We brought in a customer's Yamaha Raptor 125 for full research and development on an exhaust system. After development and endless dyno testing, HMF came up with a Slip On and Full System for the Yamaha Raptor 125.
We tried 4 different head pipe designs along with 3 different silencer designs before coming up with a combo that made good power across the board.
By simply bolting our full system up to the little Raptor we saw a 15% gain in power. After seeing how choked up the intake side is, we removed the air box lid, backfire screen, and added a K&N filter with Outerwear. We found the stock carburetor was not up to the task of supporting the increased flow of the new exhaust and air box/filter modifications. The Keihin PE28 Carb was dropped in place of the original. After some fine tuning, we saw a 30% power gain over stock.
We put together an engine package that would increase compression from 10:1 to 11:1 with a Wiseco stock bore piston, Stage 1 Hotcam, and ported cylinder head. Even with this relatively mild combo, we peaked out at 10.92 horse power. Thatís a 41% power gain over stock! The Engine Kit is available through HMF. See the Accessories below.†
There's a lot of things you can do in addition to the exhaust to increase the overall performance of the Yamaha Raptor 125. We have a number of tuning products available through HMF for this. We also have an Engine kit to take it's power to the ultimate level.
