I'll block off the AIS using one of the several "redneck" methods mentioned on this thread, seems like any one of them will do exactly the same thing as the little plate to block the AIS. As for the exhause tip, since yours looks to remove the entire spark arrester unit (and thus increasing the overall exhaust volume level), I think I'll attempt a fab of my own that keeps the arrester in place but gives a throatier exhaust note (if such a thing can be accomplished, a topic for another thread.)

    Sure, but that arrester unit in the muffler has got to be doing something to keep the db's down. Just a screen would let an aweful lot of sound get by unabated. I want a deeper, throatier sound, not necessarily a louder one. These damn machines make enough racket already-- nearly impossible to have a conversation in the cab without yelling at each other. With helmets on foggeddaboutit.

    Then don't buy a tip, it is loud. You can't really have it both. ways, the HMF exhaust is not so loud and it really helps on the back pressure and runs cooler.

    Yeah, did not make sense to me reading his quest. Troatier will mean louder. LOL

    I have a 750 KIngquad and had a 700 as well. Both are very quiet with their stock stainless steel mufflers. If they could be adapted it should make a difference. I don't know why Yamaha employed such a low end solution, both in appearance and sound for us to drive around with. I find its quieter if I am not too hard on the trottle and crusing at nominal load. But not quiet enough. I was working on checking my air filter and started the machine with the storage bin out and moved it. Its not noisier with it out so sound proofing it wouldn't do anything. Its coming from the rear and/or exhaust I expect. CVT seems to make various odd sounds which I am told is normal all adding the the clanking orchestra on the trail.

    According to the dudes on that "exhaust tip with spark arrestor" thread, it sounds like I could have it both ways. Sorta. Those fellers have done the mod leaving the stock arrestor in place and hacking out the center and adding a larger pipe. Apparently this accomplishes kinda what I was looking to do, which is get rid of the pfffft pfffft pfffft sissy exhaust sound create a beefier tone without adding an obnoxious amount of extra volume.

    Todd- would LOVE a full HMF exhaust system but its just not in the cards right now. (and by cards I mean bank account.) ;-)

    Today I removed the bed using info from Todd's "how to" tech video, came off just like he says. The only thing I initially missed was that little plastic screw pin right behind the center console lid. Once that was out and the tail light wires unplugged, the bed slid right off. Hope it goes back on just as easy, but I doubt it. LOL

    I blocked the AIS with the yellow wire nut trick but I did wrap some electrical tape around the nut to make it just slightly fatter. I didn't like the loose fit of the wire nut in the hose, I wanted it to be good and snug in there. Adding the extra diameter with the electrical tape was perfect-- a little WD40 and pushed it in with a screwdriver. That sucker ain't goin nowhere.

    I thought that’s what you were looking for. I ran mine without the stock arrester and it was intolerable but after moding the spark arrester and putting 1/2 back in its about right. You could use the original flange for the tip and weld on a bigger elbow as others did in similar threads.

    And for the arrester, I grinder the welds on the back plate, taking it off, which has helped quit a bit. I’m also going to finish grinding the welds to the screen and shorten the inside length of it.

    Must be a southern mod. "Yellow Wire Nut Trick" I have no clue what you've done short of plugging hose at some point along its route. Isn't it still very hot inside the hose.

    The part is 25.00 with free shipping from Hunterworks. I don't know why someone wouldn't just order it.
