Got my Thunder Alley Today.....

Got my new Thunder Alley pipe today for my YZ450. Ceramic coating looks really nice. I also got the race core and the new Quiet spark arrestor core. Sound test this weekend.



Looks pretty Cool!! How does it fit? And how much do they

cost? Like your Black rims.

BC3 :)

Very Nice....I get mine in about four more weeks...

looks like bobs pipes are looking better. i remebr seing the firts one he made for a 250f thinking" man that is ugly" new ones look much better.



Nice looking pipe! For some reason I thought you would have the pipe coated in black ceramic. I can't wait to hear your ride report.


I like the new endcap looks good.You need tony to come over and do a db test at home.If it is quiet i may need to get one. :)

What ya gonna do with the stocker?

You need tony to come over and do a db test at home

The only problem with Tony's meter is he dont have an RPM meter, and I dont think he set it up on the "A" scale yet.

I just got done installing it, fits like a glove and looks nice. Quiet?? I dont know about that. I just started it up and it sounds awsome! But 96db im not too sure about that. Stab the throttle and it's BRAAAAAPPPP!!! but when I hold it steady it seems somewhat quieter than stock. I guess we will see this weekend.

I didnt know there was an option to have it coated black, Im not sure I would have even done that, It blends well with the headder this way.

Mine is coated black with an aluminum colored end. Ran it at Daytona on the shorttrack...worked awsome. 158 mainjet is where it made the most HP on the dyno with a K&N filter in the modified airbox. Headwork with stock cams.

Hi Heckler,

I am very interested if you can reach 96 db rating for off road riding with the new rules in place. I like the Thunder Alley reviews I have seen on this YZ forum. Thanks for letting us know how your sound test goes.

      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.
