We hardly recognised the highly sensitive header pipe assembly on our GS after the first off-road excursion: twisted and dents everywhere.
The exposed pipes are in the direct firing line of the front wheel: Anything thrown up and away by the front wheel can hit the pipes unhindered. This can only be prevented by a sophisticated protection: The protector exactly matches the round radius of theheader pipe assembly, made from stainless steel.
Extremely resistant stainless steel alloy lending new and lasting appeal to the otherwise brownish pipe. Also fits our sports header pipe assembly (protection of the balance pipe not necessary).
