Just joined TT today first post of any kind. I purchased an 00 426f and was wondering if i could get some help. My first question would be is there an exhaust pipe that can be purchased to eliminate the pain of having to disconnect the head pipe every time you change the oil filter. second question padding on the seat is not enough any one use an SDG or other replacement seat, if you have did you use the tall or just regular replacement seat. thanks for your help. As for being new to TT i have visited the site before but this is the first time i have posted. i will let my yamaha brothers know that i also own a honda crf 450. i have enjoyed the new thumpers of today. To me it doesn't matter what color it is, they are all good. any way thanks a lot fellows.

Welcome!

Most all aftermarket head pipes (and 2001-2002 stockers) will allow you to change the oil filter without removing the pipe.

Also, ALOT of us use SDG seats.....I highly recommend the tall seat.

Most all head pipes will solve the problem. Try some paded shorts as well.

a stock 2001 yz426 header pipe will also do the trick.

Hopefully you already know this, but you don't have to remove it, just loosen it at the head and the pipe. Then you can twist it up enough to have access to that top screw...Now, if you're looking for less weight or more power then you may want to go aftermarket, but definitely not worth buying an '01 or '02 oem though. :cry:

I also own a 2000yzf and the first thing I did was put the sdg seat on, excellent choice, I have had it on every bike. Go with the tallest one

The Dr. D. system worked great on my '00 426. It looked good, ran great, and
allowed me to access the oil filter without having to loosen the head pipe.
Just my $.02...

Lots of people who buy aftermarket pipes sell their stock ones on E-bay...I have seen 01+ stock headpipes go for as little as $15 bucks.. Also, there are people there who buy perfectly good running bikes, rip them apart, part them out peice by piece... :cry: ...must be profitable or they wouldn't do it ....and the buyers get super good deals..( compared to buing parts from your local yamaha "stealer" )

Hey,

I'm almost positive that a 2001 header won't clear the oil cover for the filter. you need to go aftermarket.

Pro circuit will clear
