Any news on a DRD pipe for the 450??

Has anyone heard if there is a new DRD pipe coming for the 450? I am wondering if the rear section or silencer for the DRD 426 pipe will be the same or not for the 450 as well as if there is going to be a head pipe from DRD. Any ideas?

I traded emails with Gina about a month ago and they are making 2 "slip ons" for the 450. I think 1 Stainless and 1 titanium They feel that the Titanium header is a good one and will not be offering it.

I e-mailed Gina one week ago. She said the stainless steal tail section should be ready within a week, you should e-mail her at As a tt-member you'll probably get a discount as well. The Ti pipe is going to be ready in a couple of months. She seems really nice, and is always quick to answer you e-mails.

You will not get better service and support than from Dr. D.

I have been talking with them for the last couple of days. The pipes are in stock at the shop (SS Pipe), but, they haven't got a price yet from the manufacture. The pipes should be ready to sell by Thursday or Friday. I live real close so I will be picking one up from the shop as soon as they are available.

Oh yea, they will have a Spark Arrestor but are not sound regulated, it's a SS pipe only, not offering the header, but why would you want to dump the stock TI one anyway.

I talked with Zach Bradshaw (Damons brother) who was out a t Perris (CA,) Raceway on Monday/Tues. He was staying with the Dubachs until today and riding a 250F of Dubachs. He said he rode a 450 with a Dr. D Pipe and described it as "Explosive". He also said the 450 had a flywheel weight. Contact DRD, this might be an inside line for you 450 guys. This doesn't help with availability but it is a preliminary report from a pro.

      So I have a 2008 yz450f and I would like to add some LED lights to it to make it street legal. Mainly just a headlight and a tail light and turn signals if I need to (which where I live hand signals work).
      So where I need help is getting power from the stator to a battery. Wiring from a battery to anything else I got and understand and don't need help with (but recommendations are welcome). So my questions are.
      What type of power is coming from the stator. AC or DC? Will I need a regulator or rectifier? How do I wire something from the stator to charge a battery? What would that wiring look like? Would this stator work? Anything else I should know? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

      Alright so I’m new to the site so maybe this question has already been asked. I have a 2002 Yz426f and I want a new exhaust, it has the stock header and silencer and sounds amazing but I’d like a little more from it, I know I want the fmf power bomb header and am kind of undecided on the silencer, I see on fmf’s website that their silencer will add low end and slightly take from top end and the other way around but I’m looking for increases throughout rpm range. I do a lot of trail, hill climbs, jumps, and wheelies so kind of need good performance everywhere in the rpms. My question is what silencer I should get and the jetting I should get for the carb. Thanks

      2005 YZ450F, Athena Big Bore, Power Bomb, Q4.
      Ok.  Last fall after a decently hot day at the track, I noticed coolant leaking from the weep hole on my water pump after pulling into the pits.  Ordered an Athena re-seal kit, put it all back together and didn't really get a chance to ride it.  3 weeks ago, went out to the track, and after about 20 laps, it started leaking again.  Kept filling it with water to get thru the day, never ran anywhere close to dry or empty, jut a cup or 2 low.  Ordered a Hot Rods re-seal kit with bearing and also ordered a new w/p shaft.  Did it all again and got it back together, ran it, and as soon as it got to temp, it was leaking out of the weep hole again.
      So, what the heck am I missing?  I'm totally stumped on this one.  Is something wrong with my case cover?  Do I need to replace the w/p itself?  I'm feeling like I should've just ponied up for the Boysen in the first place, and now it's biting me in the butt.  Any help or suggestions is greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

      Alright guys, my 04 YZ450f runs fine minus some slight backfires when decelerating (need to adjust fuel screw). The other day when I was done checking my valve clearances I changed the oil and filter and put the bike back on the stand, kicked it a few times without the ignition coil in to get some oil flowing got off and noticed a little drip spot on the ground, it was no bigger than a dime so I thought nothing of it. Started the bike with no issues took it for a quick 10-15 min ride, came back to the garage to find out my whole case was soaked with oil and it started pooling in the low spots on the clutch basket side. I cleaned all the oil off and took it out again for 5 mins to try and see where it was coming from, here are my three possible places but nothing directly leads me to believe it’s any of the three either.
      1. Decompression plug area
      2.  Valve cover gasket leak (not really sure because the amount of oil leaking Looks to be a large amount
      3. Oil tank (bad weld or cracked weld somewhere
      what are you guys thinking?
