I just picked up an 06 yz450,its been used for 15 mins...the guy bought it after not riding for 20 odd yrs,fell off and broke his ribs and sold it to me...

The exhaust header looks like a powerbomb,but maybe bigger than your average fmf powerbomb but the same shape...it still has the original yamaha heat shield/guard fitted,which actuall goes over the powerbomb part,and the pipe looks like it is genuine yamaha .

The guy told me it was the same as yamaha fit to the limited edition models and it was on the bike when he bought it new,but I cant find the same pipe on any photo of a yz450f that I have looked at,I have even looked at all the GYTR stuff and not found a 'powerbomb ' style header..

does anyone have any ideas what it is? :applause: maybe its some kind of 'factory' pipe?

FMF has a new Megabomb header available, that's probably what it is. Go to www.fmfracing.com and dig around for pics of the Megabomb.

nahh..its not a megabomb...its same shape as a powerbomb but maybe not quite as 'finished'..looks more like it came out of the yamaha factory..
and the guy said it was on there when he had the bike new,,,,he only used it for 15 mins..the bike is 'as new'...

will post pics tomorow

"PowerBomd" is standard on the European 450's.

A simple quick search would tell you all. It is stock outside USA, very likely due to patent rights held by FMF on powerbomb. It smoothens and broadens the powerband and makes the bike quieter, although I cannot verify that as I have not tried a 2006 450f one without it.

I'd like to get my hands on one of those... if any of you lucky enough to have one stock go to an aftermarket exhaust let me know what you would like for your stock "Powerbomb" header (good condition of course).
