I love these pipe guards. They are extremely simple to install, and can be shifted for maximum protection. I would reccomend additional pipe clamps for them. I have used multiple of these. Carbon fiber ones tend to get quite beat up and look ragged after a while.
Was easy to install and fit well (Pro Circuit Platinum II on a 2006 KTM 300 XCW). Did not really beat on the guard while ridding yet, racing VCGP next weekend and will give update afterwards. Would purchase again and would recommend to a friend.
Took me a while to figure out how to shape it but it looks good and works great. Tip: Put the first clamp on and litely tap the guard with a hammer to where you want your 2nd clamp to go, clamp it, keep going like this until you're done. Be patient and it'll shape perfectly to your pipe.
Easy to bend and shape. I just used a rubber mallet. Needs a few longer band clamps. I had to go buy some at Home Depot. If you don't dry off your pipe good after it gets wet you will notice small rust spots.
I have run these guards on different bikes over the years. Works great on the older bikes like early to mid 1980s, and that's just around the time when the shield was designed. These days I run one on my 2003 KDX220 and also had one on my 2005 EXC250. Bigger pipes like those on modern style two stroke bikes don't get quite the same coverage, but the shield still gets the parts covered that are the most prone to getting dinged in a fall or getting too close to rocks or stumps. It just takes a bit of pounding and shaping with a rubber mallet to get the shield to follow the bends of the exhaust. It's a good value for the money.
for a large two-stroke pipe. Wished it had been a little bigger on one end to better cover expansion chamber. Includes several clamps of various sizes. BTW, getting the plastic wrap from the packaging off of the guard was a tough job. Have a razor blade handy - you WILL need it.
Works well on small to medium hits but if you plan on launching grenades at your pipe, go with the carbon fiber. Installing was easy but time consuming to get it just right. (I put it on a fmf fatty) Just a tip: Don't try to bend/line it up before you bolt it on, Bolt on the top bracket first and work it down letting the clamps bend the guard where it needs to go. Also, don't get the Gold one, it looks nothing like my showa forks or excel rims.
Looked good for a while, starting to fall apart on me. Hasn't taken any real hard hits to be able to tell if it would protect the pipe. Seems to be vibrating stress cracks in the aluminum. Aluminum is thinner on this than the MOOSE guard, but good value for the money.
This pipe guard works great at a reasonable price. If you get the colored guard, it does tend to scratch up somewhat easily, but this is to be expected and is much better than beating your pipe to death... The guard would work a little better if it were a little larger but it does it's job for the price you pay.
the guard is easy to install because of the way it conforms to the pipe, (kdx220)and has provided good protection against scratches for a good price, you get what you pay for, cheap so it wont protect to much against hard hits but good enough for me
Pipe guard looks good and molded to my KTM 300XC pipe ok, but the clamps were too short to go around the big pipe. Had to double up a couple to make it work. Good price thou, much cheaper than carbon fiber.
basic protection for good price. I have fully test my guard, it does not look super strong but I have center punched large logs, nailed big rocks and my guard has helped me continue on with minimal damage. Why spend the price of a new pipe for a guard?
Priced right, looks good, Fits real well, and protects the pipe as good or better than the very expensive alternative. The neat thing about this product is that it will work with any brand exhaust by conforming to its' shape.
