I just got my '03 YZ450F. :lol: :busted: This is my first thumper, and it is also my first 250 class bike. This YZ is incredible, it will wheelie in all 4 gears without clutch :banghead: :banghead: and it has so much torque I find it hard to believe. It was a bit of a step up to, seeing as I used to ride a 2000 KX 125, but It is awsome and I dont think I will ever be able to ride anything else. I hope these pictures work. One problem though. The guy I bought it from endoed it on a 60 foot step up, and thus the little bit of pipe in between the muffler and the header pipe is bent and the top of the muffler is bent down a 1/4 inch as well. How much would it cost, and where would I go to get it fixed? I dont want to buy an aftermarket pipe, because this bike already has a little too much power for me right now. You can see the little bend in the pipe in the last picture. It is not too bad but if it wont be too terribly expensive to repair I would like to go ahead and fix it even though it doesnt affect performance

Want to see a performance gain? Get a new rear tire.

That bike will scare you with a new rear.

Maybe this guy should put on a pipe from a WR??

Well actually the whole pipe matter should be taken care of very soon seeing as a TTer has offered to sell me one and ship it for $75
