I am getting a new pipe/silencer for my 2006 YZ 450. I am in between FMF Factory 4 Carbon and Ti power bomb or DrD stainless. Does anyone have any advice on which is better?

They are both good. You'll pay a lot less for the Dr. D stainless. You might also want to consider the fact that Dr. D was a key in the development of the YZ450 itself. They have really good customer service too.

They're both excellent, but the FMF will be lighter and more fragile. The DRD is a rugged piece that weighs the about what the stock system does. The header is heavier, and the silencer lighter, though, so the weight is carried lower.

I can't picture how you are stuck between an exhaust that costs $500 and one that costs $1000, somehow.

if thos are my options i would be getting the dr.d..

They are both used, in great shape, and priced within a $100 of each other. I am leaning towards the DR.D for durability

i have the fmf 4.1 ti slip on and had the dr.d carbon complete and i love them both but for the price yeah u cant beat the dr.d

Id prolly go with the DRD.. but the only thing i dont like about the DRD is the header.. it sits way too low and dosent look right..but its still a great exhaust

DR. D.... I've seen a handful of local racers with streamers coming from the back. Is this something that is a common issue or is it because of the high volume of bikes with them that there is a higher likelyhood of seeing a few with packing blowing out?

The packing blows out of all of them. The DRD packing just looks different.

      Hey guys I just bought a bike last night. So the seller said the bike will turn on but then die. We didn't try it because it was really late at night and it was raining (seat was wet). But he said if you bump start it, it will turn on and ride. So what do you think the problem is? I just want to make sure it runs... I probably won't be able to bump start it till Saturday (rain)... It's a four stroke, and I know absolutely nothing about them. Thanks.

      I could use some feedback, My son is getting into off road riding so I have starting getting back into it as well.  We mostly do trail riding but did some MX track riding last year and he loved it andso did I.  I have a 2003 TTR 225, it's nice that it has an electric start but the suspension is too soft and it doesn't have enough power for my liking.  When I was riding the MX track I was having issues bottoming out on the larger jumps.  I want to change to a more off-road capable bike.   I won't ride it much and don't want to spend a lot of money, I think I prefer a 2 stroke, when I was younger, in 1990, I raced an 89 RM250 and loved it.  I am looking at a 96 RMX 250  and a 98 YZ400F, both bikes look to be in good condition and around a thousand dollars.  I like the RMX because I think kicking a 2 stroke 250 should be easier than a 4 stroke 400 and the simplicity of the 2 stroke engine.  The 400 sounds good because of the low end torque I assume it has but the cost of rebuilding the 4 stroke if needed worries me and I have heard they are hard to start. Should the RMX be decent for an occasional trip to an MX park?  Any thoughts on these two bikes?

      Brand new, still in the packaging Lexx end cap fits the stock muffler of 2006 & 2007 YZ450f and 06-13 YZ250f. Comes with a forest service approved spark arrestor and two different size tips. Don't spend hundreds of dollars on a slip on, this tip can be quiet and forest legal or loud and make power! Also a note for WR450 guys: get this tip and find a used 06/07 YZ muffler, fits directly on 09-15 WR450. $80 shipped free to the lower 48. PM, call or text 406-223-8789

      So I have a 2008 yz450f and I would like to add some LED lights to it to make it street legal. Mainly just a headlight and a tail light and turn signals if I need to (which where I live hand signals work).
      So where I need help is getting power from the stator to a battery. Wiring from a battery to anything else I got and understand and don't need help with (but recommendations are welcome). So my questions are.
      What type of power is coming from the stator. AC or DC? Will I need a regulator or rectifier? How do I wire something from the stator to charge a battery? What would that wiring look like? Would this stator work? Anything else I should know? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
