Pipe guard options?

Postby jgrobinett » 06:00 pm Jun 28 2013

Just picked up a new to me KDX 220r. Coming off an 02 XR250. Loving the power and speed of these 2 strokes. Wish I had one sooner.

I purchased an FMF Gnarly Desert Pipe and naturally, wanting to protect my new investment, am looking for a pipe guard.

I've tried searching but am not having much luck. Whats the best aluminum and/or carbon fiber pipe guard available? Looked a Fredette racing per someones recommendation, but no luck.

Welcome to the forum. Here is an option:

Thank you, Julien D for all your hard work!

PLEASE! Do not "dip" PWK Keihin carbs in Berryman's to clean them! It will damage the internal o-ring (jet block gasket).

I KNOW ive seen people put on carbon fibre pipe gaurds
just don't know where they came from

you know, if you just watch where you're going you don't need a pipe guard anyway :lie:
