it will work, the head pipe barely touches the water pump, and the mid pipe bolt doesnt line up, but you can install it, and it will work. my buddy said that he noticed a difference, but being that it wasnt my bike, i dont really know. it sure sounds a lot better.

Head pipe works (03-05). Exhaust does not work. (As in will not bolt on to subframe). It you buy the 450 subframe it will work. But then you need to do the whole 450 conversion to your bike.

The problem of bolting the pipe to the subframe is highly variable. Some come close enough to squeeze into place, some need the mounting hole slotted, some just don't fit. Exhausts with the mid pipe as a separate part from the muffler, and/or equipped with a sliding muffler mount will usually bolt on fairly easily.
