Installing Yosh TEC inserts

Recommended Posts

I did a search and didn't find anything on installing them and I am having a

problems installing. I thought it should be pretty straight forward, but I feel

kinda silly now because I couldn't get it back together with either of the inserts provided.

I ordered through my local dealer the TEC-Kit and it arrived today. It had

two different insersts. There was a smaller one with a round screen like

the one on the Yosh products page and a small turn down stainless steel portion.

The other insert was a screen about 6" long with a straight stainless steel

portion at the other end. I am not sure what each are supposed to be. I

know one is supposed to be quieter than the other as the packet was labeled

medium and quieter. Which is which?

I pulled my silencer apart and tried to install each of them and was un-able

to install either. The end cap would not go back on trying either insert.

Are there more than one of these kits? Is there something that I should

know that I am not doing? I thought it should be pretty straight forward

but it just seems that it takes up to much room at the end of the silencer

and does not allow the end cap to go back into position and line up with the

holes to screw in the end cap. If I pull either of the screens out, the end

cap goes back in perfectly with no problems.... wondering what I am doing

wrong and feeling kinda dumb right now as I have had quite a few other silencers apart without these kinds of problems

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

I presume you've got the Yosh exhaust right?

1.Take off the 3 allen nuts on the end cap and remove cap

2. Then insert the mushroom end into the Yosh exhaust so little metal tail pipe sticks out toward back of bike.

3. Put cap back on over the smaller pipe.

4. Put 3 allen nuts back on

Your other tec insert sounds fishy. My larger tec insert has the same size mushroom headed screen but has a larger opening in the tail portion. Neither screen is 6" long.

Hope this helps.

Paul,

Yes, I have the Yosh exhaust and I presumed installation would be exactly as you said. But it just ain't happening! Looking at Yosh's website, one insert looks like the medium insert, the other looks nothing at all like them. Being about a 6" screen with the stainless steel on the other end.

The end cap will just not go back on trying either one. Not even close.

Thanks for the help. Wondering now if they sent me the wrong kit? That's why I was asking if there was more than one available.

The older pipe didn't take the inserts if you have that pipe.

Therein may lie the problem. I just bought the bike last week and the bike already had the pipe on it. I didn't know this bit of information so I may just be hosed :thumbsup: Thanks for the info. I guess if nothing else, I will just see if I can return them.

Thanks,

Randy

Okay, one hacksaw and a big hammer and the mushroom type fits. Didn't really lower the db much, but at least I have a spark arrestor now. I may have to haul it to an enduro soon just to get it sound tested and see what it comes up with. Still a little loud for my taste though.

Thanks for the replys to all who tried to help.

Are you sure your Yosh had the "correct" end cap, etc.?

Don't know for sure. The end-cap fits the silencer perfectly without the inserts. There was no spark arrestor with it. Is it all correct? I don't know. I bought it used last week so I am still finding out all the "neat" things about it. I am finding alot of rounded bolts and replacing as I go. Nothing that has presented a major problem, but more of an annoyance.
