anyone know where i can get a used header pipe for my 2008 crf 250x ?? i call dealer and they are back order until end of august ....also can i damage my engine if i run with a bend/kink pipe ?
thanks
 
Didn't read your second question. Can you damage your engine. No, 4 strokes don't need backpressure like 2 strokes do.

I'd run the header as is, as long as it isn't touching something it would ruin. Like a rad hose, or clutch cable.

Depends how bad it's dented.

A couple dents, no problem at all, keep it like that until it looks like the other ones below. Don't worry about it.

Like that... nope, get a new one.

I believe restricting the exhaust usually would make it run richer, so it shouldn't be more dangerous. Exhausts leaks however can be bad.

If you go aftermarket (most would), just make sure the header is a direct replacement, sometimes they are designed around their own silencer as well.
