Maybe I should look for a nice shiny 08 and newer header, hmmm. I wonder if someone cut my "original" one. It's for sure shorter or maybe it's off a similar 1 cyl Kawi. I thought something was odd when I tried to take off the oem muffler and the nut was hidden behind the frame but the youtube showed it clearly easier to access. Thanks guys.
You talked about a diameter difference as well as the length difference.
The OEM muffler to header joint clamp has always been behind the rear brake reservoir. One doesn't need to disturb it very often!
