35 posts in this topic

i see a few of you guys have the fmf factory four system and i kinda want to pipe my bike and would like some opinions like full system or slip on power, sound, ect. let me know i really like the look of the anodized factory 4 and the sound of it. (well on a crf450) but dont notice the power that much :cry: :cry: :cry:

A thunder alley is 350 bucks brand new, custom built and will liven up your bike in a day and night difference sort of way. Other than the jemco(more of a top end oriented exhaust , the TA is a low/midrange), the TA unmatched for bang for you buck.

I put one on my kids yz250f. What a waste of a pipe. It made less power than the stock pipe.

I just ran the 05 450 with a Ti-4 pipe on it, loud is an understatement. I run a T-4 on my yz250f so I am used to it. But it will never pass 96db. I would venture that it's at 104.

The dr. d pipe was chosen in the last shootout because it reduced the hit down low. Considering they changed the way the bike responds coming out of the hole this year, you dont need a pipe thats going to make it even less responsive there.

I would wait for a shootout on the 05 pipes to see if the dr. d still tones the bike down.

Stock... look at the dyno figures... unless you want to change sound or bad characteristics (or shed weight) stay with the stocker. Yamaha made a damn good pipe straight out of the box IMHO.

I disagree with the stock pipe quote - White Bros Alum race series is the best for me - I have drd slip on for sale cheap if you want it pm me.

Boy I dont know about the stock pipe comment. The Ti-4 made big differences across the powerband over the stock pipe.

And makes the power smoother. Which makes me nervous about what it would do to an 05.

i got the fmf fact 4 pros: it was a lot lighter than stock and had a small performance boost cons: did not like the jet kit that came with it and was a little expensive.

I come from the school of two strokes... if a pipe doesn't add at least 10-15 % HP whats the point :cry:

By the look of most of your guys sigs it seems like you have a pretty inexhaustible source of funds, if I did I would probably pipe the ole' girl :cry: I'd rather spend my pennies on suspension work... all the power is for naught, if you can't get her to handle properly :cry:
