Removing Headpipe For Oilchange.

9 posts in this topic

I'm tired of removing the exhaust system to change my oil (2000 YZ426). Is there an easier way to do it? Also, will the White Bros. Titanium header solve this problem? What's the difference between the three different headers?

Yes, the White Brothers hi-boy header eliminates the need to loosen the exhaust to get at the oil filter cover. This header is matched at the exhaust port for full flow. I'm using this header along with their carbon fiber silencer. I've found this system to enhance the bottom-end substantially. I've found the best results when used with race fuel and careful jetting.

You dont need to remove the header, just loosen it up and rotate it up enough to get to the filter.

I believe that almost all of the aftermarket headers clear the oil filter. If you like the stock pipe, see if you can find a 2001 header for your bike. There are usually plenty of them at this site or on something like http://eBay.com/

Thanks for all the responses, I think I'll probably get the White Bros. header. One last thing, will my stock muffler work with the White Bros. header or will I have to get a new muffler too?

Yes, the stock silencer will fit on the White Bros. header. Use a new o-ring gasket at the junction while you are at it. I run both high boy and E series.
