Yamaha Raptor 700 Exhaust install issue

Recommended Posts

Hey Fellers & Ladies,

To day i installed my kik azz Barkers duals for my rappy 700. Everything went fine, except for one thing. On the left side, right where the header and muffller pipe connect, the pipe touches a group of wires

I tried a piece of asbestos like/rubber gasket material for a heat shield. But it still didnt do the trick.

Has anyone had this problem??

Any suggestions to fix this problem??

* in the pics, i still have the gasket installed

u could try to loosen up the exhaust and pry the exhaust up with a bar,that may give u a little room,and then wrap the wires with an exhaust wrap,and tighten the exhaust while u have the pry bar in there...just a thought....

Doesn't seem right that the pipe runs so close to those wires. I'm thinking there may be a bad bend in the pipe somewhere causing the tight fit, or something was put on incorrectly. I would call the manufacturer or retailer that sold you the pipe and see what they have to say, they may need to send out a new part for you.

Anytime yyou are hooking up an exhaust system, you want to weight to tighten everything after you get the pipe lined up. It will never fit right if you tighten up the brackets as you are making your way back.

I loosened the header, and repositioned the pipe using a small pry bar, while i snugged it back up. Pretty simple actually

      Went to change oil and get my sons  2000 Suzuki King Quad 300 ready for spring and found the left front wheel wont move at all but the right does. Doesn't matter if it's 2 or 4 wheel drive same issue. Nothing looks bent, tie rod ends and ball joints in place jacked it up and shook wheel and bearing seems tight. Any ideas before I tear the dang thing apart?  Of course my son has no idea what happened.

      I have a 425 Magnum that idles great but seems to flood out when I rev it up, sputters, backfires a little somtimes. No water in gas, good fuel filter, carb seems to be fine, good working diaphram. Plug change makes no difference whatsoever.

      Hey guys, need some help with my 2016 Yamaha Kodiak 700 4x4.  Was riding and it started smoking below the air box and then Caught fire.  We got the fire put out quickly with a fire extinguisher.  Many of the wires below the air box got damaged.   I purchased a new wiring harness for the atv and replaced that as well as any other damaged cables or parts that burned up where the fire was.  I also replaced the regulator, the ECU, and the starter solenoid. I also replaced the stater since some of the cables that went to the regulator were damaged.  It acts like it will crank but it won’t turn over.   The fuel pump initialized when I turn the key so it’s working.  I’ve spend $1500 on parts and no luck yet.  Any suggestions?

      I have a 1998 Big bear 350...the tail pipe/spark arrestor is broke in the exhaust....how can I get it out to replace it? And what's the best way to get the new one in?

      Hey all, I work for a fleet shop and we have a lifeguard ATV its a Kawasaki brute force 650. Its back firing through one carb more than the other one and back firing through the exhaust. Starts up and idles good, once you start giving it throttle it acts as if its starving for fuel. This thing gets tons of beach sand thrown at it 24/7. Things that have been replaced are:
      both new carbs, new fuel pump, new plugs.
      Things that have been checked: Compression is good - in range (high end of the range) also have ohm'd the coils and the resistance is within spec in the service manual. Fuel pick up is clean, no debris or restriction there. Does any body have any other ideas what it could be? Thanks for any input

      Let’s talk noise! I’ve just got my 350 Big Bear running smoothly with lots of power. But…a wee bit NOISEY! Bought a new baffle and am ready to install it, question is, do I need to re-pack the muffler before installation? Or can I re-pack?
