2010 Header on 2009 450

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this has been answered already but I wanted to let everyone know that if you damage your 2009 KX450 header (very common) you can replace the more expensive and flimsy Titanium header with a much more durable (and somewhat cheaper) stainless steel header from a 2010. If you do this, you need to get the OEM 2010 heat guard as the 2010 pipe has a differnent bend and therefore the 2009 guard does not fit.

I just fitted a 2010 pipe on my 09 yesterday. You can make the 09 guard fit. I elongated the the bolt holes and done a bit of reshaping in the vise. It looks alright. I have not ridden it yet.
