The exposed header pipes are in the direct firing line of anything that the front wheel and other vehicles in front of the bike throw up. To prevent this we created a clever protector that exactly matches the curve of the tube, made of extremely resistant aluminum alloy. It can be fitted to the original or after market Sport exhaust header systems. If the exhaust system has a balance pipe, order the extra Balance Pipe Protector separately. The protectors are attached to the bike using stainless steel clamps, this means that they are very easily installed or removed when desired.
