Use the "shade tree stethoscope" - a length of 1/4" vinyl tubing with one end in your ear. Use the other end to search the exhaust header and collector areas for the source of the sound.

Well,...either someone has toyed with the baffles inside the mufflers,or they have rusted,and are starting to come apart. My reccomendation would be to buy a set of aftermarket slip-ons,or a full exhaust system.Good Luck!

When my cycle is idling, the muffler on the left is giving off warm exhaust and condensation while the muffler on the right is cold. ps I can keep my hands on the end of the muffler (right) for a long time...

The right cylinder is not getting spark. Install a new spark plug. Check for spark before installing it. Check by grounding the threads of the plug against the cylinder then cranking the engine.

1995 yamaha blows more exhaust on the left side than the right

Assuming the bike idles smoothly and is not smoking you can pretty well rule out bad valves and piston rings. If the air filter is clean then intake should be okay. Are the valves set properly? Is the decompression lever and valve working properly? I assume there is not mud plugging up the pipe. That pretty much leaves the muffler on the right side having an internal collapse and is restricting the flow of exhaust gases. Remove the mufflers and see if the pressures are equal at the head. If the problem is still there then have the shop do a compression check. It is possible a ring has broken or is frozen in the ring groove. This would let some compression into the gear box and account for the lower exhaust pressure. I hope this helps.

Yamaha dt 125r power valve

Your barrel? LOL. Sounds like the valves need to be gone through. I would suggest taking and valve train apart and put it back together correctly then go from there.

Sounds like that the cylinder is not firing and the fuel is running straight through the exhaust.
