I just got my first pocket bike (ive wanted one for a really long time) and it was used. Supposedly needed a pull start so i fixed that and then my exhaust pipe snapped. Its an X-treme XP-489 and im pretty sure it has the same motor as a Calligri, so i was wondering if i could just buy an oem calligri exhaust pipe?
