Squshed stock header need info on FMF megabomb with mid pipe

HI Gents,
I have squashed my stock header below the mid pipe real good and also where the mid and header join is well out of shape.
I have googled my ass off (eyes are burning) and cant seem to find a FMF megabomb header and mid for the 2012 570. All sites saying 09-11 including FMF site?

I have spoken to my local dealer (Western Australia) and he advised that a new stock header is $370AU . FMF on line is around $500US and if it includes the mid pipe I'm sure this is a much cheaper option.

Questions


1. All the pictures on the websites only show the header, but state in the title header/mid pipe. Do you get both?


2. Can you get a megabomb header and mid pipe for the 2012 570?

Any help appreciated.

Thanks Cam.

The 09-12 bikes are all the same in this regard. 12s didnt come into US, so that might be why FMF doesn't list them.

I think FMF only makes the front pipe and you reuse the 'midpipe'.

Be careful that some of the FMF mufflers for this bike lists that it comes with the midpipe, but what they mean is the 2" stub out of the muffler.

I have heard of people filling the pipe with water and putting it in the freezer

Re: Squshed stock header need info on FMF megabomb with mid

I had the same concern with the listing on the FMF website but took the risk and ordered the header and slip on for my 2010 FE570. When the package arrived a couple weeks later it contained the full system: header pipe, mid pipe and muffler. Landed here in Australia for less than i could find it anywhere here! It doesn't come with its own heat shield but the stock one fit on ok, the fit is a bit tight but you have to expect that with the route these systems take to the rear of the bike. The muffler comes with mounting spacers that i found wouldn't fit my bike so i used the originals and it sits in there nicely. Im more than happy with mine!

Thanks guys
Ill take the plunge and order the fmf header/mid pipe and hope they both come. Already running the acra slip on. Pics of the system look good as the mid pipe diameter on the fmf looks like it doesnt reduce like the stock mid pipe.
Thanks again Cam.

Re: Squshed stock header need info on FMF megabomb with mid

I can only do the header at 470GBP and the tail 4.1 for 310. closest I can do but then they are from the US of A so it reallly ought to be cheaper there didn't it?

regards
