Your head pipe has a lot of corrosion on it. But anyways nice looking bike. I like the looks of the 426 better than the steel framed 450's but nothing can match the 06. Before the 06 yz450f I thought that honda crf450's were the best looking bikes but the 06se blows the honda outta the water

The header pipe just has dirt on it. I must have missed that when i used the pressure washer. I just fixed a dent in it and had to remove it the header pipe. I cleaned it pretty thorough a few weeks ago. I love the 06 450's as well, but for $7000 OTD plus all the upgrades you end up doing, my 426 is doing just fine.
Probably a third as cheap in the long run and still runs great.
