Default Yamamods Power Tip Review

This is my review of the Yamamods 2" power tip for the 2007-2009 Grizzly 700.

Discription from their website. yamamods.com
Quote:
THIS IS A POWER TIP FOR THE YAMAHA GRIZZLY 700 WITH FUEL INJECTION. FITS YEARS 2007, 2008 AND 2009. IT IS A 2" STAINLESS STEEL EXHAUST MOD / ENDCAP. IT REPLACES THE ORIGINAL RESTRICTIVE 1" TIP AND SPARK ARRESTOR TO A FULL 2" TAILPIPE. IT HAS A 45 DEGREE DOWN TURNED ANGLE TO DIRECT EXHAUST AWAY FROM THE PLASTIC. THE SPARK ARRESTOR WILL BE ELIMINATED WITH THIS MOD.

A STAINLESS STEEL FLANGE NEAR 1/8 THICK, IS PRECISION LASER CUT AND PROFESSIONALLY TIG WELDED FOR A PERFECT SEAL. THIS MOD WILL HELP LOW END POWER. WHEN INSTALLED IT PRODUCES A NICE THROATY SOUND LIKE A 700 SHOULD. IT IS NOT MUCH LOUDER THAN STOCK IT JUST PRODUCES A DEEPER TONE.


Nicely TIG welded.




Stock reference.

Tip installed.

Impressions:
I bought it with the intention of painting with High temp black paint and keeping it looking stock.The Yamamods tip sounds very nice. The Grizzly has a louder growl to it on idle and roars more at WOT. Cruising speed it has a nice mellow even sound to it.
I wish it came with removable spark arrestor so that I'm legal in state parks... or anywhere for that matter.

As for power increase... I did not notice any by the seat of my pants.

This is for those of you that don't like the stock sound and want to hear a more aggressive but not obnoxious sound from your Grizzly.

If you need a tip with a spark arrestor, look at the tip made by 2R Racing.

Just remember the spark arrestor screen is required to ride on any National Forest land. Not to mention it just a good fire safety practice no matter where you ride.

It is a good idea to run one if you ride ditches or in dry areas.

Here is what the stock spark arrestor looks like on a 09 700 grizzly.

Thanks for the review, looks like a nice product. The sound is much better as well with the 2r tip, im sure its similar, the stock muffler tip is a pea shooter and sounds like it too lol. Could even make your own arrestor screen, just get some metal screen/mesh and cut it out and sandwich it between the tip and the muffler.

I'm actually looking into doing that. Correct me if i'm wrong, but from what I understand its still illegal to be in a state or federal park without having an approved or certified spark arrestor.

Im pretty sure thats true. From my understanding they stick something up the exhaust pipe, and if it goes clear up they ticket you, so having the mesh/screen there will definitely prevent you from being ticketed.

for the review. I'm surprised that they don't offer any arrestor. Even the 2R tip for a 450 doesn't come with one but they at least tell you how to reuse your stock one.

If you have a 350, 450, 660 they show you how to reuse the stock one.
