I know it's a stupid question, but how difficult is it to remove the header pipe? I have never really took the time to look at it. Also for everyone that has had there header coated by jet hot. How did you go about contacting them and what did you tell them exactly you wanted done. I had a price estimate from Jet Hot on the header for my Pred and here is there words, "Expansion Chamber Double $165.00. That doesn't sound right cuz i have heard people had there's done for under $100.00. So I figured maybe i got a quote on a more expensive coating or something. That's why i was wanting peoples exact words on what they got done. What the coating and everything was called that they got done and some prices that people paid. Has anyone had the chrome plating done on there headers by jet hot, or has anyone had theres done in any different colors, can you get it done in a red color? Sorry for all the questions but I'm really interested in the Jet Hot, and just need a couple of answers. When sending it off, do you just put it in a box of your own and take it to UPS and pay for the shipping? Thanx to everyone who replies in advance. All info is greatly appreciated!

it's very easy, 4 nuts at the cylinder, 1 bolt where the silincer connects, it's also much easier if you remove the silencer, 2 bolts. watch for the gaskets/bushings where to pipe connects to the cylinder, they will sometimes stick to the cylinder and sometimes to the pipe. I just put mine in a box and took in the the post office, it was approx. $13 for two day. A-lot of users are saying that they raised there prices recently, I just called and talked to Chris, 1-800-432-3379 and he said it is still $25 for the headpipe and an additional $20 if you want blue, black or grey. The original color almost looke like chrome, you can see it on my headpipe in my profile. A-lot of the price confusion is from people not being able to give them a clear description of what they are sending in. The $75 people are being told is for a 2 stroke pipe with an expansion chamber, the price for a 4 clyinder bike header is approx. $165.

Most of the confusion is from the fact that they think that the pipe is an expansion chamber off of a two stroke bike.The sterling coating (silver) is 10.00 a foot and the pipe is about two feet in lenght so it works out to about 25.00 plus shipping.I believe that the 100 quote is for a four cylinder header pipe.They were also confused about the pipe sise on my order also but keep in touch with them,because they are very customer friendly.

Yup, they got me on the higher price too. I explained very clearly, and even offered a digital pic. I wonder if it depends on which day of the week? :) I'm very happy with the finish on both machine's pipes, but there does need to be some product clearification on their part...I'm sure it's not easy though.

Either they are not understanding and you want done or your not getting the correct measurements. I have sent my headpipe and two additional ones for buddies of mine and each time it has been $25 plus shipping back to me. Are you asking for the sterling coating? I know some of the other options are a bit more expensive, but with the heatrange our headpipes are subject to, they are not needed. Every time I have delt with them I have always went through Chris.

I have to agree with Givner..i emailed them and got a reply and was told "75 to coat the pipe. I was also quoted $65 for shipping EACH WAY! I also live in the great north, so thats prob why. All the prices i was quoted are in US funds. I was very specific and told him that i wanted MY pipe which was about two feet ceramic coated. I mentioned the $25 that others seemed to get it done with and he never made a comment on that.

I call today also and talk to Tod. $75.00 bucks also,he said the $25.00 was a mistake. I have my pipe wraped. But for $25.00 I thought why not. Also the temp drop from getting it jet hot is almost unbelievable.

later

Here is what Todd emailed me today. It appears Rngmaster is a very lucky person.

"Yes, $100 is correct. From what I recall of this pipe it is a relatively simple 2 into 1 design for a 4 stroke engine. If somebody got it done for $25, they got a lucky mistake. Most people send their parts in via UPS or FedEx ground. With the information that we’re sending you, you get a packing list that you need to include with the header. Then just call us with your credit card info and you’re set. Thanks

Todd"

I am not saying that rngmaster is a liar or anything but I guess the rest of us are going to have to settle with the $75 price tag still a good deal though when you think about it.

...also this was for the Sterling finish as well.

RNGMSTR did you notice any difference once you got it back on. To me the whole won't rust thing makes it completely worth it for the price but as far as performance does it make the difference they say such as running cooler HP increase or anything like that???

I AGAIN just got off the phone with Chris, 1-800-432-3379, about getting another headpipe done, he AGAIN, said that it was $25 for the original sterling finish and an additional $20 if I wanted black, grey, or blue.


I have been trail riding in a pretty muddy/wet area and to the dunes since having it done, the pipe still looks as it did when I removed it from the box, very nice product. I don't think the bike is running any cooler, your leg won't feel the heat as much, but I think thats just due to the coating keeping the heat in the pipe.

I think that it's a toss up on who ever answers the phone Chris told me the same thing that Rngmstr posted 25.00 for the sterling coating called back two day's later and it's now 75.00 plus 25.00 shipping.I then called again later last night and asked for Chris and Todd answers and say's that the price was right 75.00 for the coating and 25.00 for shipping.I almost told them to send me my pipe back but it would still cost me 25.00 to do that anyway so lesson learned.

Good Point, I've only spoken with Todd about it. I definately need this done though. Hopefully when I get it down there Todd is on vacation or something and Chris hooks me up. It appears that Chris has one price and Todd has another. Anyone else besides PRed and RNG get the deal??

I did mine through Chris $45 and $20 shipping. Sterling, no hassles, **** I wish they would get it together on the price for this pipe. A buddy of mine just sent out a 400ex head pipe for $45 and $20 shipping.
People when calling Chris mention the site, there is a discount which makes it $45 for the plating, search the message boards, thats why it's there, search the last year.
