YZ 144 pipe

Recommended Posts

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.

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