you, Yoshi!!

I went to pull my bike out this morning to load it up for a ride and when I moved it I hear something that sounds like a loose bolt rolling around in a pan.
WTF is that?, I say!
Soo I'm looking all over my engine while shaking my bike and can't find where the sound is coming from. Sounded like it was coming from the valve train, soo I pull the tank and valve cover to check it out. Luckily, everything was where it was supposed to be, but I still could'nt figure out where the sound was coming from.
Finally, I isolated the sound coming from my midpipe of my exhaust.

Then it hit me, I bet the spark arrestor came apart and fell into the exhaust system.
Sure enough, shine the shop light up the tail pipe and it's now a straight thru design.
standard

Pull the muffler and mid pipe off and this rolls out..
standard

Seems like this thing should have been welded on instead of just pressed on.
Has only been on my bike for a few months and it falls apart.
I plan on giving Yoshimura a call on tuesday.

I had a ton of issues with yoshi carbon pipes on my CR250F's. The mounts would sheer off the carbon can. They told me, it was motocross and parts get damaged. I will NEVER use yoshi again.

G/L with your call. let us know how it turns out.

Yeah, i heard about the problems with thw carbon cans, thats one of the reasons i went with stainless. A little cheaper too. I will say this, the bike feels a bit stronger now that i got it out.

Yea, it will run a bit better like it is. Still no excuse for poor quality.
