    So I'm looking at getting the exhaust system (via craigslist) from a 2006 TW for my 1989 TW. I assume this will be an easy bolt-up swap. Buuuuuut, I called the local Yamaha dealer and they show different part numbers.

    Can anyone help me out on this? I would like to confirm the interchangeability before purchasing.

    Thanks!

    All the same.



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    SO, I finally got around to putting the nice newer 2006 OEM exhaust system on my old 1989... It fit alright, but Yamaha must have changed the frame mount a little so I'll have to do a little fab work. It sure is a bunch quieter now!

    Here are a few pics showing the mounting change. And check out that rotten exhaust! It just broke apart as I disassembled it to have a look...

    I stand corrected. I have an '03 exhaust on my '87 frame. Wonder what year things changed.

    I don't mean to correct you or anything... just keeping the info up to date. I'm checking part #'s now trying to find when the change happened... This website looks handy. Gonna check it out more tomorrow.

    I don't like to dispense bad information if I can help it. I told you they were all the same, and you ran out and bought one on my say so. Ergo, I stand corrected and apologise for steering you wrong.



    Let us know if you discover year-to-year differences in addition to the mounting tabs. Other than the very early '87's which had welded end caps I've not found any until you pointed out the mounting issue. There could be others.

    Nah. If you look at an older frame you can see that the forward mount tab hole is closer to the frame downtube. What year is the bike in that pic? I've given up on trying to remember 25 years of color schemes. lol.
