With its design and materials specially constructed for 2-strokes, the Enduro Engineering Carbon Fiber Pipe Guard combines a near perfect amount of strength with the weight-savings of carbon fiber. The one-piece carbon fiber guard gives you excellent protection against impact and abrasion and is formed for a precise fit and full coverage of your stock pipe. Since this carbon fiber pipe guard is lighter and stronger than aluminum, two stainless clamps are all that is needed to give the guard an unshakable mount and keep you from having to replace a smashed pipe.
Fits stock pipes
Include stainless steel mounting clamps
Abrasion and impact resistant carbon fiber construction
Enduro engineering quality, fit and finish are top notch. Have run these guards on my last couple 2Ts and they work well for protection here in the Northeast. Have been able to scratch and take small chunks out of the carbon fiber but it is holding up very well.
Looks awesome and appears to be really well made. Would recommend to anybody who rides a 2 stroke. Installation took a little longer than expected but that was more user error. I couldn’t run the band clamp on the fatter section too easily.
I had a different brand on my YZ250 on a FMF gnarly pipe and the fit wasn’t exact so it took a while to mount. This one from EE for the stock pipe of a 2018 KTM 250XC was a perfect fit. Install took only minutes. It snapped right into place with a little pressure and I didn’t need an extra set of hands to hold anything.
Does it’s job if you think it’s gonna stay pretty it ain’t it will scratch chip maybe crack but that’s it’s job to protect your pipe. Fit is spot on the gaurd comes with hose clamps to hold it on which is ok however I used a cv axle band clamp on the large part of the gaurd to hold it on which produced a much cleaner look
I just installed this on my KTM 250sx for trail riding in BC, the last one I had lasted 2 seasons until I smaked a large rock and bent my pipe a bit, with out it im sure the pipe would have been completley totaled so it did its job, wont be mountain riding with out 1
Purchased online as a result of excellent customer service and communication via the live chat utility. The parts arrived ahead of the estimated delivery time (into Canada) and the quality was top notch.
I have about a 15 rides on this pipe guard and it has saved me some pipe damage for sure. The carbon fiber is starting to split on the bottom from logs and rocks but it is holding together better than expected
I was shocked how tight and precise the fit was on my 2018 300xcw. Guard snapped on so tight you hardly needed the clamps! (I'm kidding, you need the clamps.) Pretty hard to get mounted up. I found it much easier to pull the pipe off the bike. EE recommends you position the fat clamp with the adjuster at the top. I put mine at the bottom and think it is a better location. Mine came with a new bike purchase, but for the extra few bucks, buy a P3 instead. Much nicer guard and sold right here at Rocky Mountain ATV/MC.
Very good guard for price! Fitment was good, a little snug but once clamped down and on bike for a bit it seemed to seat in nicely. I mounted on stock pipe. Durability is very good so far, I have banged it off a few rocks and it's still I great shape.
Still on my bike after 80+ hours of HARD enduro riding. It's banged off sharp, tall rocks, it's been smashed up against logs of all sizes, and has skimmed across rock shelves the entire life of the guard. It may look rough now, but has no cracks or signs of being brittle. No dents on the pipe even if the guard has scrapes and gouges. Rigid design and still snaps right into place after 1 year of wear. Many more in my future, when this one ever wears out.
This will definitely protect your pipe! Little tough to get on but fits good when its in place. I have taken a few good hits off the pipe and the guard show that. Pipe isn't deformed or anything so the guard must be doing the job!
I have had this on my stock pipe for almost a year now and it still holding up fine. I have smashed it against dozens of rocks as well with a few logs and its still doing its job. Buy this one my buddy paid more for the e line one and its not nearly as strong.
This is a good pipe guard till a couple of rides later when it starts really burning/melting and falls apart to where you have to keep moving the clamp to hold it on because it keeps falling apart. On my second one and it is doing the same exact thing... Would not recommend this pipe guard. My dad has a pipe guard from E Line and got it a year and a half before mine and his hasn't burnt up anywhere near like mine has.
I have about 60 hours of ride time with this guard and it's holding up great. It has taken many hits and scrapes and my pipe still looks brand new. It's not quite as thick as the P3 guard but so far is holding up just as well. I highly recommend removing the guard after every few rides to clean out any dirt, mud or debris that gets in between the pipe and guard to prevent scratches and rust from forming on the pipe.

I put this on my 300xc and I couldn't be happier. It has taken the brunt of all my falls. From rocks to trees and everything else. The guard is damaged but still doing the job. And the expansion chamber is good as new. Worth the money if you want to save your pipe.
Does it's job and looks good......Until you bang it up a bunch but if you are going to use it than you are going to use it and it works well. Light weight. Smells funny the first few rides. Don't worry about it just ride!
<br>Guard cracked and it is thinner than some others I got dents in the pipe under the guard. I bought an aluminum one when I replaced this one. Looks better and seems to protect better at a fraction of the cost.
This has done a decent job of protecting my pipe but a recent fall made me rethink my previous rave. After talking to a lot of others that have CF guards it seems like the P3 is much better quality and thicker all around, I'm going with that one next. The price difference is negligible and the quality is better on the P3. I'm bummed I have this EE one now.

It seems like it's better suited for impact rather than abrasions. My fire road slide put some good gouges in it. Also I thought the fit would be better, there are some gaps and moving the guard around the pipe would close up some while opening up other areas. A good light weight choice if you're using the stock pipe.
This pipe guard looks like it can take a beating and should definitely protect the stocker. The only downside is that the large hose clamp that holds it on does not lay completely flat against the pipe/guard on the expansion part of the pipe. The other hose clamp at the exhaust point fits much better and installs flat.

It fit my FMF KTM SXS pipe and has done a great job over the last 3 years of protecting it. The SXS pipe and Fatty look very similar so I think it will work. The fit on my pipe was not perfectly flush but like I said it worked and has kept my pipe from getting damaged through lots of off road racing.
I'm not totally sure if it will fit but I would NOT buy any EE pipe guards. The P3 is a much better product, it's at least 2x thicker than the EE. If you're bent on the ee guard call them and see what they say.
