Just pulled the headers of my 76 ltd had a tiny exhaust leak just a
little hole, the headers had a dent about half way up the lower pipe,
never worrid about it, well imagine my shock when I startd to repair
the pipe, the inner pipe of the 2 layers had buckled and warpd to
nearly block the exhaust completley, bike alway sounded a bit funny on
that side had done carbs and ignition never suspected pipe was blocked.
So have look all it wasn't that big a dent on mine. Dave in OZ

My '77 had the same thing... left front header.

That would be almost like having your own restrictor in the exhaust!

I rode mine like this for almost a year before seeing the dent when cleaning up the bike. Can't say it made a difference to power when I fixed it, but I felt beter after doing it anyway.
