8 posts in this topic

Has anyone tried a stock yz exhaust on their wr 400 and how does it work compared to any aftermarket exhaust. :)

I was told the YZ exhaust WILL NOT FIT.

I tried one and didn't like it, all top end power, killed the bottom end hit.

I have a DMC Head Pipe and a stock YZ silencer on my WR. I think it works great, but it is really loud.

My bike is dual sproted, so I ground off the little plate on the silencer that says it is a federal offense to use the pipe on the street. :)

Ya, the DMC headpipe is small so it helps low end a lot. With the stock yz headpipe you don't get that low end.

I've got a YZ head pipe, (believe it's the same as the WR) & YZ muffler on my 99 WR. i actually believe it helped over the entire range especially up top. the only change i made after the pipe install was upped the main 1 higher to 180. I've tried the E-series and still believe the OEM muffler is better than even that.

I too went from the std muffler on my 99WR(which is very quite but really heavy and damm ugly) to a std YZ muffler which is a lot prettier and lighter but a lot noisier.

Ifound the power slighty increased over the entire rev range and defintly felt crisper.

I have a 99 yz silencer on my '00 WR. Stock WR header. Everything fit fine, just need a longer rear bolt and washer. The power seems slightly increased over the whole range, however I have rode it once on an MX track, so I wasn't using low end chug power much, but did note the midrange had more kick. It seemed to rev a little quicker as well, but again one ride may not have been enough to make a good comparison. It isn't that much louder than the stock wr pipe with baffle removed, but it does sound different. Will be riding next week in the woods-that will be the test that is important to me-I'll report back when I have more seat time.

I will pay attention to the low end response, do some plug checks, and post my findings in a week or two.
