LEXX end cap 08 YZ450 review

SXP, compared to the WR it will be louder no doubt. It really wasn't that much louder than my stock 08 end cap was and I am running the full diameter outlet. This is one of the big reasons I went with Lexx as I now have an option to put the smaller outlet in to cut down on noise in certain areas as well. I think the carbon fiber gives it a great look as well.

Be advised that when evaluating how loud your bike is "by ear", you need to have someone else ride it past you. My son used to insist that the White Bros. R4 on his 250F wasn't "that loud" until one day he let a friend ride it around. His buddy ripped past us, and Junior cringed and said, "Shit, that thing's loud!"

A matter of perspective. It's always quieter on board the bike.

Just put mine on!:cheers:

A few days ago i fanally got a chance to let my bike stretch its legs. The mid-range is much much better and packs a stronger punch with the Lexx. I wouldnt quite say that its night and day, but its close.

Did you install the "special inner core" that Lexx Xc came with?

I plan on testing with it in and out. My guess is that it won't make much of a difference.....

Right now i'm using the larger diameter outlet and nothing else. When i go out riding on state owned trails i'll use the inner core, smaller outlet, and spark arrestor to keep it as close to legal as possible.

To answer your question, i have never tried it with the inner core.

Ok, well I will give it a try and let you know.

I tested it this weekend and here is my opinion:

-with the inner core(baffle) installed I didn't notice any difference from stock; noise and power delivery seemed the same to me.

-without the inner core the engine breathed better and definatly woke up the dead, giving it a little more bite on the bottom end.

-the screen didn't make any difference in or out(so I left it in)

-The larger outlet(46mm) barked like a thumper; the smaller outlet(32mm) was quiet and steathly

The only complaint I have is that the carbon-fiber cover already got cracked from a flying rock:banghead: other than that it is a good quality, cheap option for USFS end cap.

Yeah, yeah. It still throws a roost!:ride: and it has already been replaced.
