While riding today, I dropped my bike on a bunch of rocks and really messed up my Header pipe.

I searched and learned some ways to fix it but there are so many creases on I dont think it can be fixed. I found a good condition 2003 YZ450F header for $50

Does anybody here know if a 2003 YZ450F header will fit a 1999 YZ400F???


Thanks for your input!!!!!!

I would look for an OEM '01-02 YZ426F header, bolts right on and clears the oil filter too.

...not true and true... i have a 450 header on my 426 and all it needed was a little heat and manipulation to fit.....the diameter was the same or dang close.
