Why Bolt On a Pipe Guard?
Properly designed 2 stroke pipe guards will protect exhaust pipes from power robbing dents and increases horsepower by elevating gas flow temperature. Four Stroke header pipes typically run at higher temperatures (up to 900 degrees F)than two stroke pipes. When a header pipe gets that hot it can ding easily. E Line’s four stroke pipe guards protect the header pipes from roost dings as well as protect pants and boots from burns.
How Does A Full Coverage Guard Differ From A Moto Guard?
E line manufactures two types of pipe guards. The Full Coverage Pipe Guards protect pipes from side or frontal impact and have an extra layer of composite material. Moto Pipe Guards primarily protect the pipe from frontal roost dings and are manufactured with a lighter weight composite of Kevlar and carbon fiber.
What’s The Best Material To Use?
E Line uses a composite of carbon fiber, Kevlar, fiberglass, and high temperature resins in custom molding pipe guards. This combination of materials distributes any impact over a large area to reduce the pipe damage. The lightweight composite has 75% greater tensile strength than aluminum. Aluminum guards or thick wall pipes will not distribute impacts as well and weigh more than E Line’s composite material.
Why Custom Mold Each Guard?
Just about every exhaust pipe has a different shape. A pipe guard molded to a specific pipe shape eliminates gaps while covering exposed pipe surface. E Line has custom molds for over 150 guards ( 50cc – 525cc motorcycles) for stock, ProCircuit, FMF, Doma, and Bill’s pipes.
How Do The Guards Mount?
The two stroke guards use two stainless steel clamps that wrap around the pipe. The exhaust pipe does not have to be removed for guard installation. Four stroke guards for most stock pipes use standard welded on tabs. E Line fabricated stainless steel brackets are used on aftermarket pipes without mounting tabs.
What Do The Guards Weigh?
The guards weigh between 9 – 20 ounces depending on the model. Light enough so that factory motocross teams including Team Honda and Factory Connection use E Line Moto Pipe Guards. Team Yamaha Offroad, and Team KTM Offroad use E Line Full Coverage Pipe Guards.
