It's just a copper washer and only a couple of bucks...

Why not just buy the right one? :D

Just FYI - everyone of the YZ's (and Honda 's for that matter) drueled spooge right there no matter the condition of the gasket or the O rings. :)

There really is no cheap alternative. You should go to the Yamaha shop and order the correct one. I had the exact bike that you are talking about and to the best of my knowledge there is no alt. The price on the piece should be around $5-10.

i found what works really good is to get a small diamiter bicycle inertube and cut a 2" chunk off and slip it over the silencer 1" , and then fold in the other 1" inside the pipe and then slip the silencer on the pipe and fold the little rubber edge thats left over back over the main pipe. do ya get it?

it worked really well for me on my old CR250 , i could never get the origanls to seal verry good?

Oh, In hear sarcasm in that tone. . . :D

Mulisha00, I don't think furry was being a smart a##, I read your post and I could see how he come up with the idea.

Check the attitude dude :D , you wanted help and people, (including furry :D) are trying to help. If people are thinking in terms of thumpers, well duh-huh, you're at THUMPERTALK. Give people a break and you'll get a break. There's a lot of experience with all types of bikes here, you want to benefit from it all, chill. :)

Rocky Mountain sells an aluminum piece to replace the stock one. I think the stock piece must be made of rubber covered platinum over gold as the cost is about 40.00!!!!

I looked at the RM piece, but decided to try to get more life out of my stock part.

Anybody try a piece of high temp shrink wrap? You'd have to replace it every time you pulled the silencer off, but the stuff is cheap.

I think I would try the bicycle tube idea, then slip shrink wrap over it and heat it. It would seal it up pretty good.

auto parts stores will usually sell different diam hose and cut to what ever length you need i think it was like thirty cents from pep boys when we did it for an old IT 400
