YZ 144 pipe

it's unlikely but has anyone tried the new DEP YZ 144 pipe out? I've been running a FMF factory fatty which has been a good pipe. But it was designed for the 125 the DEP pipe has a longer header length like the KTM 144's. The Stock pipe with the 144 was good but alittle choked off on top the FMF woke it up on top more but it kinda smoothed out the power band alittle. Has proven to be a great combo just wonder how much better the longer header length would do it? DEP was claiming broader power and cooler running temps from the exhaust.

HGS in europe are now making 144 specific pipes!

scroll to the bottom then use the drop down menu. however, the weak dollar would make them very expensive to buy. someone needs to import/distribute them, but they would still be $$$$ given the weak dollar.


I have used DEP pipes in the past on CR and KX 125's, they work really well. The new DEP 144 pipe deserves a look.

I have both the PC and FMF for my YZ 144, the PC has the better top and over rev.

Where did you hear about DEP having a YZ 144 pipe?

DEP had a what's new pic of it a while ago on thier website and it's now part of the catalog. I'd get the DEP before I got the HGS personally. There is a place here in the states the imports DEP stuff. I know all about exchange rates owning 2 rare 2 stroke street bikes from japan/europe :confused:

My DEP pipe for my 06 yz250 makes my pro circuit pipe feel useless. The DEP has better low end, roll on power, about the same midrange and pulls harder on the top end. I did get a good deal on my dep pipe/silencer but if you are looking for a 144 specific pipe I would not be afraid to try them out.

That's weird that you posted this... I've never seen another bike with a DEP pipe on it.. I don't think i've even met somebody that knows what they are..

I have the 144 in my bike with the DEP pipe and I can say its strong for a 125... well 144 but you know what i mean?

I just got in from taking it for a spin and I'm not gonna lie it scared me a few times, haha!

I would be going from snow, with the revs up like mid second to PINNED 3rd and wheelie right before the jump... this thing definitely has some kick!

Anybody wanna buy a sweet 2002 YZ 144?? $1500 and it's yourS!

So, WAMXP1MP, what kind of exotic porn do you possess? Please don't tell me that you have one of those 2-cyl., 2-stroke dual-purpose (TDX??? 250) streetbikes!

I own a '91 suzuki RGV 250 and I recently accuired a '90 Honda NSR 250 but she is still a bit of a project right now. I have a pic under my garage on here of the RGV look under RM 250. My friend has an '87 yamaha TZR 250 which the TDR you speak of was based off of. He also has an '85 RZ 500 and another has an '85 RG (gamma) 500. I love the way they sound nothing sounds sweeter then hearing 4 125 cylinders run at once.

I'm positive they do the parts catalog might be outdated thier website even had a pic of it on a YZ 125 on a dyno setup at one point and they was claiming it had a longer header length to improve power and to help cool the exhaust bridge.

I called the DEP distributor and left a message, no return call:bonk:

when i looked at the DEP stuff last night, all pipes were listed 125/144 with the same part number, apart from the ktm144.

Well the parts # also says '02 + this 144 pipe was for 05 + models. I guess an email directly to the source is in order.

      Hey guys, 
      I've used this forum as a "guest" for awhile now and I thought I'd share my build now that it's all coming together.  The primary purpose of this project is to help me train for roadracing my 2009 R1 at lower speeds as well as giving me a cheap alternative to racing the big bike. 
      Here's what she looked like when I picked it up from a local shop.  Paid $800 cash for the bike as you see it with 17' rims, FMF pipe, EBC 250mm front rotor and clip on handle bars.

      Fits PERFECT!

      Shake down run at the Herrin Compound last summer:

      As she sits today:

      i bought my yz125 from a dealer and they said that the clutch was broken so i bought it and it worked fine it would run move and everything and then it started to act up and now only first gear works barely though. when you put it in first it acts like its bogging down but its not and when you go into gears 2-5 it wont move i dont know whats wrong with it im assuming the clutch is slipping or something if you know please leave me a comment

      Hey guys, I have a 2003 cr125 I bought a couple weeks ago and I'm having a problem with it. The spark plugs die every about 15 minutes, with hotter plugs it will last about 45 minutes. I herd that if the timing is off it can over heat the plugs and burn out the the resistor. Is there any truth to that? The reason I thinks it's not fouling is because when the plug dies it gives no spark no matter how much you clean it, And it shorts out.

      Hi all, First post here. I need some help.
      Ive just bought an 05 yz 125 for a good price but it needs some work. One of the forks has some pretty severe pitting of the chrome on the stanchion towards the bottom near the brake caliper mount.
      Ive found a pair of good condition forks from an 04 yz250 for a very good price, from the research ive done its seems that both the 04 & 05 forks are 48mm but are different, with the 05 fork regarded as being better than the 04, but not as good as the 06 + sss forks.
      Im looking for the cheapest way to get me riding, Will I be able to make the 04 forks work with my 05 triple clamps, brakes, wheel, axle, spacers etc? If not does anyone know what hardware id need to make it work?
      Finally, as a last resort, does anyone know if i could swap the stanchion from the 04 fork into my 05 forks?
      Thanks, Andrew

      I bought a 2006 YZ250, have ridden it 5 times.  It needs some tuning, but I am not sure I'm keeping it so don't want to spend much on it.
      Has fmf gnarly expansion chamber and turbine core silencer.
      I ride about 1000 feet above sea level.
      I'm going to clean the carb and check the jetting.  What is a good jetting for me?  85 main jet?
      Also check the reeds.  Is there a big difference between getting aftermarket reed cage and reeds or just getting a cheap aftermarket set of reeds that fit the stock cage ie.  Boyesen Power Reeds?
      The other things I'm going to do is permatex all the joints in the exhaust system and a compression test.   It was 220psi 5 rides ago so I'm guessing itll be fine.  Its bogging a bit but I'm thinking its carb and definitely exhaust joint related.  
      Let me know if I'm overlooking anything that could make the bike run crisper and more bottom end without throwing much money on parts
