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.

      Hi thanks for adding me on here, i bought a none running 110cc thundercat quad and i have spark, fuel, compression but it wont start anyone have any ideas as im stumped 
    • By JacobSlabach
      picked up this pos bike for $80 not running.  took it home, cleaned the carb and bypassed the fuse-  ran great (other than the rev limiter- those things are so stupid)  Then one day out of the blue it starts flooding on cold startup and wont idle cold, but idles to fast warm.  (too fast being about half throttle speed heh).  I tried a new carb ($10) and new sp.  new carb wouldnt make it run except on choke and then it was gushing white smoke.  I had better things to do with my time so I parked it in a shed and used it for a work bench for a while...  this last weekend, I wanted to take it along with the sportman to a mens retreat to let the younger boys have some fun on it--  took about 30mins to pull all the crap I had accumulated on it and then rolled it down to my workshop, put the old carb back on after adjusting the needle clip up two notches (leaner) and threw it back on the bike.  Will turn over, but no fire.  I didnt have time to check sp that day but just wanted some incite on what could be wrong with this quad (if it even qualifies as being called that)

      Hello all.  I have just stripped down the carb on my YFM225 as it is not running right.
      I put it in the ultrasonic cleaner for half an hour and it has done a good job.
      Nice clean jets but when I go full throttle it backfires, and there is a lack of power.
      It also does not seem to take fuel in properly - it comes out the petcock ok so it is running freely enough, but it is not drawing into the carb.
      If anyone has any ideas I would be very grateful.

      Hi all, new to the forum, looking forward to getting some help/advice on maintaining an 18 yr old atv!  So my King Quad 300, recently started running really rough (otherwise ok til this point) at anything more than idle.  After started, choke on/off, doesn't seem to matter, it shutters (Not sure how else to explain it) really bad when given throttle.  I can let the engine run for several minutes, but this never improves.  
      Fuel pump checks out ok, and I don't see any gas in the fuel pump vacuum line.  I am a novice on a carburetor, but I need to see what's going on, so after taking it apart, I have a question about this plastic part with an o-ring that is above the jet needle.  Appears as if someone rebuilt this carb, because it is extremely clean...so I am wondering if this plastic part looks to be typical for this carb...or not.  Thanks in advance for the help!

      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.

      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.
    • By alexcross324
      Hi all, I try to find this manual in the threads but you have a lot of stock here
      Cannot find this particular manual.
      I found it for YFM200 but not sure if they are the same.
      Thanks if you could help me with that.
      Im new here so if I did something wrong, please tell me.
