Gotta love Ebay!

Recommended Posts

So...I was looking at parts for my 2005 Husky TC 250. I wasn't really looking for a new exhaust silencer, I have the aluminum US version and it works well enough and has a pretty good dent in it. (no biggie)

I have no idea why prices for the titanium European model are so expensive, but here's some prices for a new OEM silencer from Motosport...etc.:

Here's one I found on Ebay for...$40...lol.  It was listed as "New...extra inventory". I was skeptical, but for $40...why not give it a shot? Here's what I got:

As you can see...someone tooled the end cap to put a spark arrestor in there and that's fine...I was going over in my head how I was going to customize one in there because I need one. The only thing I see is he ran out of rivets and had to use one oversized one. Other than that it looks mint and it doesn't appear any exhaust has ever passed through it!

 

There are deals out there!

You say you needed a SA, but if you need one for legal or rules reason, then it might be illegal since not stamped USFS approved.

The spark arrestor that's in there is a forestry approved one...has the correct mesh. My 2016 250r has "competition use only" stamped all over the pipes...as long as you have an approved spark arrestor inside...they are good with it. I haven't been turned away yet at the places they have checked it. It's the guys that try and put a kitchen sink strainer in there with large holes that get flagged.

$1k for a silencer?

The one you got for $40 is very pretty.  

They are pretty high priced for OEM...but I've run into this with just about all OEM Husky parts. Around twice the price of parts for my Honda 250R.
