Dent in stock pipe...

5 posts in this topic

the underside of my 01 426 pipe is dented...Looks like a pretty clean dent..No noticable ding from anything..Its right in line with the rear brake caliper... Is that clearance yamaha stamped into that pipe ???

Or just a dent from bottoming the suspension..??

I have a 03 yz450f and when i bought it from a friend of mine it already had a dent in it from bottoming out because the factory muffler is sort of wide. It was a fairly large dent to. So i put a FMF Ti-4 on and never had to worry about bottoming out and damaging it again.

It is'nt a dent. Comes from the factory that way. Bought my bike new and had to check a magazine shootout to see if it was normal. Glad I did'nt phone the bike shop and freak out. Not to sure why it's built into the pipe, but it's supposed to be there.
