02 vs 05 pipe

Recommended Posts

What kind of gains should i expect if i were to install a 05 stock pipe in place of my stock 02 pipe? is it worth it?

02=05...I dont think there is much of a pipe difference, if any.

Late 05 to present seams to give more low to mid and about the same top. One of the guys here discovered the new pipe late in 05, but its probably better to look at 06 just to be sure of gettign a new one.

We're talking 250cc here right?

I did put a 2005 pipe on my 2002 and felt a difference.

The 2005 pipe was a little better in the lower mid-range. The 2002 pipe was smoother delivery, but didn't get me out of corners as well. I liked both of those better than the FMF SST.

There's really almost zero difference between the 2005 and the 2010 pipes I have. Visually there's none. They appear to be made from the same stampings, etc.

I've read on this forum that they added a little length to the headpipe, so it's like adding a spacer to the 2005 pipes.
