Yoshimura trs comp

I have a crf250 w/ stock exhaust but its dented now, i was thinking Dr. D next, but i saw the yoshimura trs comp, with a carbon slip cover that looked pretty nice, has anyone ever ran one with there crf250r?

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.

i know people that have the yosh pipes, and they are LOUD, good pipes but a bit noisy for my taste

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


and my photobucket account for more pictures


te250lover, are you running the R off road?

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.

Isnt the yosh trs Comp, carbon model not even a carbon exhaust? i read its just like a slip cover over aluminum but im not sure?

The pro model is a full carbon canister with ti piping.

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 i have the 250r for offroad. I love the bike, but have spent a lot on it. I have on order or already have the following

rooster performance:

1. skid plate...................$75

2. rad guards.................$75

Yosh comp slip on...........$350

cycra handguards............$108

on the way:

clarke 3.0 gallon tank........$180

suspension mods by leigh letellier...$275

plus springs

total is appx. 1200 bucks...ouch i just figured that out, but after that i have everything i need!!

i have around 2200 into my bike, but it was all worth it in the end :naughty:

i hope it's all worth it...but it should...lol

so the yoshi comp aluminum would be better in the long run than the carbon fiber?

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.

Hold up...carbon yoshi will just get dented like your stock pipe. Get a Procircuit Ti-4 Exhaust...it can kick some ace :banghead:

I've crashed several times on that side and been through many a rocks and have no dents as of yet.

get the akrapovic exhaughst it ROCKS!!!!!!!

good quality and it isn't toooooo loud :lol::banghead::banghead::lol:


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

      Jeremy Martin Leads the Charge for Wiseco Riders at Daytona Supercross
      Christian Craig Turns in Career Best in 450 Competition
      MENTOR, Ohio (March 13, 2018) – Jeremy Martin showed the way for Wiseco-sponsored riders in Saturday night’s Monster Energy Daytona Supercross presented by Honda. In a season marred by bad luck and misfortune, Martin put together a near flawless ride to earn his first Eastern Regional 250SX Class podium finish of the season.
      Martin qualified eighth for the division’s annual visit to the World Center of Racing, finished fourth in his heat race, and came home second in the 250SX main event, missing his first win of the year by less than a second.

      “It’s Daytona, a real man’s track.” said Martin who sits fourth in points. “It was the toughest race of the year as far as fitness. I had to slow down a little bit, halfway through the main. I was getting close to (race winner) Jordon (Smith) and I was starting to think about where I could make a move on him, then I made some mistakes and he got away from me. Couldn’t quite get close again, but it’s good. We’re on the podium and in contention for wins again. That’s something I haven’t been able to say in supercross in a while. We want to get wins and now we know it’s coming.”
      Martin’s podium was a bright spot, but the rest of the event was rough for the GEICO Honda/Factory Connection squad. RJ Hampshire crashed hard in his heat race and had to be transported to a local hospital. He injured his back and ribs, but shoulder pain left him with the most concern.
      “I felt good on the bike all day,” said Hampshire via his Instagram account. “Had some pretty good speed and my foot just slid off hitting my shifter in those rollers during that heat race. After seeing the pictures from the crash I’m very thankful I didn’t take a shot to my head. I have some fractures in my T3/T4 in my back and ribs. Also have some damage to my lungs which is why I’ll be spending a couple nights in the hospital. I’ll be getting some more checkups this week on the shoulder also.”
      Cameron McAdoo, the third member of the team, was unable to compete at Daytona after being sidelined with a hand injury two races ago in Atlanta.
      Across the paddock, in the premier 450SX Class, Christian Craig got the call to fill in for Team Honda HRC. With the team’s regular riders Ken Roczen and Cole Seely out with injuries, it was up to Craig to carry the load for the factory team, and the upstart rider didn’t disappoint.
      The San Diego native was solid in both qualifying sessions, won his heat race and snagged the holeshot in the division’s main event. After relinquishing the lead to eventual winner Justin Brayton, Craig continued to show he was up for the challenge. The 26-year-old rider raced for second and third for most of the 20-minute-plus-one-lap feature before losing one more spot in the late goings to bring his No. 32 Honda CRF450R home fourth in the final rundown.

      “I had a great week testing with the team,” commented Craig. “They came down to Florida right after Atlanta and I feel like we really improved. Just getting more time on the bike and getting more comfortable was huge. I started off race day feeling really good. My qualifying position didn’t really show it, but overall I was happy with my riding. It’s all about having fun out there, and man, that’s what I did tonight. I was up front in the heat race, fell to third, but then the two guys in front took each other out so I ended up winning. You can call it luck or whatever, but I just put myself in a good position to capitalize on people’s mistakes."
      “I had a good gate pick and some confidence going into the main. I grabbed the holeshot and led for almost the first lap, but [Justin] Brayton got by me pretty quick. I stayed second for quite a while. I just rode my hardest and did my best. Unfortunately, a couple guys got by me so I ended up fourth. The track was so tough. This is only my second time racing Daytona and last year didn’t go well, so I really wanted to get some revenge this year. It’s better than the week before, but man, I was so close to a podium. I just need to keep putting myself in good positions and work on getting better each weekend.”
      Monster Energy AMA Supercross rolls on this weekend when the series visits the “Gateway to the West” for its annual race at the Dome at America’s Center in St. Louis. The 11th of 17 races on the 2018 supercross calendar will be televised live on FS1 Saturday, March 17, beginning at 8 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, 5 p.m. Pacific.

      Hi all,
      My main question is how can I make my 250r more reliable. I have owned it for 2 years and it was spent about 1 year in the shed probably needing new valves and piston rings (i have been putting it off) Will steel valves last longer and work well in the engine? Also, what are your thoughts of me selling it and buying something newer? is it worth it?

      I checked the valve clearance on my 06 crf250r and both exhaust valves is at .007 and the intake is (left side) .005 and (right side) .000??? idk my feeler gague only went down to .002 and it would not slide in.
      Is that ok for the exhaust? Do I need to just shim the right side on the intake? or does both need shimming?
