No more burnt pants

I bought this guard after burning all of the pants I own. Should have bought it much sooner! Looks good and no more burnt pants

Save your money

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.

Extra Protection...Always GOOD!!

I got this for my powerbomb header. I wasn't getting burn from the header, but it doesn't hurt to have more protection. When the ride gets bumpy I want to know that I'm safe from rubbing up against the extremely hot header. Not to mention, the "FMF" stamped cover looks AWESOME!!! I also custom painted the cover Flat black to match my flat black engine, so only the header and exhuast is chromed out.

Motosport needs to say only fits on power bomb

Dont purchase if you have the megabomb installed on your bike it will only fit on the power bomb, other than that good design and looks cool.

Excellent addition

Bought this shield a couple months ago and am very happy with it. Easy installation (added it to a full FMF system with powerbomb) and am very happy with the extra protection it gives me. It gets plenty warm, but not nearly as hot as the header pipe get!

No more burn holes

I race a 2011 KTM 450 SX-F, and I was constantly burning holes in my gear. The leather patches on a few different brands of pants I had didn't offer the correct placement for me. The FMF heat shield fixed the problem. I had to drill the holes closer together to fit on the resonance chamber of the stock header, but since then, not a problem AT ALL. I got the titanium version and heated it with a torch to "blue" it to match my header. It has stayed in place after racing with it all season long, even after crashes. It looks like it's supposed to be there. I'll post a picture later.

Must Have

I will not ride without a heat shield. Easy to install, good amount of coverage, and looks good.

Waste of money but does the job. Just don't touch the pipe.

2008 CRF250R?
I have the mega bomb header for my CRF250R its not the actual expansion part of the pipe that burns me its the part where the pipe sticks the furthest out from the engine, will the shield fit right there? Because the bomb part doesn't burn me its the straight pipe that stick further out. Will it fit right there?

Im not certain whether the shield will fit in the location you are describing on your 250R and cant really picture where exactly you are trying to place it. It seems like you may be describing a straight section under your radiator that is different than on my bike. Attached is a photo of the shield mounted on my 450X power bomb header. This may provide you some reference as to how big it is and whether it will fit. Some further reference would be that the screw holes on the shield are 5.25 inches apart from center to center (where the clamps mount to the pipe) and the overall shield is 7 inches long. Hope that helps.

This looks like it will fit a stock header since it is all flat. Will this work on a FMF Megabomb Header since it is FMF make?
i have a 2014 KX250F and i bought a 4.1 RCT with the titanium megabomb. i put on the system and rode it in my alley once and i realized the right leg to my sweats were burned off after that. it gets super hot, super fast. i dont want to ruin my gear, will this fit a Megabomb header? if not, what will?

Unfortunately this will not work with the Mega Bomb header. It is too small and will not fit properly. Currently there is not a readily available pipe guard that will fit the Mega Bomb header for your 2014 KX250F. I am sure something can be modified to fit but currently nothing will be a direct bolt on for this application.

Will the FMF heat shield mount to a stock header and replace a dinged up stock heat shield?

This would clamp to a stock header no problem, but it will not use the stock mounts and the stock mounts may need to be cut off for clearance.

Will it replace a heat shield of a Outlander 400 Max XT 2006?
Hi i have a BRP Outlander 400 Max XT 2006 and the braket of the muffler has broken off but muffler is still good so the original metal shield is off.

This is designed to go around a head pipe and not a muffler so most likely it's not going to work for you.

This will not fit the FMF Mega Bomb Header. As of this moment there's not a head shield that fits directly onto the FMF Mega Bomb Header.

I have both the mega bomb and the power bomb headers for my bike. This heat shield would not mount on the mega bomb (it does not sit high enough off the pipe to clear the larger mega bomb chamber) but works great on the power bomb.
Zacky Over 5 years ago
Is there a heat shield that will fit the megabomb header or do you have to put up with burnt pants and boots?

As of right now i'm not aware of any heat shield that is out there for the mega bomb. Some people wrap it with exhaust tape, it just doesn't really look that great.
