Read on here the other day you need to change the midpipe to subframe mount. The guy said he just welded a nut in the right place to the midpipe, pretty easy really and a good simple idea.

chop 10mm of the back end of the mid pipe. thats how i got my 03-06 fmf pipe to bolt up on the stock mounts. no welding required

I ride a honda, so I don't really know how it's all gonna mount up. But if you're gonna be chopping away at the pipe you might wanna consider using a pipe cutting instead of a hack saw.

They should both work good. Just the pipe cutting is a very clean, straight cut.

one looks like this:

I've used one of these babies on my handlebars and it turned out great.

i have a huge mitre band saw that will cut straight and clean through it, and are the stock midpipe connected permenantly to the stock muffler?

I think the 05 muffler will fit onto the 02 header without any mods. In 05, Yamaha still used steel frames, and I believe that the exhaust didn't change much until '06 on the YZ, '07 on the WR.

i got it and it fits but with some intense grinding and rewelding. factory welds are freakin overkill!!!!!!!
