Well so far so good may be because i wear tight or slim jeans , but 2 Days ago i started my bike for some electrical test and i burned part of my legs touching this pipe looking around for something else, so yes i need to find a protection.

Thanks,
Compare to your touches, mine are effectively little, and may be one day i will give her a complete New dress as yours.
Next mods : Offroad tires, New pegs ( need to find info on that point ) and a smaller front fender, as some AT i found have apparently smaller one and it looks like they have cut them nicely to give them a youger touch, no ?

A friend of mine just did a similar install with a Remus in his AT; his riding pants are wide enough to wear boots under them... 1.000 km and a few stops later his brand new header was black and we had to fix his pants with tape
Congrats again, your AT is a beauty!

they don't seem to ship internationally, neither are these pegs listed on the website of the company that produces them, and I don't seem to be able to find someone else that distributes them
too bad :)

You can get them on ebay, there are sellers that ship internationaly. I have them on my other bike.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Honda-XR-50-...94fd2d&vxp=mtr.

They are cheap copies of IMS foot pegs.

I have them too, got them for around 15 Euros, shipped from Hong Kong, I think... can't be beaten for the price, still doing fine after 2 years...

EDIT: http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_tr...+650+&_sacat=0

They're a bit more expensive, now... but still worth it I think...
