Trying to change out the handlebars and am having some problems with the throttle tube. The two damn Phillips heads that hold it onto the bar will not budge. I've put pb blaster on them to no avail, am I missing something?

I called Yoshimura just now.

There will be a complete exhaust system (muffler & header) and a slip-on only (muffler).

They are using the RS4 duplex chamber setup with packing material.

Mid 90s db range, not EPA compliant.

Available in 6 weeks or so - just after the New Year.

They will take your name for pre-orders - 800-634-9166.

Agreed. I just got mine. Yikes! Looks like a high school kids welding project.

Another question. Any need for the fi controller if you just want a slip on?

My welds are decent on mine, definitely not terrible. I'm thinking they have 2 welders there.

You don't have to. But the controller is well worth it for the performance you will gain combined with the slip-on.

I dropped off my new 2013 CRF250L at Flatland Racing today. They will be developing accessories using my bike as the pattern. In the next two weeks they'll have skid plates & radiator guards. Next will be a rear rack. Around Christmas they'll borrow my bike again, then most likely disc brake guards will follow.

They seem like great guys, all are experienced riders. They gave me the grand tour of their manufacturing & retail facilities. The owner told me they have been in business for 20 years. All of their accessories look like quality stuff, I look forward to getting my bike back with the new farkles.

Thanks!

I like them, definitely free'd up some weight, difference isn't hugely noticeable but can surely be felt (as far as power). It was popping a bit after install of just the exhaust components. Once I added the fuel controller is when it opened up. I also did the airbox mods and filter mod that can be seen on bestdualsports.com . The 13 tooth front socket was also a big boost to the gearing, tons of fun in the dirt at this point. I need some better tires than stock though as they kind of suck in the sand.
