I bought my yz426 with this bent up exhaust that is hiked up in the air. I wonder how much it is holding the bike back? Check out the pics and let me know what you think? What to get if necessary, and where to get it? Thanks

Probably pretty bad, do have have any pictures with the number plate gone & the bend exposed? And is it like a gradual bend or a sharp one?

It's a pretty sharp bend right where it bolts to the subframe. I will take a pic and post it when I get home in 40 mins with the fender off.

Please do, and the sharper the bend the more restrictive it will be

Looks like a good excuse to buy a new pipe!

Yep, thats screwed. Looks like the P O was practicing his cat walking skills. Or lack thereof.

Damn that's got to be restrictive. There are good deals on good condition used pipes on ebay for a fraction of the new pipe. Repack it when you get it and bolt it up

You need a new can and should be able to find a used one on ebay.
