I’m looking to put on a pipe guard. I want something light weight but strong. Any suggestions. Thanks

I'm running the P-Tech skid with pipe guard and linkage guard.  Not much weight to them.  

This. Much lighter than expected and very easy install.

No problem.

One thing to note, if you are going to run a FMF Gnarly you need the skid for the 300RR. If you are going to run the stock pipe, get it for the Xtrainer.

Get the gnarly pipe.  Its like having a pipeguard.  I went down on grapefruit sized rocks.  Not a dent.  Oh, and you get smooth monster torque and more top end than stock.

Stock XT pipe is tinfoil strong concerning dents. 

Yep.  Fortunately for me,  17YZ250F put the gnarly on his bike, so now I have a spare for mine!  Plus, the dealer over in Dearborn also gave me a new one of his after he swapped pipes.  So I can bash up 3 of them.  But I have the P-Tech, so probably won't have any problems.

Hi markbfe501, nice having 3 of them to destroy. P-Tech seems like way to go so that doesn’t happen

Ptech if you like strong. P3 carbon if you like light. There's a guy not far from me selling the Ptech if you are on FB there is a Beta xtrainer page.

I think I would still get the pipe guard even if I decide to get the gnarly. Thanks

By the time you buy a decent skid plate and some sort of pipe guard, it's really not that much more to buy a p-tech (or similar)

I'd rather have 1 pipe and keep it protected then dinging up pipes.

Agreed.  Riding locale has something to do with the decision too.  Here in MI its almost all sand and dents are rare.  If u do dent one its usually from logs.  With a beefy gnarly on, even more rare.  Now if ur riding rock gardens and log pits the added protection is sensible.  Adding guards and weight that comes with them might not be a benefit for some riders depending on what and where you ride.

But if u ride only drummond island disregard all that.  I thought i was across the globe with all those rocks!

Force accessories bash plate/pipe guard combo is where it's at!....although even with that and a cheap wrap guard on my fmf gnarly. I still manage to find a way to dent my pipe. That said it would be a folded pancake with a jelly filled premix center by now without it. 20181102_115358.jpegScreenshot_20181209-072415_Gallery.jpeg
