head pipe opinion?

Recommended Posts

Just wondered about other opinions on the head pipe. It seems to be a weak place and it can get bent or crushed really easy. Is this just on the Honda? Do other bikes have this problem? Can someone invent a guard that goes on the frame kind of like a radiator brace?

When Ti gets hot it gets real soft...rocks off the front of my tire dent my header.

They sell carbon fiber guards but they only help with rock dings...not boulder smashing or crashing.

I've bent the crap out of my radiators, tweaked my subframe, bent my stock silencer, and broke god knows how many of those cheesy plastic engine guards. But in the 2 and a half years i've had my bike, I've yet to put one single dent in my stock header. :) I must be lucky or something. I'm sure though, as soon as I would've spent money on a low boy or something aftermarket, it would have been bent, dented or smashed 1st ride.
