Is this a factory exaust

18 posts in this topic

So What is with the titanium tipped muffler on an 04?

Its not titanium tipped. The canister is aluminum and the tip is stainless I believe. The head pipe and the mid pipe are titanium

The entire exhaust system of all '03-'05 YZ450's is titanium, with the exception of the muffler can. The end plate is, in fact, stamped with the word "Titanium" right from the factory.

That pipe is a stocker.

question- :ride:

installing an FMF powerbomb header and the factory 4....man I know the stocker sticks way way out there.... but the factory 4 is almost as far out there.. looks different. :ride:

I put an FMF on my CRF450, and it tucks under the num-plate nicely.

Is it just a yamaha deal ?? :crazy:

Yes, exactly like that. :ride: Thought it just looked odd. :cheers: Thanks grayracer513.

I know (opps :lol: - I apologize N Z Boy, I am sorry not meaning to hi-jack your thread - it was just semi-related) Just noticed that pipes on the yamahas stick way out there. Just an observation. :crazy:

I was concerned that I'd been sent the wrong mid-pipe. :ride:

Hi, It looks like a US spec pipe on the back, a mate imported one and had the same style. NZ new seam to have a different pipe tip. Think its to do with the noise restrictions in the states.

Wicked! 05 YZF250. MX ( ardmore, harrisville ) and a bit of trail riding! Going to family day tomorrow at woodhill!!

Looking at your bike and how the pic was taken- did you by any chance buy it from beachsidebikes? If so i bought mine new from them last October- great to deal with! :ride::banana:
