400 EX FMF exhaust set up

3 posts in this topic

All right I have a 02 400ex, the engine is stock other than a rev box. I have a new fmf powerbomb pipe and a used megamaxII muffler to put on it. I don't like how loud the muffler is but there is a weight and power difference. Currently i have the pipe on it with the stock muffler, (nice and quiet!) But i don't want to mess the engine up, do i need to re jet? If so where to start from. I was told a 160 worked good in a different ex with the exhaust I havebut I would like to know what you think. And yes it is a pain to pull the spark plug on a 400ex, especially when they are hot.

Most of the time when you Put any Aftermarket pipe and Silencer on you will have to Re-Jet...Normaly they come with a new needle and Jet kit...Yours didnt??? Anyway,,,,The only real way to know what is going on in your motor is to do a Plug Chop...Read the plug and Adjust from there.....Hope that helped....

      Hi. I own a 2001 Yamaha Kodiak 400 4x4. I am looking to buy new rims for it. I just don't know what rims exactly that I need to get as the back and front rims have a different offset. I'm looking at the itp Delta rims. I have tires from my grizzly that I would like to use on my Kodiak. They are size 25. If anyone could help with the specific rims that I need to order, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

      I bought a Honda 250sx 1986 but the exhaust is broken. Apparently it's not possible to order a new one. I checked to order one on others compagny but there's noting.
      Do you know which exhaust it's possible to install. Is there a company who sold an exaust to fit on my 250sx.
      Sorry for my english
      Thank you

      Hi Everyone
      This is my first post and I was wondering if there is anyone who can help me solve a problem I have with my Yamaha Kodiak 400 4x4 Fitted with a Mikuni Carburetor . The year of the quad is around 1998, the reason I am not sure of the date is, there wasn't any paperwork and no details on the frame either.
      The quad had a bad leak from the carb overflow which indicated that the float needle valve was blocked or passing so I replaced this and put everything back together. The quad ran really well until I took it onto some rough ground to have a ride around, a few hours later the engine started to run really rough as if the engine was flooding. I have removed the carb again and cleaned the needle valve out and the whole of the carb just in case there where any dirt behind it. Engine now runs fine again but fuel has started to run out the carb overflow again.
      I have tried everything to try and stop the fuel leaking out the overflow but its still happening. My last thoughts where to adjust the float level and its still happening.
      Has anyone got any thoughts on the problem or could suggest whats causing the fuel leaking out the overflow.
      Thanks for reading
