YA Say NObody Makes a Good Aftermarket Header Guard??

8 posts in this topic

I think the Stock Yamaha Guard works Great for the FMF Powerbomb. ...Just weld on 3 8mm Stainless Steel bolts, add a nut on the bottom to act as a spacer, and a washer and nut on the top and Whoop...ther it is!

Plus when it's all beat up just buy another one.

Cost less that $4.00 in hardware to modify.

NO MORE DESTROYED $130.00 MX PANTS...HOOOOOA!

'Kaz,

I AM going that route as well. The welders here at my plant LOVE to do home projects. I was trying to get it done last week.

Kevin,

Just make sure that you tell them to use the lowest setting on the welder. It's way easy to blow a hole in the header on the normal settings cause the metal is so thin. Also take care to go all the way around the bolt head or the header will crack in the weak spot and have to be re-welded later.

Freestyle...

That guard is beefy for sure...I guess if you hit a big tree or have a side impact with a Mack Truck the pipe would stand a better chance of survival. The only Issue I ever have is burning the right knee out of my new pants...This will stop that for sure.

if you bring it to any welding shop or muffler shop they will weld it for around $20.i will you cost you that much in gas to drive it over to me and picking it up.i will weld it for you if you want but i think it would be much easier for you to just walk in to your nearest muffler shop with guard and nut in your hand and them to weld it.if you ask the welder personally he probably wont even charge you.
