I know i need tires! the reason i need/ want the headers is because i crushed them a week after i bought the bike and i havent seen any drop in performance but i can see alot of discoloration in the pipes compared to my buddies bike.
So im worried the longer i wait the more chance i have a chance of f*#king up the valves because the extra heat and back pressure. i would rather spend $500 on headers than 3k on a valve rebuild.
my pipes are a dark brown with some rainbow color, and my buddies bike is still that nice gold color. we ride the same trails and have had our bikes for almost the same time.
