Take them to WaL-Mart, they'll take anything back.

i like heat shields on head pipes...just sayin

Done the same thing several times, including last month to a brand new pair of Klim's.:thumbsup: Usually not on my bike but when I'm taking a look at a buddies bike.

what really sucks is every time you ride from this point on, you will smell your mistake once the pipe heats up.

join the club dude lol

Yep, first time I rode my sons new crf it happened to me. It's gone now...:thumbsup: BRAAAAAAAPPPPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!

once you've scraped most of the burt stuff off the header, using oven cleaner and scotch brite will get the rest off. sucks about your new pants though :thumbsup:

Get a 2 stroke and you won't have to worry about that.

heat shields on the header pipe is a VERY SMART thing to have, why? if you ever crash and that exhaust falls on you.... look out.... even with a heat shield it helps alot, my bro, on a 84 DR 100 4 stroke, crashed, and the muffler was on his leg melted his skin, he got 2nd degree burns on his calf, and thats from a smaller bike... imagine a 450, i'd say instant 1st degree burn.....

Get a 2 stroke and you won't have to worry about that.

The oil stain thread is two doors down....

thanks captain obvious.

I'm more pissed that my pants melted on my nicely heated purple and blue FMF TI mega bomb header, leaving it black and ugly!

This.

I haven't had this problem since my 4t's became someone else's problem.:thumbsup:

:thumbsup: never takes long. Think I went a week with my new pants before I had a hole melted in them.

I have lots of gear with burn marks and holes in it, usually happens on the 1st or second ride with new gear...and yes it SUCKS BIGTIME!

all part of it. like a new helmet, drop it before you wear it to get the first crash out of the way.

Yup, this happened to my new gear when I bought my first 4T back in 2003. Since then I steer clear of the header. But, then again I own a 2T now! :confused: And no oil stains...just gotta jet properly man! :thumbsup:

did the same, 2nd ride on my klim dakars
