How to get the best from your Yamaha’s exhaust

Bike exhaust modifications can change the way your bike sounds and feels.

And they’re cheap. 

Aero exhaust modification kits, for example, cost around $50 to $100, while a $400 exhaust kit, which includes a turbocharger and muffler, costs $300.

These are the best ways to change a Yamaha exhaust without breaking the bank. 

So, to find the best DIY exhaust mod, we reached out to our friends at The Bike Guys.

They took the top tips from the best exhaust mods, and created a set of DIY exhaust modifications for a number of bikes. 

The bikes included in this guide are Yamaha FZ-09, FZ5, F1, F500, F3, F2, F1000 and FZR-01. 

Yamaha FZ and F ZR are the flagship models of the brand, and are the most common in the world. 

They’re also the most expensive in the US. 

You’ll need a muffler and a turbo charger to get started. 

Here’s what you need to know about installing your own exhaust system. 


Choose Your Muffler When it comes to getting the best out of your exhaust system, you’ll need to look to your muffler for its best quality. 

If you’re looking to save money, you can get a mufflers for around $150, but you may be surprised at how much more expensive it is. 

With a muffer, you’re able to remove the muffler without breaking anything, but the factory mufflers don’t offer the level of detail and versatility you get with an aftermarket muffler. 

In this video, the Yamaha F1 muffler is tested by Tom of the Rocket. 

Tom explains why this particular muffler works, and what you can expect when it comes time to buy. 

We used a Yamaha F500 and a Yamaha FXR-50 to test out different mufflers. 

It’s important to choose the right muffler because it’ll affect how your exhaust looks. 

While Yamaha’s mufflers are designed to work with the factory exhaust system that comes with your bike, you may want to choose a muffinator that’s more appropriate for your bike.

Choose The Right Turbos The Yamaha F750 and F750F are the brand’s most popular bikes, and you can save money on these by going for a custom turbochargers.

The factory turbos come in a range of price points, but they can cost as much as $500 to $800, depending on your brand of choice. 

Turbos come in two main types: superchargers, which are designed for larger engines, and smaller turbocharges, which will run for smaller engines. 

Superchargers cost around half as much to get going as turbochargings, but have much better performance, allowing you to crank the engine to higher rpm.

Choose A Custom Boosters Bearing in mind that this article is about modifying your mufflers, you might want to check out a boost converter to make your engine more efficient. 

Boost converters come in different designs, but all are designed with one purpose in mind: increasing the boost you can give your engine without having to spend a lot of money. 

For example, a supercharger may have a boost of 15psi, but if you’ve got a turbo converter that’s only 1psi higher, you won’t see any gains from a boost converter. 

This is because the boost converter converts the power from the turbochargest to the exhaust gases, and it converts the boost back to the engine’s fuel. 

Most boost converters are available for around a few hundred dollars, and the best ones are designed specifically for use on larger engines.4.

Choose a Turbostratting System If you want to use a turbo, it’s important you choose a turbo that’s compatible with your engine. 

Unfortunately, most turbos aren’t designed to be compatible with the Yamaha RX-5, so if you want a turbo you can install one on a bike with a Yamaha RX. 

Depending on the turbo, you should get a turbo controller and a boost controller.

Choose Different Batteries For every engine you’ll want a different battery.

The best way to find a battery is to look at different brands of battery, and compare them.

Select Your Batterys If it’s a standard Yamaha, you need a dual-type battery, which means you need two batteries to run the engine.
