Yamaha YFM225 Loud Exhaust

Recommended Posts

I have a Yamaha YFM225 which sounds really noisy exhaust wise.  It had no baffle so I bought and installed that but it seemed to make no difference.  There are no leaks from the manifold or exhaust but the damm thing just sounds  so loud !

If there are no leaks, its got to be the muffler. Is that an aftermarket muffler?

No, this is the stock exhaust.  It did not have the baffle in so that cost about £80! Did not seem to have any affect though.  Still sounds like a bloody tank!  I will have to take it off I think and re-fit when the weather gets warm enough to be outside!  Thanks for your reply.

Hello Frank,  I have actually just bought a couple of them and will be changing it out to eliminate it.  Thanks for your suggestion.

Well nobody has said I can not link to a video I made on the noisy exhaust, so here it is if anyone has anything to add to what has already been said....

So, I replaced the exhaust gasket and it is MUCH better!

I replaced it with a copper one - I think the old is a different compound.

Here is the old one....

(By the way, when I find the problem on anything, I do try to post on forums as I am so fed up with seeing forum posts with a problem but no solution from the original poster!)  - I think it is rude to not show what the solution was as it helps no-one if there is no feedback on an issue!

      Hello, I just bought a 2006 ttr125 and the guy said it needed a new carb because gas was leaking out the overflow and he couldn’t find out what was wrong with it, I opened it up and messed with the float and I couldn’t figure it out myself so I just ordered a $30 carb off of amazon. I installed it and it seemed to run great around the yard but when I got on the road and started picking up speed it seems to just turn off once I slow down and down shift. I don’t know it’s like if I go to fast it will just completely die and right after it dies it won’t start, the es won’t work nor will the kick start, I have to wait a good 30 minutes before I can start it and it runs fine again. Anything helps! Thanks

      Unfortunately I didn't notice some of the rust hitting the undercarriage of my 2004 Yamaha Grizzly 660, but saw it the other day when I was doing some maintenance, oil change, air filter, spark plug, etc. The left side footrest broke and that's causing the plastic to hit the front wheel. It broke right at the welds from too much rust. Looks to me like what I need is (looked this up on yamahapartshouse.com):
      YAMAHA FOOTREST BOARD 5KM-27481-10 Left side (broken)
      YAMAHA FOOTREST BOARD 5KM-27488-10-00 Right side (rusted and will probably break eventually)

       
      Does anyone have a less expensive source? I did see on ebay a couple of listings but it still comes out to @ $50 each,
