Nope ....there is very little performance gain to be had by swapping silencers much less the header pipe. I actually swapped Gen2 header pipes onto both of my Gen1's.
The biggest performance difference you'll notice from the header swap is the increase in performance due to your wallet being lighter!

2 cents,

Well said Dave. If you consider noise a benefit that's about all you'll gain.

My Kaw Barn - 2004 KLR, 2006 Concours (sold), 1997 Bayou 400.

"It's a friggen motorcycle, it's not supposed to be comfortable, quiet or safe. The wind noise is supposed to hurt your ears, the seat should be hard and riding it should make you shit your pants every now and then. "

Head pipe doesn't matter as much as the exhaust you use.. Keep your air filter clean and use a slip on muffler and you'll improve your intake and rpms
