07 KTM 525 XC-W Stock Head/Mid Pipe

I have my bike stripped down to the frame while my engine gets rebuilt; as I wait to get my engine back I am cleaning and polishing and refreshing everything else.

When I took my mid/header out I noticed it was flattened where it slipped between the shock and frame. It was a pretty tight fit in there so I thought it might be by design, but as I hit my pipe with a wire brush and look at it I am starting to question if it is supposed to be flattened in that area.

Does anyone know?

Mine has a small dent on the outside by the frame and a longer larger dent on the inside to clear the shock, hth

That's what I'm seeing. I should have trusted my gut.
Thanks

I have the same bike. Your pipe is as designed.

It doesn't seem like there a too many 2007 xc-w's out there. Mostly EXC's and XC's but that could just be me...

No bike does everything perfectly. In fact, no bike does anything until someone gets on it to ride.

Yeah that flat spot on the mid pipe is stock, to clear between frame and shock.
