looking for an answer

I have an 05 crf 250x and I just hate the fact it sounds like an air compressor lol So my question is what can I do to give it a more "throaty" sound I've been looking for an r exhaust but no luck so far. I need something that will still leave it with a spark arrestor. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

04R or 05R stock exhaust can with a Promotobillet insert (with spark arrestor). It will take a little work replace the insert but it looks good, inexpensive and well worth it, IMHO. Try searching it.

I have the X exhaust though. On the website it doesn't give one listed for an X.

I'm not sure what you mean....the 2004 or 2005 250R exhaust will fit on your bike. I just read your first post and it looks like you are looking for one. That's definitely a good way to go. They are out there...sometimes people just have them in their garage and would sell them if if offered. Sometimes just posting about one turns one up. Good luck finding one.

Go to rick ramsey's site. Drill out the stock X exhaust diffuser. Keeps the spark arrestor, keeps it quiet enough to keep the rangers and neighbors happy, but opens it up and gives it a better sound.

Plus its FREE!!!

i have my diffuser drilled out and it sounds pretty good IMO

FREE is good and worth a shot. I moved on to an R exhaust and never messed with the X exhaust.

I'm in the same boat... looking for an aftermarket exhaust to help the bike breathe better and seen a lot of people suggest getting an 250R exhaust.

I have an '04 250X... when people suggest putting a 250R exhaust on, I assume they mean the '04 250R Single exhaust... not the newer style dual can setup? Will a 250R header and mid pipe also fit? Won't the 250R exhaust open up the top end some but reduce performance of the bottom end? I ride trails and mostly bottom to mid end of the throttle.

anyone know about this?

I was going to put the R exhaust on it but it has no S/A so I can't.

if your willing to go aftermarket i would go with the dr.d full system. it is super light, sounds phenominal, and adds makes the power band so much better! i dont have to spark arrester in mine and i got used w/o the spark arrester so i'm not sure if it comes with one new? but i've heard of many people getting the r exhaust and being very happy.

the R exhaust takes away a bit of your bottom end but ads to the midrange and top end,well actually thats only if you use the R head pipe as its a bit bigger in diameter

Yes, both the 2004 and 2005 250R exhaust fits on all models of 250X. Not the newer dual can setup. Yes, the 2004 and 2005 250R header will fit the 250X too but you will lose some low end grunt. If you want a free flowing exhaust but keep the low end, then keep the 250X header and add the 250R can.

That's why we add the Promotobillet endcap to the 250R exhaust can...it has the sparky.

But its also 130 bucks I mean for that price plus the can why don't I just buy a new pro-circuit or FMF can with a sparky.

Well, since I bought my R header and can for $70 shipped and the promotobillet for $115 and then sold my R header for $20....that comes out to $165 total. I haven't seen many aftermarket exhausts remotely close to that price. It wasn't worth it to me to spend $300-$500 for an aftermarket can that does the exact same thing as the R can does.

Your thinking like I am. Out of curiosity where did you sell your header at? TT?

Yeah, in the TT classifieds but that was about 2 years ago.
