Well I had ordered the R2 tip for my exhaust and I was not impressed. After installing I took it for a ride and I noticed that it seemed to have a bit more power, but on the down side it has alot of popping and back firing on decel. I then spoke with a guy that was on a Grizzly and he and I got to talking and he showed me how he had modified his exhaust. It was an earlier Grizzly (unsure of the year) as it only had 3 bolts on the exhaust tip that he had made. He stated that he did not have any issues with it and doesn't run a fuel tuner. So I took the idea and ran with it. I removed my exhaust tip and measured the outside diameter which was about 4 inches. So with that I cut out a 4 inch circle out of a 1/8 inch piece of metal with a hole saw, then I started out by drilling the center out to 7/8inch which is the stock exhaust and then drilled the 4 mounting bolt holes 1/4 inch, then welded on a 4 inch long 7/8inch pipe with a slight down ward slope. Ran better then the stock exhaust, and no popping or back firing. So with that I set out to find out how big of a pipe I could run without getting any I'll effects (i.e popping or back firing). I went through 1 inch, 1 1/8 inch, 1 1/4 inch, 1 1/2 inch all with no ill effects, but did notice better acceleration with each size up. Then I went to 1 3/4 inch and started to notice a bit of popping on deceleration. So with that I stayed with 1 1/2 inch exhaust pipe approximately 4 inches long with downward slope, but not just a 90 degree like stock. I also cut a piece of screening material as a spark arrestor and tested the exhaust with it in and out (screen material) and I didn't notice a difference. I know that some places require the screen (spark arrestor) or you won't be able to ride without it. Below are some pics of the exhaust as I designed it. Oh and it sounds great, not to quiet and not to loud, but just the right amount of power and sound. I will have it either powder coated or ceramic coated depending on how it starts to look. Total cost for mod, $15.00 (flat metal 4x8 inch and one 90 degree electric conduit pipe, both from Lowes)

No the second pic is the stock exhaust (spark arrestor tip). I forgot to add the finished tip pic. As you can see the the exhaust tip is clearly bigger from the first photos to the finished one.

Definitely gained some hp, you can just fell the pull. I don't have any decel popping or back firing, I bet once I add a fuel controller this will be a wicked ride especially with all the clutch mods I'm about to put on.

Great info! Thanks for this bad arse post

Popping and backfire on deceleration do seem a bit much.
