Clarification on Ceramic Coated Headers Service

Have your headers become discolored? Are they a little blue? Are you looking to give your bike a sleeker look? British Customs offers a Ceramic Coated Header Service for your Triumph Motorcycle. Lasting 14 times longer than chrome, this durable protective matte black finish will cover up any existing discoloration and prevent new discoloration and rust. Coating additionally reduces surface temperature by up to 25 percent.

Note that a new pair of header crush gaskets are required for installation of newly coated head pipes. Header crush gaskets are available for purchase for $9.95 each. These gaskets are not reusable.

There are two options when ordering:

One. Send in your headers. Once we receive your headers, we will coat them and return them back to you within two weeks. Actual time from when you send in your headers and receive them back will vary based on shipping time. The coating process is finished within two weeks of our receipt. Buyer is responsible for all shipping costs.

Two. If you’re unable to be without your headers for a long period of time because you use your Triumph frequently, we do offer a core exchange service. Once we receive your order, we send pre-coated headers (that we have here at the shop) to you immediately. There is a refundable core exchange fee of $550. You must send us your headers to receive the refund. Once we receive and inspect your undamaged headers, we will refund this fee to you. Damage does not include discoloration as discoloration is expected. Headers must be received with no dents or scratches. This service availability is dependent on our core stock. Buyer is responsible for all shipping costs.
