FYI Ramsey Pipe

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to let any-one know that I put the "Nathan Ramsey Race-Spec E-Series" system on my 02,and it absolutely rips. All kinds of power every-where. I run hare-scrambles and moto-cross in P.A. and I f$#%in love it! And no jetting,and I still run 94 pump gas.

I saw a guy with one at Hungry Valley Saturday, and it was the best sounding 4-stroke I ever heard. I looked up to see where the cool sound was coming from, and there was the dark-gray silencer. I looked for him in the parking lot to ask him about it, but he seemed to disappear. It sounded deeper than most and had a really unique sound. I've heard they make gobs of power. I'd like to give one a try. :)

Rage on!

The pipe is the best addition to the bike overall. White Bros. has their act together with 4 strokes.

I have had my bike for a year and I've held off on buying an exhaust for a year. I just purchased an E series pipe and I can't believe what a difference it has made. It doesn't just wake the bike up it flat out shakes the heck out of it. By far the best bang for the buck. I didn't pay anywhere near retail but it would be worth it even if you had to.

They sell the E series in slip on only now. I picked mine up from the showroom last week and they had more in stock. Trust me the slip on itself is a monster and is only about $300. The sales guy I talked to said that Honda did an awesome job with the stock headpipe and the WB version really only changes looks and not much in performance. Based on track performance he must be right because I can't imagine it getting much faster than it is now.

Mine is an '02 pipe and it's the full exhaust. I purchased it back in late May or early June. I didn't know they started making a slip on. Must be for the '03. My only complaint about the WB head pipe is, no heat shield. I burned a nice big hole in my brand new Fox 360 pants. :)

I don't know if your dealer ordered the slip-on only or what but I just spoke to White Brothers and they only sell the E-Series exhaust ssystem (part #05103) as a set for $749.00. They will sell the tail pipe as a replacement only if you've previously ordered the whole system. How they keep track of that I'm not sure. that's for both the 02' & 03' models. So how did you get yours?? Can the dealer order just the tail pipe?

The race team pipe does not come as a slip-on, the pedestrian E-Series pipes do. This is the best moto pipe for this bike, period. Expensive, yes, but in this case worth it.

I purchased just the slip on (exhaust w/ mid pipe) from the White Bros main showroom (I live 10 min away). It is the factory gun metal grey muffler. They told me that they now sell them by themselves and that retail is $300.I am going there tomorrow and will find out if that indeed is true or if I just got lucky when they sold me mine. By the way I have an '02.

As a note, the 05-103 part number is for the '03, the correct part number for the '02 is 05-100. I haven't called to see if they have those in stock yet, but if I find out, I'll let you know. I don't know what the difference is, but my guess is that the '03 geometry is a little different so the mounting bracketry and perhaps the pipe bend is a little different.

Just got back from White Bros. Part # for the '02 is 05-100x. They are in stock and retail is $295.10. Call direct 714-692-3404.

From a performance standpoint, any thoughts on how the slip-on compares to the full exhaust. I know the WB has an exotic metal matrix composite headpipe, but I don't know if the geometry contributes considerably to the overall power boost of the complete exhaust system.

I was told the slip on itself adds in the range of 5hp and the head pipe adds another 1/2hp. These are approx's.

At what rpm is that supposed increase? Whoever told you that was being misleading...it may add that on the bottom, but it sure doesn't add that to the peak hp like they make it sound. The complete '02 system added 1.9 HP at peak, and boosted the bottom by 3-4 HP.

I am glad they have a much less expensive slip-on...the apparently $450 (749-300) exotic headpipe was wasted on the average rider and that money could be put to better use.

I think that is great that you can get the Ramsey pipe in a slip on. and at not much more than most other slip-ons. I'm glad I waited to get mine. I'm writing that part number down and I'm going to get one

I don't know the rpm range,and the figures were a rough off the top of the head figure form a White Bros employee. Having said that putting on the slip on with just the stock head pipe brought my bike to life. I could care less what the dyno says because on the track it works great. I've ridden '02's with FMF Ti4's, and with Pro Circuit T-4's and the power wasn't as good.

