I can get a power bomb header for my bike for free(a friend took one off of a bike he sold a while back). My bike now has a White Bros. E-series muffler . Will it be worth my time to install header and will the header work with the White Bros. muffler?

I had one on my 01 426 and didn't notice much of a difference in power but the bike was a bit more quiet. If it is free and not to bent up give it a try to see if you like it. Make sure the exhaust gasket is intact when you swap headers, you don't want an exhaust leak.

The PB header smooths out the hit and make the power a little more user friendly. They also drop the exhaust note about 1 dB. I have one and like it. :excuseme:
