Default New tip for my Raptor

It was such a pain in the ass to ge the stock spark arrestor out of my bike. I tried WD40 and channel locks at first, heat and vice grips next, heat and a slide hammer and finally a bunch of holes and more hits from the slide hammer. We finally go it out. I bought an ebay tip to replace it and it sounds good. I'll eventually go for a full dual exhaust but I'm saving for a new truck so this works for now.

Stock one in pipe:

I almost bought a 450 but it felt small for my size.

I only went with Yamaha because my buddies own Yamaha and they don't have many problems if any with their bikes. I have heard good things about Suzuki and the others brands though.

When I saw Raptor in the thread title, I thought you had a F-150. I was about to be real jealous. I still am actually. Those things look like a party.

Justin's(84socal on RF) 84 Yota. I'm not sure what I'm getting yet. I'm deciding between a Taco and a Silverado. I have been saving money for 2 months now and I'm going to keep saving money until about December. The problem is that I'm fixing my truck at the same time and it keeps developing new problems.
