    CRF250X FMF Power Bomb Worth Buying?

    by oldmxer95 » Tue Jun 28, 2016 9:41 pm

    I bought a FMF Q muffler & Power Bomb header today for my 2016 250X. When I got home, I measured the diameter of the stock header & the Power Bomb. They measure the same. My question is the Power Bomb worth buying?

    If your just going to be trail riding and not doing any racing and don't have any major mods done like a cam and high compression piston , then the stock header will work about as good as any of the aftermarkets , and if your using the stock X muffler it will be much quieter than any aftermarket header/muffler setup (which keeps the neighbors and greenies happier) , as long as your jetted correctly for your elevation with maybe the top of the airbox cut , for better breathing , (which would be a must for a aftermarket header to breath correctly)the stock header should work fine and you wont notice a major difference for just trail riding

    Most aftermarket headers are usually RPM specific , where the stock header is designed for working OK everywhere , not great anywhere , but average and smooth power delivery everywhere , so you need to look at the specifics of that particular headers working range and see if it will benefit you where you usually run the bike , the key is to make the parts work with how/where you ride , if they won't gain anything , then its not worth the purchase and your better off leaving it as is ..
