If they could patent it, it'd be funny if they included a clause in there that said "Any manufacturer can use this design except Honda, 'cause they screwed us all with the front brake line routing patent!" Yeah I know it's stupid and they'd never do that, but if it was in a movie...

I have ran a shortened 07 muffler on my 08 YZ450, but can only seem to keep it quiet for 3 or 4 rides, then the packing is just shot... I switched back to a stock 07 muffler, lost a bit of throttle response, but the bike pulls longer in each gear, and you don't have to repack it every couple weeks...
-Modifying the stock 08 muffler to be less restrictive, seems to be much more work, than its worth. It also seems to eat packing in jsut a few weekends of hard racing.
