2004 Yamaha Grizzly HMF Swamp Series Exhaust

Recommended Posts

Starting a new thread on this topic. Installing an HMF Swamp series slip on. Needs to be jetted, so I took the bowl off and..stripped out the carb bowl screws, they're so damn soft. Had to leave it alone and order some screws, bowl gasket, and new air filter. Just waiting for the parts to come in.

May I suggest some socket cap allen head screws from your local hardware store? The first thing I do to any of my carbs is replace the float bowl screws. The allen head screws don't strip. BTW, that Grizz looks like it is in good shape, nice score.

Thanks, that's a good idea. I ordered extra screws from some Yamaha parts site, just waiting for them to come in. I don't even know if I have a local hardware store except for a Home Depot.....

Home Depot is where I got the screws for my carbs. They don't have a huge selection of metric stuff, but they did have Allen head socket cap screws that match the threads on my float bowl screws. The heads are kind of small, so it is best to use washers with them. I think they are 4mm screws with a .7 thread pitch, basically a common 4mm machine screw. If you have problems again with the new phillips screws you have coming, or you just want to upgrade anyway, I would recommend this to anyone who has to do frequent jetting changes. The allen head screws are so much easier to deal with than the phillips. I think that the persons who invented phillips and flat-head screws should be exiled to a poor war torn counrty for all the frustration they have caused me. This Allen fellow who so kindly gave us the allen head screw should have a statue built in his image.

Nice, thanks for the info! :yes:

I took your advice DD, I bought those allen head screws. I still have not got the parts by mail...

Yesterday I wrapped up the exhaust, installed a HMF Swamp series slip on. I installed a 175 main jet per recommendations from HMF. Starts right up, but I noticed some smoking going on. I changed the oil, because it was due and black. Seemed to get a little better. I'm wondering if I should go down to a 165 or 175 main jet. I also am waiting on a new air filter, stock replacement. The exhaust sounds nice....:yes: Just a little bit of a rough idle and slight smoking. No smoking with the stock exhaust. I've never gone aftermarket exhaust, so this is new to me.

I've installed a HMF Swamp Series slip on exhaust on my Grizzly. I noticed a bit of smoking coming from the exhaust. Jetted it to HMF suggested 175 main jet. Seems to run pretty smooth. Definately feel more power. attached some pictures. I'm going to write up a full review for QUADCRAZY.

i have a buddy that has a brute force and he put on the same exhaust and his quad smoked a little at first,so i believe this is common with a new exhaust,and he loves the swamp series exhaust,he noticed a power difference and more mid and low end power,i think u will prolly like it,but he thinks he may have lost a little power on the top end,but then again that it where you use the most of your power.

      got 7 atvs off CL recently for a good price.  one of which is a yamaha warrior.  anyone know where the vin is printed on this bike?  Haha good place to start as I do not know year or size yet.  The former owner says needs exhaust ans and clutch work.  he said it ran fine until the clutch cable broke and then I couldn't get the new cable adjusted right and it would grind gears.  things I see:  clutch cable locked up again, no brakes, carb leaking (green with algae around the bowl and has gelled gas stalagtights on it), aftermarket exhaust melted the airbox so I need something different and a new air box.  I would like the use the current exhaust if I can but I have a feeling its a redneck fix as it looks like there is an ace bandage holding it to the exhaust pipe (its an aftermarket slip-on exhaust), so I'm not sure about that- lets get the bike running first.  also, battery (looks brand new, what a shame) is dead, 0 volts.  Otherwise, bike looks to have not been wrecked, and plastics are ok (it sat outside under a 'tarp' for 3+ years since it was run last).  any tips and advise on where to start first would be awesome as this is my first clutched bike (manual).
      the clutch is my main concern- I've never rode a clutched bike so I dont even know what its supposed to feel like.  lol I'm spoiled on my automatic polaris

      Does anyone have a redcat 250 or falcon 250cc that they can share where the two vacuum lines on the carburetor that you run antifreeze through I honestly have no idea where the lines are suppose to go to circulate the antifreeze. 
       
      Any help is greatly appreciated.

      Tonight is the first presidential debate and it should be a record breaker for viewing. Might as well have a mini poll here on QUADCRAZY to see how they stack up. Make your choice in the poll and feel free to comment in this topic. I'm going to pin this topic and keep it going through the elections in November.

      Hello. I am a new member as of today. I had a quick question to ask. I recently was driving mt HONDA RANCHER 2004 GPSscape 400 and my display stopped working. I was driving the atv and all of a sudden the speedometer and the service lights went out. Also the lights stopped working. I am still able to shift gears, change from 2wd to 4wd, and can still select if I want EPS or Auto. I have checked my fuse box and have changed a few of them around. It did not change anything. I was wondering if anyone had any idea of what had happend. Thank you for your time- Trenton

      So i was riding the other day and my quad randomly shut off. It started back up and ran completely fine for a little while and then it started idling terribly.
      I cleaned the carb and changed all the jets and everything except the float due to the rebuild kit not coming with one and it actually runs worse then it did before.
      It will run and idle decent now but when I give it gas it dies.
      Does anybody know what could be wrong?
      I also changed the spark plug and air filter along with the oil and oil filter.

      The Hop-Up: You may be saying to yourself, “that’s a chick bike,” and you’re right. But honestly, it’s so much more than that. It’s one badass bike. http://www.quadmagazine.com/quad/features/article/0,24942,1587044,00.html

      I just got a 1991 Yamaha Moto 4 for my son and I am looking for a service repair manual. I know that the timing chain needs replaced.
