Let me start by saying anyone with a YZ or WR 250 should be able to answer this question. I need a speedy reply because I already bought this item, I can cancel the order before it ships though. I know...really dumb not to ask beforehand. The first and second picture have a dent in the header, the seller said this was normal. Is it? I would look at my bike and make sure but it's in the shop right now. tl:dr Does your bike have the same dent in its header as the one in the first two pictures?
