Its the exhaust. Part #2UJ-14621-00-00
Looks like someone JB Welded it?? Odd!
Good news is if its not fixed correctly, a replacement isnt expensive:

Its either mufler repair bondo yes they make that crap or a really crappy factory weld that the coating has lifted off of with the amount of rust there I would honestly go with more of a crapy weld...

Must just be a 650 thing..... every other Yamaha I've ridden has been just fine with proper adjustment.

Do you expect to upgrade to a larger bike after you are more experienced? If so, I wouldn't spend a lot customizing a 250, you won't get your money back out of it.

650 or 950 are great bikes for smaller guys . I come from a long line of small guys so I know. I just saw a great deal on a 650 in the st Louis area. Black, custom, ultimate seat with dual backrest, saddle bags, hard chrome pipes, floor boards, etc. 2007 model reasonable miles asking 2700 obo. Sounded flexible.
