Braided Exhaust Flex Pipe

Replacement for Yamaha Exhaust Donuts

Snowmobile season is always too short. Maintenance work is done months beforehand in hopes of having a carefree season of great rides.

Yamaha 4-stroke snowmobile models with rear exiting exhaust built between 2003 - 2018 have a frustrating and repetitive issue that can keep you sidelined over and over...
the exhaust donuts!

We Have A Solution!

Broken flanges and warn out donuts

Such a simple component, but they wear out and cause more damage than they're worth.

They are made to break down to take the chassis flex between the bulkhead and tunnel. If you don't catch the donut wear in time it can cause damage such as broken flanges and cracked pipes, eventually even destroying your exhaust.

These are pricey fixes, even if you can DIY. We know - we've done them again and again!

Copper Donuts Temporary

Copper donuts temporary

Copper donuts are an option, but not a permanent one.

There's even a flange repair kit, but it's still not a permanent solution.

Within 5,000 km (3,000 miles) you're doing the job all over again and spending more money on parts.

You can choose to replace parts knowing you're going to do the same thing again or you can install a permanent fix!
