450x exhuast on a R

Just looking for some info to see if the exhaust from an 07 450x will work on a 05 450r? My buddy dented his pipe up and is looking for something to get him by for a little while. I ask about the 07 x because I may have a friend that has one, he's trying to find it right now in his garage. I've heard it works but looking for some input.

Go to court and fight it even if it costs more to do that than just pay it. I think the BLM guy who wrote you a ticket for a totally legal sparky was smokin' some of that legal MJ out there.:smirk::lol::ride: BLM is hard up for tickets. There were half the people as usual for Halloween weekend at the Imperial Dunes this year so I'm sure revenues are tanking. Imagine that.

Here is the actual rule from the DMV. As long as you meet the requirements of (:moon: and © you are all good. Protest the ticket in writing, cite this section, and explain how your exhaust section meets the requirements. Notice the big fat "or" I highlighted...the stamp is not a requirement or they would have used the word "and." I added the busted emoticons so you would see it :lol: YOU'LL WIN!!! :smirk:

(:ride: A spark arrester affixed to the exhaust system of a vehicle subject to this section shall not be placed or mounted in such a manner as to allow flames or heat from the exhaust system to ignite any flammable material.

© A spark arrester is a device constructed of nonflammable materials specifically for the purpose of removing and retaining carbon and other flammable particles over 0.0232 of an inch in size from the exhaust flow of an internal combustion engine :ride:or :lol: which is qualified and rated by the United States Forest Service.

(d) Subdivision (a) shall not be applicable to vehicles being operated off the highway in an organized racing or competitive event upon a closed course, which is conducted under the auspices of a recognized sanctioning body and by permit issued by the fire protection authority having jurisdiction.

      Anyone having or had problems with the starter not turning over easily on the 450X???
      I have read about this problem on CRF's ONLY and not seen anyone come up with a fix.
      Problem being is that you think there is a problem with the battery, when infact the battery is OK. When you have a good fully charged battery in the bike and press the e-start, it turns over very slowly.
      I have checked the electrical circuit and it seems OK. I am wondering if it might be the starter itself - any suggestions?????

      I've studied the Jetting sticky's but still have a number of questions:
      I bought my '06 a couple of years ago and had a smog block-off kit installed and the pilot jet was upsized to a 48 and the air box opened up top only. The bike has appeared to run a little lean at times and got hot on a couple of occasions in elevation and on one other occasion. I'm looking at upping the main jet to either a 165 or 170 to help with the possible lean condition. The bike currently has a 142 main jet in it which I believe is the stock size. It looks like the most widely used Needle Jets are the JD Red, but it doesn't look like they are sold separately, is this correct?
      I was going to also get a 45 pilot to have options for further tuning. My assumption is that every bike is a little different and that where you ride is going to have a lot to do with jetting. We ride mostly, mojave desert, baja, and southern Utah with elevations from sea level to 9,000 feet but the higher elevations are generally for a short period as we generally continue through the peaks and head back down.
      I'm looking to convert from a stock exhaust to possibly an FMF Q4. I want something a little throatier but not overly loud and will provide a balanced flow of intake/exhaust.
      So can I get the JD Red Needle Jet by itself or can I get by using the stock and move the clip and be just as happy. I'm just looking to enhance overall performance of the engine and maintain reliability.
