3TB headers

After a load of years the headers have finally rusted through where the diameter changes at the port. So, two questions........

1 : does any one in the UK have a header lying around for sale ready to post?

2 : what is the best v cheapest option for a new replacement ?

3TB XT600E

Cheers

Ebay you find alot of the old headers with rust and paint over.. I bought the ALU headers and they fit good, look good a little bit bigger inside and you never have to worry about the rust again.

Yes its a bit difference on the front pipe to the right side, no mounting for pipe guard on the side and not high polished. It will do the same job and no more rust for you, you get satisfied
