a slip on will only make the bike noisy and not faster.

is the bike 100% stock? then yes. you will just make a lean bike leaner.

I put a Lexx on my YZ450 and after two rides I checked my spark plug. It was showing lean so I went up to a 165 main. Put a new plug in and check it after a ride? That was my method anyway.

the bike is an '04 and 100% stock with the exception of the dealer installed gytr de-restriction kit meaning (non-california). if anyone knows about that kit, what if i just took out the gytr exhaust insert and ran the bike like that. would the engine run lean? i guess what im trying to get at is i want that gytr insert out OR nicer sounding exhaust without re-jetting. possible? i have a buddy who races moto and he said if i took that insert out it wont hurt anything but the dealer says the opposite, i could burn out the exhaust or burn a valve.

There is no right or wrong answer as every bike and exhaust is slightly different. And "running" and "running well" are 2 different things that have 2 different answers.

Will you bike run? Yes. Will it run well? Maybe. Will it burn down? More than likely not. Should you be ready and willing to rejet as your bike will run much better and much cooler jetted properly? Yes! Will you bike, you riding partners and the bike gods thank you for proper jetting? 100% yes.

Jetting is not rocket science, black magic or voodoo. It's a science with quite a bit of into on this forum to do it right and get you in the ball park. There have been quite a few good things written about the Lexx slipon and I am pretty fond of my Q2 or the Q4's now; just do everyone a favor and run a quiet slipon instead of a loud ass baffle-less stock pipe.

Quiet pipes save rides.
