Ok ive been looking around and found a few posts but before i buy anything i want to make sure this will work. I got a 01 426f and i am not sure but i dont think i have a stock header and i was wondering about a guard for it. Here is a picture of it Here

And i found this in a post: http://flatlandracin..._Code=Universal

Now thats the mounting kit where do i get the guard? Is it a stock yamaha one or what? Any help would really be appreciated.

Yamaha dealer part number 5JG-14628-00-00 -- $44

You did not specify what pipe you have, but FMF makes a shield with a clamp for $35 FMF

My 426 had a Pro Circuit pipe. What I did was ordered a CF heat shield for it. I just took three 10mm bolts and welded them to the header in the correct place and slipped the header guard on to the bolts. Then used 'acorn" nuts to hold the guard on. Worked like a charm.

Couple years ago I bought Big Gun exhaust for my YZ400F. Damn I didn't know about TT then and ruined a couple of nice racepants with really hot header pipe :D Thank you TT, it's better later than never :)

What year and model was that from Satch? I think i might just order the stock 01 426 guard and mount it will that kit at flatland. But i like the way yours is.

the bike I had was an 01 YZ426 with a Pro Circuit T-4. The header guard was a carbon fiber unit for an 03-04 YZ450. It fit perfectly.

E-Bay, do a search under FMF powerbomb, there is a company that makes CF header guards for most MFG's. I bought one for my 426 powerbomb, and it is sweet! I will try and send a picture on a different thread. The company is ebargain or something like that. Good Luck!

I've seen some nice carbon fiber heat shields on Ebay that appear to come with a mount kit... just search for yz450.
