Hi anyone know where I can get a new front header for my Hypermotard?
I havn't priced one from Ducati but figuring it will be expensive

Just discovered a dent and scratches in mine not too bad about 15mm wide 2.5-3mm deep, sure it won't really affect running more cosmetic.

I have definitely not rode over anything like a high kerb or like, I can only think that this has been caused by a stone flying off the front wheel?
Frightening to think if this can be done to exhaust what it could do to engine casings or oil filter!

Never had this on any bike I have ever owned so I am a bit puzzled how it has happened, I didn't think a stone flying up could have dented an exhaust, I have often had front pipes marked by stones but not dented, I am sure no one has knocked into it either

I guess it would probably repair either but not really worth it if I can find a cheap replacement header. I have not seen any after market headers that replace the original ones.

I also had a odd chip or too of the paint on rear wheel, the bloody roads in England are getting worse and worse these days some are breaking up so there is often loose stones about and also they get washed from tracks joining roads and the road sides themselves etc by all the heavy rain we get.

I need a standard fitment haeder as that is what I am using with my Leo Vince mufflers and cat replacement pipes.

Any advice appreciated.

I just installed a Zard Penta exhaust system on my Hyper and still have the stock exhaust system (including headers). I'll be willing to sell you the front header--send me a private message.
