Talking Reed/silencer combo - '05 YZ 125

I'm looking into purchasing a few goodies to help perk up my '05 YZ 125. I want more torque and a harder hitting powerband. Something that will be good to trail ride with but lift the front wheel with a crack of the throttle.
I was thinking about the V-Force Delta 3 reeds and a new silencer. What silencer would give me the best gains with the powerband I want? I was looking into the FMF line; The Ti 2, the Shorty and the Powercore 2.
Thanks so much for the help guys, much appreciated!

The Vforce 3 will help the power down low a lot. The Shorty will also move power down lower and have a smoother power uptop. With both of those your most likely going to have a good bottom, strong mid, and a nicely controlable top. Thats probably going to give you the power your looking for.

Okay, cool. I don't want to lose too much top though. Will that setup give me that explosive midrange hit? Also, what is the performance difference between the Shorty and the Ti 2?

or better than FMF, get the VF3 but get the procircuit platinum pipe with the PC R304 shorty race cap silencer!!, its the best combo out there and get a new air filter, get the twin air, its awesome

readme Re: Reed/silencer combo - '05 YZ 125

Actually I'm going to keep the stock pipe, just go with a new silencer and reed setup. I'm pretty much set on the V-Force 3's. As for the silencer, would you recommend a FMF Shorty/Ti 2 or a PC R304 Shorty?
Again, thanks for the help

Just to Inform you the Titanium 2 and the Powercore2 are the EXACT same things , one just made out of tianium and more expensive. The powercore 2 is made out of aluminum that is NICE. I have one on my bike nice sound and its medium size, you wont see it as its hidden under the number plate. Personally I hate the looks of the shorty but thats just me. If i was you i would get the powercore2 or the pc shorty. I would get Powercore2.... ALSo may i suggest the Factory sound from PC? Im sure SATCH would LOVE to tell you about it as he has one on his o5 250 (YZ).

If you dont wont to lose that much on top the Ti 2 would probably be a better choice. From the way the FMF puts it the Ti 2 is shorter than the powercore2 but longer than the Shorty. Mostly it lighter than stock.

Want good all around power? Stock pipe, PC Shorty, Stock reed block with Boyesen Pro Series Reeds.

Want a SX type burst powerband? FMF Fatty pipe, FMF Shorty, V-Force3. The problem with this one is that it will fall flat too soon. Not good for fast tracks.

Want a great setup for a fast B or A rider? ProCircuit pipe, Stock silencer, Boyesen RadValve. Will come on smooth in the middle and rev like a 125 should. For a little mor pull out of the corners and a little less rev, swap the stock silencer for the PC shorty. It will still rev much better than the SX setup, and pull harder than the top end setup.

Porting does wonders on the 05 model. The transfers and exhaust are set for different RPM peaks stock. Correcting that makes a huge difference.

On the 03 and 04 YZ250 these combos work well...

Good all-around power: Stock pipe, Stock silencer, either stock reed block with Boyesen power reeds, or the V-Force system (both work about the same).

For an SX type burst power: FMF Fatty pipe, Shorty silencer, either stock reed block with Boyesen power reeds, or the V-Force system, Have the head modified for a 1.3mm squish clearance with the stock bowl shape and size and run race fuel.

For a good power for fast tracks, or an expert rider: DEP pipe (ProCircuit if you can't find DEP), Stock silencer, Boyesen RadValve.
