Yoshimura RS-4 Full System 2009 crf 450

Recommended Posts

I have heard nothing but good things about the Yosh system. I personally have the Pro Circuit TI-4R system on my '09, and love it. The top end and overrev with this pipe is far improved over stock, which I think it needed in a big way. I'm sure you can't go wrong with most any of these pipes on the

'09, as I think it needs one!

i have used the yosh and the pro circuit. I just switched to PC Ti4r it does have great top end, but it gives up some low end in comparision to the yosh. I bought another yosh pipe yesterday. The mid on the yosh is superior. The PC pipe is SUPER DUPER quiet however. Surprisingly quiet. And quick for such a quiet pipe. I doubt if the yosh would be that fast with the 94db insert. The pipe diameter on the PC is a little larger than the yosh.

My Ti/Ti RS-4 is still waiting to be mounted. I simply haven't had the time to put everything back together yet. It is a work of art however - very well put together for what that is worth. Sharpest/cleanest manufacturing that I've had on an aftermarket exhaust yet - I've had Pro Circuit, White Brothers, FMF. This is the best LOOKING from a engineering/manufacturing view.

Comes complete with a custom Yoshi wash plug & sticker kit. Nice touch.

No comment on performance yet but soon I hope.

I have a stock pipe and I smoke guys with a full yosh. Every weekend.

So I have had good results with the stock pipe

Red out of the Yosh and the PC which would you feel would be better for the novice rider since you used both and have seat of the pants feel. i know your pro speed but for a slower guy?

Prob the PC pipe. It gives up some low end compared to the yosh, great for throttle control if you havent got an easy wrist the yosh will blow out berms really easily. PC pipe you dont have to shift as much it just revs forever. I just like all the power I can get Im 6'4" and 205 with no gear on.

BTW, I have that PC Ti4R pipe for sale, only got one ride on it. PM me if you're interested.

I got the Yosh full ti system. I noticed increased off idle pull and greater over rev. I have to have Eddie remap for the new pipe, as it is leaner now then with the stocker.

Like H Bomb I'm 6'3" 205 I need all the hp I can get. I'm happy with what the Yosh did for me.

There is another link that I gave my 1st impression of the Yoshi RS-4 exhaust. Here is the link: http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=749633

I can now elaborate on that impression though. I did drop one tooth on the rear sprocket to allow for better throttle control due to the huge gain in HP and torque. It is AWESOME now! The smaller rear sprocket now allows for the throttle control but because the YOSH added so much more power in the mid and top end, it can still pull each gear better. There was also an article in the latest MXA which gave some dyno data. I took that data and graphed it if anyone is interested (see below). The graph is just a little scewed because MXA only did readings at certain RPM's so the actual peak horsepower is very close to the Pro Circuit. IMO you can't go wrong with either the PC or Yosh systems but if you like low end and midrange, the Yosh appears to be better. The max HP is slightly higher on the PC (PC = 54.9, Yosh = 54.3) but gives up a little low and mid.

Haven't seen that graph before. Very eery that the FMF and Yoshi are carbon-copies of one another on the Dyno. Same for the DRD and Y&H. Seems odd that they are so exact. PC is the differentiated one but might primarily benefit the faster riders.

I need to get my RS-4 mounted and out on the track for spring. DAMN the job and I need to get the family to coorperate!

I did the graph using just the raw dyno data that MXA provided. Watch me get hit with some bogus plagiarism (had to look up that word) suit.

Look at the DB ratings for all the pipes.The Yosh is the only one over 100db.If you put an insert in it to makle it the same as the FMF or PC i wonder how the performance would be affected?

Yoshimura has a insert that makes it 94db but they clame no power loss but we all know thats hard to belive

More like impossible to believe.

MDK did some exhaust testing and said that the Yosh with the insert in did not perform as well as the PC or FMF with there inserts in.I wonder how the FMF would run without the insert?

I have just the RS-4 s/o with a map from Eddie and noticed a considerable difference from mid to top over the stock set up. This is with no insert whatsoever though, and yes, it is loud as hell.

      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?
