Is it normal for titanium header to be lower then stock.mine is real low an close to rubber coolant hose.

Any idea what i can do or does any one have a stock header pipe for sale?

Is that a PC unit? Looks similar to the one I removed from a bike.

The pipe has a different bend than stock. Stock you would have to remove to do oil changes on the early F bikes. Just wrap the hose in some hi-temp insulation if you are worried about it. If it is touching, then you have bent the pipe from a crash.

My Ti header pipe (god knows what brand it is) is a different bend, sits a lot lower. header2.jpg

The heat wrap is for my protection, not the hoses. Got a nasty header pipe burn a few weeks ago :). Suggest you hake a shield like the one I made. Not pretty, but my burn got infected, was put on antibiotics, week off work etc etc Wasn't going through that again.
