Yes, my son runs that pipe with his crf250. Pipe looks awesome and improves bottom end. We had to cut off the stop tab on the inside of the number panel to get the panel to lay down right. No big deal, except it gets the plastic really hot...so we put some heat reflective tape on the inside of the number panel, and also on the air box.

We don't have th carbon fiber silencer though. That'd be sweet.

To say the yosh pipe is too loud is not true. If you run the insert it is 96dba. now we can talk about the yamaha's being too loud, oh wait that's the only way the run is if you open them up and run them around 105dba..lol

I have the carbon fiber yosh comp. It runs really nice, and i didn't have to rejet. It's about the same noise level as stock but is a little deeper. The carbon fiber seems to hold up very well Here is a pictures

Another thumbs up!

I use the Yosh ti system and surely love it. Quality, fit and finish are second to none! Like the other guy said, the only thing is to shave off the side panel boss and use foil tape - no big deal. Further, the Yosh head pipe doesnt have the "low boy design" which is prone to damage from crashes, rocks, ect. Just look at the new White Brothers designs - they were smart and eliminated the low boy bend. I would stay away from the carbon canister - no need! To easy to damage and the fatigue life (cracking) do to the high heat is poor compared to aluminum and ti - Yoshimura includes a chart with thier systems illustrating this fact.

I have a Dr. D on my "R" and it has been great, but the Yosh has great craftsmanship and is supposed to give the powerband more of a hit. The carbon fiber is unnessesary because it costs more and is more prone to damage than...say...stainless or titanium.

Yes the aluminum would be better. With the carbon fiber you'd have to re-pack every few weeks. (by the way i was te250lover). This is what happens when you don't re-pack- 6 months...

in defense of the carbon fiber, the F-16 falcon (air force fighter jet) is built out of carbon fiber, as are most of our fighters. you may have just gotten a bad one, which sucks. :banghead: I'm still getting a yoshi, which one is another issue, I got time. I like the design and power increase. here in the central valley, it'd be rare :banghead:

I love the yosh pipe but i talked to yosh direct and they said it was a defect. If that happens to your carbon fiber take it back and they will re-sleve it.

I HAVE ONE

its nice, it is loud, but quiet when i put the spark arrestor that comes with it in.. although mine is stainless

i love the pipe, it gave me more power and a snappier feel, and alot more low end, and for $400 you cant beat it with a heater
