I just saw this on eBay . . .
I think whoever owned this GT80, really wanted a 4-stroke.
They decided the next best thing was to convert the muffler over to a megaphone.

. . . on the other hand, it might just be the optional Yamaha winter-tyme "shin" warmer exhaust pipe . . . they came with a package of ear plugs, if I remember correctly !

Of all the sketchy "repairs" I've seen this is my favorite:



A piece of wood to fill the void in an RT3 crankcase that must have suffered a snapped connecting rod.

Also I believe you could flip that sprocket over and get another 10,000 miles out of it.
