Question Exhaust Header Pipes

Hello all Yamaha owners, First post.

New 2004 Yamaha R6 (13k) Owner. This is a great forum and thank you all for the information, i have done lots of research on this site and fix everything so far.

The only thing i couldn't figure out was would a " 02 Yamaha YZF R6 Exhaust Header Pipes S29" Fit on my 2004? One of the pipes is cracked currently makes a really loud noise, wanted to replace it. Couldn't figure it out

Re: Exhaust Header Pipes

Aloha!!!!!

Why don't you take it to an exhaust shop and have them weld your header? This would be a simpler solution.

He is lazy that's all it would help if you remove them yourself and take them to a muffler shop from the picture it looks like the original weld is where it has cracked which is an easy fix as long as the flange isn't cracked then you would have issue with it sitting flush if its not done correctly. Approximate price to get that welded is about $20 and a beer

It can be easily be welded. The best process would be to tig weld with stainless rods! you may have to grind down the weld a bit for the flange to still move
