Exhaust header guard

5 posts in this topic

Does anyone have a solution to the problem of burning the right leg of your trousers on the exhaust header ? My bike is a YZ400f.

I have noticed some headers have a guard on them to prevent this. Maybe there is an aftermarket guard that can be clamped onto the exhaust header.

Any ideas/suggestions ?

There is a wrap you can get at the nearest Bike shop or Auto Zone. Called header wrap it is used on cars and bikes..

Thanks, I picked some up today, will install it during the next few days. Should do the trick just fine.

I would go with an E-Line or something like that. It is an Exhaust shield like a stock one. I heard that wraping the header will burn it out. Plus with the header open it dissipates heat more rapidly. Here is another post.
