I've had one for about 6 Months :ride: Had to drill the side panel though as the pipe would not let if fit properly!

I was running a HGS long pipe before, It is a slightly longer pipe than stock though mines a european model so the pipe is probably quite a bit longer than the u.s model, YZ's like long pipes theres no secrets there but i wouldn't say there was a massive increase it is a silencer after all, It seems to be fairly quiet and i haven't had to repack as yet, I didn't rejet either as the bike was already setup for a long pipe. You'll probably notice most YZ pipes look on the piss when looked at from behind, this look's dead straight which is the nuts in my opinion! the downside of this is for the rear mount is a 20mm spacer to keep it straight and give it wheel clearance, this caused a problem for me as it meant the silencer was holding the side panel off the bike around 15mm, the only way i could get over this was to drill a 20mm hole in the side panel to bring the bolt through, but as the mounting kit is so nicely made it didn't bother me. The pipe is Stainless Steel so the front of the pipe does not rust! However be vary carefull mounting the carbon straps as you can mark the glossy silencer finish quite easily however i havent notice any marks from usage with it as yet. Do you want some pics?

A little at time's but certainly not excessive! but thats probably down to my jetting just been into the shed so give me two mins and they will be on, just noticed after removing the side panel its developed a small half moon shape from panel rub as most silencers have and the white tape on the lower mount was me trying to prevent it lower down, however the top didnt seem to need it but it obviously did!

I ha d mine imported from italy btw!!

I like the look, but I'm waiting until DrD put his stuff out there. I believe his pieces will be the best due to his extensive knowledge of the yz 250....probably no one knows more...from his testing background.

With that, I just bought a Leo Vince for my streetbike. Nice stuff and great quality.

I agree a DrD would definitely be a nice piece, do you know when thats happening?

looks sweet. thanks for the pics man! i ordered one earlier. $184 shipped. man i have a problem with dirt bike parts! i think the only way to get them in the states is if you call leo vince directly. probably much easier on your side of the pond.

I would love to hear a review and how its stacks up against the q-stealth :ride::worthy:[/quote

will do. i love my q stealth. my only complaint is short packing life. leo claims 50 hours between repacks. i might get 15 out of my stealth.

rodgini: are you running the stock pipe with the Leo??

i just ordered it but will run the gnarly for single track and the stocker for gnccs and mx which is what i currently do now with the stealth. i have a backyard mx track/trails so quiet is super important. hence the no 4-stroke rule @ my house:banana:

      Ok so I'm looking for opinions from those who have been on yz125s and 150 exc/xcw's and maybe the ktm 200's exc/xcw's. You gotta be out there.
      Here's the deal...I'm 5'7" 165lbs. A couple years back I was looking for a small bike for my wife to learn on and for me to play around with and race. Could only afford one bike. I got a '09 ktm 105 sx. Once I got it sprung for my weight it was great. I have been top five consistently in my local harescrambles B class, believe it or not. Ya, you were not the only ones shocked. And did pretty good in the local mx races as well, junior class up here in Canada. Lack of power was sometimes an issue but I learned to deal with it and just scream, scream, scream!
      However my wife is a complete beginner and she is scared of it. I have since moved her to a 4 stroke.
      Just got a mint '01 yz15 mid summer. Like less than 200 hrs! I have absolutely loved it on the mx track. Suspension is perfect and I love the extra power. I had planned to set it up for woods/mx with a suspension revalve. However, did a harescramble race a month ago that was really technical. Granted I have not done anything to the suspension minus clickers, had too much psi in the tires (13 front and 15 rear) (yes I know that's wonkey, I only had time to get a heavy duty tube in the front and had a stock tube in back. Less psi in the back would have been instant pinch flat because its so rocky) and it was running rich. I had to scream the thing to keep it running and even changed a plug mid race. Well I'm sure you can guess but it was the worst experience I have ever had on a motorcycle. The more open sections I passed a lot of people but the tech sections required way more effort than I liked and the suspension beat the hell out of me!!! Like my knees, wrists, and shoulders were just done. (I was out there for three hours).
      So keep in mind that I just came off a 105sx with suspension mods (set up for woods/mx). I have no problem slipping clutch and shifting precisely, yatta yatta. (I don't think the 105 would have done well here either due to even less power, however...) I've been second guessing fixing this 125 up for woods ever since I rode a friends '09 ktm 250xcw. I rode it on a local mx track. The power was just so effortless and I was absolutely floored by how the suspension worked. I never thought that I could hit the woops that hard and clear every jump on the track on an xcw and feel THAT good! It felt a lot heavier though, and I think the price tag on these things are going to be a stretch.
      So here's my question. I want the lightness of a 125, but want to be able to race both woods and mx. How does a 150 exc/xcw ENGINE compare to an mx 125 engine? I love the 125 engine, but more low end would be usefull in tech areas. But if there is not a huge difference, I will probably just revalve the yz for woods and go tubless, etc. The 150exc's are so expensive and I hardly ever even see one for sale unless its brand new. I don't want the weight of a 200/250/300. I barely touch the ground on a 125....so it has to at least be light. Is it worth waiting for a 150 engine? Thanks guys.

