ebay. You can find stock fit ones or universal ones for the YZs.

Look for " yz carbon"

I am sure the seller has more. There is another guy that sells just like the stocker, but carbon fiber. They are usually about $40 though.

Carbon fiber...$99...but worth it for the header protection and saving your pants.

I have one mounted on my FMF Ti header.

You have to be aware of the ones from ebay...they use very little carbon and more fiberglass resin...weaker product...I'd order it directly from Eline..thick carbon fiber...great product.

Jeez you guys, just wrap the header and the mid pipe with header wrap (TT sells it). Not only will you stop risking 3rd degree burns from the header, you will make a 1/4 more hp.

As always buyer beware. But I have never had an issues with the CF parts off ebay. I have a header sheild on my 250F 05 with the RacePro system. No problem, super thick and still looks good.

Yep I agree header wrap is the bomb. I have it on my bike and love it. Never had a problem with it at all. Plus its cheaper than the other guards.

FMF sells a clamp on model in stainless and titanium that is universal fit 34.95 to 49.99. Put mine on the 426 and stopped burning my pants
