Use the stock one so that you can feel the difference after swapping the exhausts .

Good advice, but except for the reference, it matters not with which one the bike is broken in.

Why not just ride the bike stock and get used to it before you go pumping it up? It might not even need an exhaust! I would like to put money on that for your riding level (not that it is low, just not pro) the bike nearly stock would be more bike than what you need ... (except jetting and suspension setup possibly)

Im happy with the stock exhaust on my 08 450. The bikes got plenty of power. I came off an 05 250F that was all stock also. But I dont ride mine at the track either. Just trail riding.

haha Yea that would be a jump. Be aware that the yz450f (if you live in california) is red sticker.

I went from a '79 XR 250 to a '02 YZ426F that was one hell of a jump! I had brakes! Something that i didn't know of before and suspension travel! What a amazing concept! haha :thumbsup:
