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.

Very nice job   :047: . I have the front & rear extensions and find they keep the spray etc down especially at the front and also like to get as much air into the radiator as possible when on hot European tours.
