03-04 pro circuit exhaust flange?

Recommended Posts

Any info on these. The only thing I see is that the 03-04 stock flanges have casting flaws and may break? Is there any performance to be had from these pro circuits?

No performance gains just a stronger design vs. the stock oem unit.

Thanks. Is it something I should consider changing? I imagine if the stocker broke while the motor was running it could cause some serious damage. How often do these things break?

I don't think it could cause seriuos engine damage but you'll have an exhaust leak. I've seen people post of them breaking but don't think it's common. If your going to change it I'd recomend the Boyesen unit it's stronger as well & offers slight gains off the bottom vs. the oem.

I can't imagine the stock flange breaking on it's own, it's a pretty hearty peice of steel. I did break mine from smashing the pipe into a stump, but mind you the impact was hard enough to wrap an FMF Gnarly around the frame.

I considered replacing it with the Boyeson unit as some people swore it made a difference. After looking over the OEM flange I have a hard believing there could be much difference, especially given the price difference.

I shut my bike down right after I realized the pipe was no longer connected to the cylinder, and no damage resulted, other than the flange and pipe being destroyed.

When i pulled my pipe off mine was cracked in 2 places.(I bought the bike used)

I bought a Pro Circuit flange and it seems like its alot stronger(thicker) then the OEM unit.For about the same price as OEM I'd get the Pro Circuit one and be done with it.

If it matters,I have not had any leaking where the pipe joins the flange so right off the bat I know it seals better.

BTW,good luck trying to find a Boyseen one,I dont think they make them asnymore.

I ordered one directly from Boyesen last year, not sure if they still sell them.

Whew $85! I guess I'll stick with my stocker until it breaks. Thanks for the info though.

Boyesen still sells them, I just bought one about a month ago. http://boyesen.com/exhaust-flange-1.html

Sorry my bad,I had read somewhere(maybe here) they were not available anymore :thumbsup: Non the less seems a little pricey for a flange that most likely wont do much.

      Kicking around the idea of selling my CR250. I have other bikes and never get a chance to ride this one.

      This is a well-maintained bike with tons of aftermarket parts. It's set up primarily for woods/single-track riding, but will still do just fine on an MX track.

      Engine:
      -Fresh Pro-X top end(<1 hour)
      -FMF Gnarly pipe & FMF Shorty silencer(<1 hour on fresh packing)
      -PWK Air-Striker Carburetor(bought new from JD Jetting last year)
      -Steahy 10oz. Flywheel Weight
      -Boyesen Rad Valve with Carbon-fiber reeds
      -TwinAir air filter

      Misc:
      -Excel Pro-Series Wheels(19"/21")
      -Brand-new Shinko tires(546 Front, 505 Cheater Rear not mounted yet) w/ Heavy-duty tubes
      -Works Connection Radiator Guards
      -Skid Plate
      -FMF Factory 909 Handlebars
      -Polished Frame
      -Sunstar 13/51 Steel Sprockets(new in box)

      I'm sure I'm missing a few odds and ends. Comes with a Bill of Sale only. (708)287-1998 - Dave

      Hello,
      I could not seem to find a similar thread so if one exists I apologize. I have an 02 cr250r with an 01 motor. I need to buy a new silencer with a spark arrestor because the current one does not have one. I am not sure if the owner before me used an 01 or 02 silencer because I have read the frame had significant changes from 01 to 02. Any thoughts? Thanks!

      I want to restore a 1996 cr80 that doesn’t have any graphics and absolutely love the 1994 cr125r tank shroud graphics, I can’t seem to find anything that fits the cr80 with those graphics. I found one last week but lost the page and couldn’t track it down again, do the cr125r graphics fit the cr80 tank shrouds? or does anyone know where someone could make them for cheap or know about any in Australia

      Hey guys,
       
      Could someone please explain the numbers on a needle jet for a mikuni carb?  I'm currently running a 38-73 needle but a lot of the people I talk to say I would be happier running a 38-70 needle.  I don't have a problem with going with what other recommend but I would like to understand the numbering for the needles first.  I understand the nozzle sizes, main jet and pilot jet it's just this damn needle thingamobob
       
      Thanks a lot
