Hey guys - I have a question - in the process of adding an FMF powerbomb header to my son's '02 YZ426F - the header comes really close (like within an 1/8 of an inch) the the coolant hose coming out of the bottom of the radiator. :ride: I am concerned it will melt the hose....any suggestions ? :crazy:

Has anyone else added this header to the 426 , and success ?

You can try heat wrap...I am thinking about putting this on mine just to prevent me from burning a hole in my jeans when I take it for a quick spin around the block.

I don't think so! It runs close on all of them,I have seen guys cut another line and wrap it using safety wire or zip ties!

The hose is OK (it's full of coolant, remember). If you put heat wrap on anything, put it on the hose, not the header.

I have the PB on my '02, it does NOT touch the hoses (it comes close), don't worry. However, 1/8" seems awefully close, mine is more like 1/2". I'm running the full Ti-4 system on my 426, the PB definitely gives the bike more hit, and is quite a rush. But to be honest, I prefer the smooth delivery of the stock header.

Torquelover, You can use the power bomb with the stock silencer. I don't know why you would, you will gain more by changing the slip-on rather than the header.

CampCounty, I have the whole system and it is close to the coolant hose, but its been on there for over a year and haven't had any problems yet.
