I have a WB carbon pro II, I had a little wreck last week and dented in my header.
I called WB/Vance and talked with a guy about the chances of getting a header for it, he said it would be until June until they (Vance) opens WB’s inventory. He said if it did not have a crack in it, it would be alright to ride, said it would give me crazy low end power???How much more low end do you need on a 450???

My dilemma is do I buy a whole new/used system on eBay for $400++ or do I buy a slip on and use my stock header, put my stock exhaust back on or invest in another $700+ in a whole new system??
Or any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I was able to get a replacement Stainless header for my Alum Pro2 recently. I assume you are looking for the Ti header. These are/were available through Distribution but were not cheap. Call Maximum Dirt - ask for Chris and see if he can locate for you. 404-886-3604. great guy great service

if the dent is on the bend fill it with water and throw it in the freezer over night. dont plug the ends. it might need 2 nights but if it doesnt work then it prolly wont work. worked for me on my yz250f.

I had a dent in the header on my WB Carbon Pro that I had on my CRF. It never gave me any problems and I never noticed any difference in power.

The water trick will work. If there is no creasing it will almost be unnoticeable after 2 to 3 freezes. Be careful when you first take it out of the freezer the material will me a little brittle at that low temp. Lay it out allowing it to return to room temp before any major handling.