      Hi guys I have a 2018 yz250 looking at changing springs front and rear I'm 200 pound ride b class moto.
      Having problems choosing spring weights using the calculators as mx tech say I need .45 fork springs and 5.2 rear but racetech say .48kg forks and 5.8kg rear.
      What are other bigger guys

      Hey TT, I know there's endless topics on YZ250/ two stroke tuning in general but I have not been able to find one that helps me get my 09 YZ250 set up for my riding style and where I ride so I'm here asking for help. I got this bike around 1.5 years ago and have not known how to set it up properly. I know no one can give me a perfect set up but I'd like a good starting setup to work from and tweak to perfection. Throughout this time I've had this bike, its always been covering the bottom of the entire silencer and dripping all over the swing arm and rims with oil. Also, the joint between silencer and expansion pipe has oil around it too but I've heard I have to close the gap a little to squeeze the silencer a little tighter and stop the leakage there. I don't have too much experience messing with carbs but I've messed around with previous two strokes and tuned them a little better. I change the oil on my bike after 15-20 hours on it and clean and oil the air filter after almost every ride. The sparkplugs never last me more than a few months but recently have been lasting me no more than a few weeks. With the excess oil from the pipe and spark plug fouling you can see why I need to set my bike up to stop this. 
      The bike:
      Completely stock with V-Force 3 Reeds and a FMF Shorty silencer. 
      Usually running around 32:1 premix with 91 pump fuel because I prefer to keep it well lubricated instead of running rich.
      Riding:
      I ride enduro in Ontario, Canada. So mostly single track and some fire roads but nothing close to MX and not a lot of time wide open. Therefore, probably mostly 1/4-1/2 or 1/4-3/4 throttle range.
      Where I ride:
      Usually 0-500' above sea level. With temperatures ranging from around 15-35 degrees Celsius (55-95 Fahrenheit).
       
      If anyone can give me a setup to go from, that would be very much appreciated. Even multiple set ups for different temperature ranges or any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks and sorry for the long read, I just didn't want to leave anything out. Ask any questions if you have any, too.

      Hey guys... so I have a problem... I took the bike at Cal City, broke it in, and while I was doing so, the bike was bogging in first gear (Yes, first gear). Also it doesn't idle at all. I have to keep blipping it otherwise it'll stall. So I adjusted the screw circled in image 1. Well I was listening to the sound of the of the bike, yet the rpm's weren't increasing, and it was still stalling. So then, I unscrewed the screw in image 2, well I found out that it was fully twisted to the right. So then, I twisted it to the left, still nothing; it was still stalling... where's the idle screw? I am sure that the screw in image 1 is for the air/fuel mixture screw, and the screw in image 2 is the idle screw, just broken? I don't know, any and every help would be appreciated.
