Let me start with I installed the stainless steel version on my 2005 CRF450R after purchasing the Power Bomb Header. The first fall on the right side of the bike on a dirt trail, the hose clamps break off and the the guard is lying on the ground, the mounts are flattened out and destroyed beyond repair. The icing on the cake, no protection offered to the header, in fact the mounts caused puncture like damage to the header. I have not tried to contact customer service yet, but for the combined money spent on header and shield, I am not really satisfied at this point. My stock header and guard lasted almost 8 years, this one is damaged within one week.
