Installing an exhaust

Hey all! I have an '03 KTM 125SX. Im installing a FMF Fatty Pipe with a Powercore 2 Silencer. Now when i install it do i have to seal the part where the pipe and the silencer meet? My stock pipe that's on it now have a little rubber boot that seals it. It's broken of course and leaks carbon all over my kick starter and swing arm

But I was curious if I need some sort of rubber seal or a sealing compound for it. Thanks a lot!No you dont absolutly need it but it would be smart to have because I had the same thing happen on my yz125 and the carbon went everywhere and staind my swingarm. I just used a piece of old radiator tube because it was cheap and I didn't have to order it.,

I just put a new fmf fatty pipe and a power core 2 silencer on my bike (1994 yz 250) and now when I start my bike it will run for like 10 sec and then It will bog down and die on me. Then it wont start,...

if the bike was running fine before you replaced pipe,you may need larger jets,or richen fuel mix,also check the reed valve it may be on the weak side.try a new spark plug also if you have not already replaced it.

hi this might help,by fitting an after market exhaust system you will probably have leaned out the fuel air ratio in the carb(less back pressure in the exhaust system)you will need to have the carb rejetted to suit the exhaust modification,if you keep running the bike as it is you will inevitably seize the motor as it is running way to lean .cheers

For more power you can port the engine but I would start with performance Reeds. Also would adjust suspention and revalve if needed. That would be it for me…,,

Dirtbike eahaust pipe comprison -which is best

I know there were a few different models: X440S only FMF Powercore aluminum silencer/stainless header combo E440/C440 standard header/silencer with midpipe attached (long can) (2 spark arrestors) S440 standard header/shorty silencer with seperate midpipe (1 spark arrestor) X440 standard header/silencer (NO spark arrestors) Just wondering whether anyone has ever done any hp tests between these. From my experience the X440 can would flow the best because of the lack of spark arrestors but I'm wondering how the FMF powercore compares? The FMF has shorter header runners leading to the merged portion so the shorter header should deliver more low end torque. Also do I have the S440 can info right, only 1 spark arrestor in the shorty?,The so-called S440 pipe did not have a separate midpipe. It had a fixed welded inlet, same as the longer can, and was full open. Also, I have a New 03 X440 here with the SAME exhaust, ...but another with a long and full-open version. So, you really cannot tie all exhaust versions to a particular model, since too many owners will get confused. Everybody would need to check their own machine to be sure. But if ANYBODY out there has a separate midpipe?, I'd really like to confirm wazzup -- Up until now, I have thought that the only ones around are from the small batch that I had found over in Holland. And, on just a few bikes that were assembled in Europe just prior to the bankruptcy. ,,,
