Powerbomb on 2006 450

Well it was a big surprise for me that it comes with a large powerbomb header

i dont remember seeing that on the new 450 at the bike show this weekend hmmmm

its not on the website eaither...might be something different...

The dealer said 5 bikes are at present in Europe, this bike was flown from Italy for dispaly and I specifically asked about the canister and they assured it is all stock. Last minute changes? They said it smoothens and broadens the powerband.

That's the same effect the FMF Power Bomb has on my '03.
:banghead: *drools allover himself. I love that bike, and I haven't even seen one in person yet.

The australia report in todays threads also shows a power bomb header on the 450F.

wow that would be sweet..

in other news, FMF prepares to sue lol

....if thats the stock muffler, whatever happened to "mass centralization"? Looks like a lot of weight hanging out back there! Does the powerbomb header chamber make the bike loud enough to warrant that thing?!

That exhaust will be the first thing to come off of mine. If that muffler was any farther back there, you would need to tie a red rag to it!!!!

Actually, the FMF unit knocks off 1-3 db.

anyone been able to confirm this story??

The bikes you guys saw were europe only models. They dont have a powerbomb on them for performance, it is for noise. Same with the long muffler-they have to be 98db over there. Also the euro bikes come stock with pirellis. The US models will have a straight header as well as a shorter muffler.

Im doing suspension (pro-action revalve/spring (maybe DLC for some bling bling)) first - probably within 2 weeks of purchase and some other stuff first too.
