I just got back from the Milan motorcycle show in Italy, I noticed on the 06 450, that it had a head pipe like the FMF fat head pipe, (the one with the big bulge in the head pipe) But on the USA head pipe they don't have the same one. Anyone have any info on this?

Ah, It was a stock pipe otherwise I would have not mentioned it.

I saw an '06 450 yesterday, and it had a standard pipe (no power bomb).

The header is stock on EUR bikes, not on US bikes.
