Is this dent suppose to be on the stock 00' 426 exhaust? This pipe came with my used bike that already has a white brothers pipe on it and I was going to sell the stock one but did not want to if it were damaged. I know they sometimes have dents for clearance issues and installation.

Sure is. If you search for stock exhaust dent you should get a few thousand replies about it. :)

I freaked out when I saw it on my 450 too.

Can't see your picture, but if it's a nicely placed dent on the bottom of the can then that's the dent to make room for the brake caliper when the suspension bottoms. :)

I had to copy his link and go in a different window to get it to show. Here's the pic for the lazy/un-internet-savvy out there. :)

I had no idea that this dent was pre-made for clearance. I thought I had bottomed out hard and dented it myself. Very interesting....Thanks for passing along :)

That's the pic I took to file the claim with before I realized it was supposed to be there! :)

Don't feel bad. I thought I had bottomed out and put a dent in my 426 myself. Then I noticed that everybody had a dent. :)

do any of you guys ever just go to a dealer & just look @ new bikes or are you mail ordering them/ebay purchases. :)

Sure I go to the dealer to look at bikes...

But when I buy one, I buy it from Mike at Rock River Powersports and have him ship it to me.

I got my YZ 450 from him for $5100 shipped. The local guys wanted full retail with prep and shipping added ($6199 + $700 + taxes) and wouldn't budge.

I just went to look at trading my kids pw50 in at two local dealers. One would take the bike as trade on a TTR90e and give me $1470 OTD. The other would take the pw in trade and give me $1890 OTD. Keep in mind both of those were with a $1699 retail price.

Mike will ship a TTR90 to me for $1450 and I can sell my pw on my own.

I want to support a local dealer, but come on, these guys are trying to rape me.

When I get ready for a new bike, which is several times a year- I just have my butler Jeeves carry a briefcase full of cash to the dealer and they deliver the bike. I don't have time to look it over.

Email Mike and ask him.

Mike DuClos mike@rockriverpowersports.com

I'm pretty sure he's the owner. They're very nice people and very eager to do business with you. Tell him you heard about him on Thumpertalk.
