"Looks" like a aluminum pro, but the stock header is throwing me off..

I love mine and hope you have as much fun on your as I do mine. Be safe, she can get you into trouble with all the power. Oh by the way get a D.I.D. VT "T" ring chain. I have already gone through 2 ERT2's. You have to oil non o x t ring chains every 10 min it seems.

cheers guys,yeh the pipes an aluminium pro,new chain and sprockets are on the way,didnt have what i wanted in stock at my local bike shop so its coming.
hey wes is that did vt t ring chain the one thats meant for the honda,i saw that at the bike shop but i wasnt to sure which one to get,i got a did er 520mx gold chain,non o ring,so i might swap for the one your talking about.
i had the wb header on it,but i thought id try the stock header,only because of the oil filter access,i know its only loosening a couple of bolts but!!ive got to say though,i really couldnt tell the difference between the stock header and the wb header,so i decided to leave the stock one on.

I noticed your pipe came with the smaller diameter end cap??? or did you change it out to that one?

Beautiful bike, mate. Hurts me to hear it's that much better than an 03. That's what I have and it's way over what my 426 was. I may have to man up for that 08 model!

I have one of the first 08 450f's available (purchased in aug) and it is night and day better over my 06. Even though my 06 had more rip-it power, I am faster on the 08. I can throw this thing around like a 250f and wip it over the 100 footer at my local track without feeling out of control. Putting a 50 tooth rear on it made a huge difference at the track. Also changed the rear tire to a 110. Better handling in tight turns (in my opinion). I like the sound so I kept the can. can't stand a loud 4-stroker. best bike i ever owned or ridden.
