In practice, what damage does such a guard protect against?  I would have thought the exhausts (I assume to be stainless steel) would be fine with a bit of water and grit coming up off the road.  That's the only reason I haven't looked into getting one...I couldn't see the need.  This is not to belittle anyone's efforts on making them; they look great. But are they really necessary?

I am hoping it will prevent some of the tar that covered and burned on to  the front of my headers getting on there in future.
