will 00-01 headers fit on a 98-99 motor. looking for a used exhaust and theres just so many more options for 00-01 so I'm thinking about changing the headers so I can take advantage...

NO 98-99 WILL NOT fit on 00-01... the spacing is different-- i tried a 01 header on a 99 motor...and it didnt fit....

I have a 00/01 micron header on my 98 and it fit the only difference is the oil filter goes between the numbers 1 and 2 tubes instead of the 2 and 3. But it may all depend on the manufactor.

I was looking at a factory header just so I could get a cheap used slip on but I'll just keep waiting for a deal on a bolt on

If it's any good to ya, I have the header off a 99 CDN superbike on my 03. The 99 I assume uses a flat flange, whereas my 03 used a round gasket sleeve. In my case, I just re-used the old flat gaskets that came with my header pipe and hi-heat siliconed both sides of them and bolted the flanges on! Then the pipes slid onto the flanges. Keep in mind, this just may be the way my particular headers work.

BTW, spacing I would think is the same. Same head...well blocks are interchangable aren't they?
