I had an idea today....I thought I remembered reading somewhere that the header on the XR650 is stainless, even though its painted. So I did some research online, and sure enough it is stainless.

I think the black paint looks like crap. Would it be OK to strip the paint off the stock header? Since its stainless, I wouldn't think it would hurt anything.

Anybody try this before?

The XR400's header doesn't have paint on it. I don't see why it would hurt anything by striping the paint off of the 650r's. I can't see whare the paint would help in cooling or something like that, I might do it to my 650r, it sure would look better.
