Hi!
I just answered your thread lol..

I still have the stock one but the WR450 one and the other Jardine one have arrived...
I'll probably go with the WR450 silencer as it looks much better than the Jardine one but I'll be trying them both!

As for the front disc protector you'll only be able to get them from Yamaha...
the OEM part number for the protector ir: 3TB-25715-00-00 or 3TB-25715-00 (don't worry about the last 2zeros as they are mainly used only in the US)

Yes try both the silencers out, I have the stock and 2 other silencers and the difference in performance is fantastic.

Thanks for the part number, from Yamaha it will be expensive I expect, like the air scoops I need also, extortinate!

I see they are for the 3TB, don't know if they will fit the 4PT with the disc being 285mm, I think the older models had a small disc.

Actually looks like that part is no longer available, discontinued.

oh.. I thought you had the 3TB... the one on the picture you posted....

I dunno the 4PT part number tho, maybe someone knows?

the disc cover isn't really a necessary part... but it's up to you
and yes... the airscoops are too pricey... I think I'll order some in fiberglass.. they cost 60euros with no paint....from a guy here in Portugal...

Yes I have a 2003 4pt, I saw that bike on ebay and emailed him asking where he got the disc cover but it was already on his bike when he bought it.

60 euros is a good price, Yamaha want about double that.

If he sends to the UK I would appreciate his webpage.

Anyway I don't want to ruin and hijack your mod thread anymore so feel free to reply in the other thread or send his webpage by PM.

Hey all!

well, I'm thinking that since I'm fitting the raptor carb on my XT I should also use one of these:

I just don't know if I should use the following set:

From cylinder head to carb and from carb to air filter:

1) XT inlet rubbers - carb - Raptor 660 air ducts
OR
2) Raptor inlet rubbers - carb - Raptor 660 air ducts


I think the first option would be the best...
Anyone else got experience with this please help out..

Also... anyone car to share his knowledge or expertise and help out with choosing the jetting setup I should use?

Well, I'm going for option number 1....
I just don't know if I'll use the Raptor's air ducts or if I'll need to fabricate some in alluminum exhaust-type of pipe because of clearance against the rear shock....

Does anyone know if the raptor air ducts will work on my setup?