      I just bought a Magura hydraulic clutch for my 2014 CRF450R.  Bought it thinking install would be easy, and I'm not sure that's the case now that I have the product in my hands.  I have searched the forums, YouTube, etc for install help specifically for my model year (2013 and 2014 are same really), and haven't found anything specific for the 2013-2014 model install at all.  Instructions from Magura are TERRIBLE, and are not specific at all to the Honda - generic instructions - so I'm debating if I want to return the product, cuz I don't want trouble or a big install job.  Question: for the 2013-2014 CRF450R install ONLY of a Magura Hymec hydraulic clutch - other model years are different and thus it won't be helpful for other model years - do you have any tips or feedback?  My concerns are below...
      1.  The 2014 model has a sleeve behind the clutch actuation arm that the Magura clutch slave cylinder fits into.  Stock, the sleeve holds one end of the cable, with a nut on the other end to keep the cable end tight in the sleeve.  The Magura slave cylinder, however, slides into the mounting sleeve  - but does NOT have a nut: the tension from the clutch actuation arm pulling on the metal Magura slave cyl tip end is apparently supposed to keep the Magura slave cylinder tight in the mounting sleeve.  Q: Will the Magura slave fit in to the mounting sleeve easily, stay tight, and is there any adjustment needed in order to keep the 4-6mm of freeplay that Magura recommends?  How easy is it to get the Magura slave fitted into the sleeve and the metal tip in place?  Is there enough freeplay between slave and tip end to mount in actuating arm AND the holding sleeve, so that the holding sleeve doesn't need to be unbolted?  
      2. The stock clutch cable and OEM setup runs out of the mounting sleeve (see pics marked "metal starts", and then runs through a metal sleeve that routes the cable through the engine compartment - keeping the cable away from the hot parts of the engine case, so as not to melt the cable insulation (I believe).  That metal sleeve is about 6-8 inches in length.  The Magura clutch cable, on the other hand, exits the Magura slave cylinder at an angle - yet has no such metal routing.  I don't think the OEM metal routing sleeve will accept the Magura cable either, so a) the OEM metal routing sleeve would have to be removed first before installing the Magura - and then b) you have to hope that the Magura cable can be routed in such a way with zip ties holding the hydraulic line that line will not touch or be close to the hot metal engine casing as you route it through the engine.  Q: how easy was it to get the OEM clutch cable and metal routing sleeve out?  Easy as unscrewing the nut on the other end of the OEM cable, on the other side of the black rubber cable flange in my pics?   
      3.  My stock clutch pull isn't bad.  I just like the feel of a hydro clutch.  Any feedback on how much better feeling and easier pull will be with the Magura?  What's your feedback on the difference?  FYI, I'm leaving my clutch plates and springs stock.

      We have a 2016 CRF450R with about 11 hours out. never ridden hard always check the oil and change when needed along with the air filter. Took care of the recall that was required as well. Well when riding the bike was stalled out. Went to try and kick start the bike again. the kick start lever just back up jamming my knee into the handle bars and some how ended up cracking the case right by where the kick start goes through the case. Has any one had this happen or heard of this happening? What is the cause?

      Any advice on what should be replaced while I have the top end off for a valve replacement. Will do headgasket and springs of course, anything other parts you would recommend while I'm going at it?
       
      Thanks!

      The dirtbike is on it's forth year right now on the same motor job. I have to jump start it. Is it worth me trading for a 2009 650 brute force with7000 miles? Need some expert advice. Thanks

      Just wondering what you guys do to remove black marks on your seat. My 08 crf450r has the red/black seat, and after each ride there are some black marks on the red from my riding pants. Not scuff marks, more like patches of black residue from my pants rubbing on the seat. I’ve tried the magic eraser which seemed to do the trick, but lately they seem like they aren’t coming off. Also tried scrubbing bubbles with a brush and no luck. Not too worried cuz I have an spare OEM seat, but I’d like to keep this one nice. Any ideas? Maybe I shouldn’t wear black pants?
