is there the same diference in the Yamaha stock header of an 06 YZF (which has a "megabomb") ?
is it compatible with WR 07?
The 07-08 WR header is 38mm at the outlet
The 07-08 YZ headers are 45 mm at the outlet. (FYI the European YZ header is different)
I think the 06 YZ header is 41 or 42mm at the outlet. But don’t quote me.
I think with the right OEM gasket you can make any of them fit the stock WR silencer. But that stock silencer is a turd. I would replace it with a quality slip on. Why not drive on over to Italy and get a nice Leo Vince x3 slip on.
And Good luck figuring out what the FMF pipe is. They never responded to my emails in regards to the subject and have no documentation on their website.

Gas in europe averages about $8-$10 a litre. It'd be WAY cheaper to have it shipped
its only a 20 hour drive. and they have them smart cars

Should fit no problem. Any aluminum frame model YZ exhaust should fit. The header will now slip into the slip on without an adapter. I've never seen a YZ header like that before though
I'd bet $2, that the eruo 06 header is 42mm and the FMF inlet is 45mm. he may have to fab a spacer.

anyone know if a similar year yz header is larger and will fit my 2000 wr?
The headers between the 98-02 YZ/WR will freely interchange between model years. The bend on the header changed in 2001 (I believe) so you could access the oil filter without loosening the header. I'm pretty sure the diameter of the header remained the same through the five years for both the YZ and WR.
