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.

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 guys new to this forum and thought I’d jump on as I’ve just bought my first quad a Kawasaki bayou klf300c 89 model. It had starting issues when I bought it so I’ve gone thru and replaced the cdi, voltage regulator and starter solenoid aswell as rebuilt the starter motor after all this it was still free spinning on electric start so I pulled the stator cover off to find the fly wheel wasn’t spinning so replaced the one way clutch bearing put it all back together and still not engaging at all. I’m at a loss and looking for some ideas on we’re to look next to solve the problem
      cheers Ben 👍

      Trying to replace the carburetor on my 2003 Bear Tracker 250. Two brand new carbs in a row from different suppliers.   Both leak fuel out over flow and intake as soon as I turn the gas on. Any ideas. Am I doing something wrong?

      So who's pulling for who in this years Super Bowl?? Im a big fan of Andy Reed and Kansas City (But loyal to my NY Giants) hope he finally gets his ring. He's a great coach but has had a hard time closing the deal! Maybe he gets it done!
      Good luck to all the pool people!!! I have 11 boxes and never hit on a Super Bowl box so im not expecting anything good to come again but always hopeful. 
       
      Thoughts ????

      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.

      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.
