i am 99.9% sure the newest sparks exhaust will clear the kickers....

the first ones that were out i know would not... last week when i got a new shipment of sparks exhausts in i compared it to a yfz thats at the shop with the older sparks on it.... the newest ones in appear to sit about 1/4 of an inch closer to the motor where the kicker would be... which should give enough room for the kicker to clear.

The Jardine which pretty much won the exhaust shoot out for the YZ 450 in dirt bike rider. Daddog just got one. Also the GYT-R stuff works which you allready know.


BTW.. I really like your photo.. what moutain range is that in the background? can you ride in the mountians up there during the summer?

the best pipe we have found is the JARDINE pipe, it weighs 5.5 pounds, that is lighter than the GYTR titanium! and it puts out more power and it has EXCEPTIONAL clearance of 4 inches! and it also has something no other pipe has!

in has a small insert that fits inside the pipe with ONE SCREW that drops your DB to around 92!

that is the loudest pipe with the most power we ever ran, and as soon as Whitedog blows up his GYTR carbon fiber we will be buying another Jardine pipe


exceptinal pipe

the YOSHI weighs 10.5 pounds the GYTR carbon fiber weighs 7 pounds and the JARDINE weighs 5.5 pounds and the Jardine only costs 450 bucks or so
very nice!
it has excellent top end from 6000 to 1000 and will put yo over 50 hp.

it won the pipe shootout for the best pips for the YZ450 dirtbike.


here is how perfectly it fits our kickstarter!

Alaska YFZ

If your interested in a carbon GYT-R with GYT-R header I'll sell you mine for $325 or $340(including Fed Ex shipping to Alaska). This would include new replacement packing for the exhaust also.

The earliest I could ship would be the week of Feb 2 since I would have to remove it and my bike is sitting in Phoeniz right now.

I appreciate the offer.....I'll have to think it over for sure. Any pics? What kind of time is on it/condition? Thanks, JIM

I've got roughly 20 or so hours on the Carbon can and 40 or so on the header. Yamaha replaced the first cabon can due to flaws.

Condition wise it is like new, since I will be replacing the packing and rubber clamp straps before selling it to ensure that the buyer received a "like new" product. The actual carbon is fine. I can take full pictures of it prior to sale if required.

The only negative with the carbon is that you have to change the packing every 25 hours or so. With the other material (aluminum) it isn't as critical.

I am selling it because the Jardine wasn't out when I purchased my first exhaust and that is the one I want.

If you not interested,, no problem,, I planned on putting it on EBAY anyway.

Why is repacking the muffler more cirical with a fiber can?
Once the packing wears out.. the heat from the engine exhaust starts to heat up the metal band clamps and then the rubber dampeners start to deteriorate.. I believe this is due to the carbon dissipating the heat faster but the steel band clamps retain it. If left unattended the band clamp rubber dampeners will deteriorate and the steel clamp will then rub on the carbon fiber without that rubber gasket as a barrier.

With the aluminum can, there does not seem to be the same problem with heat dissipation and rubber dampener deterioration when the packing starts to wear out, at least not what I've seen on friends GYT-R exhausts.

I have new packing for mine and Yamaha customer service is sending me new rubber dampeners. I have watched my replacement GYT-R carbon very closely so as to not ruin it. I also have the quiet core and spark arrrestor that have not been used yet.

Overall performance is significant from stock and the Dirt Riders exhaust review reflects the performance benefits over other exhausts also.

The JARDINE and it only weighs 5 pounds and it is 450 dolllars for full system and it has a spark arrestor and baffle, it has the farthest clearance of any pipe I saw.

then the GYTR pipes all clear.

and the TZ pipes clear.
