ceramic coated barker header

I know tim doesnt want to hear this but the ceramic coating on my header is peeling off. Only from where it bolts up to the head to the first bend. It looks like someones skin who has been laying out in the sun too long,starting to wrinkle and flaking off. It looks like the ceramic didnt bond too well to the header there. that is probaly the hottest place right there. I am going to call and see what i can do about it. This is my first ceramic coated header,i thought it would last a little longer than a month. The header may of had some contaminents on it to make it not stick,i dont know.

Check with Eric because mine is also ceramic coated for over a year and haven't seen any peeling or discoloration on it.

I'd check with Tim rather than Eric, because EHS would just have to pass the info to Tim anyway.

Tim read my post on the heat shield and shows me that he's willing to fix what I think is a problem... even if it's only me that thinks it's a problem. That tells me that Tim is a good person to deal with. It's in how a company responds to customer feedback that makes them a good company or not. No product, right outta the box is going to be perfect. A company that's willing to listen to feedback and improve their product is a company that I'd want to deal with rather than one that just sells you a product and ignores you. JMO

I second that he is awsome, He drove 1000 miles to come fit the exhaust on my bike a few days before we went to Parker. He got in about 10 am and rolled out at 8 that night. Thanks again Tim

Well i sent my header back to Barkers to have the ceramic redone,i put the stock exhaust back on and wow seemed like i was on my 400ex,not quite that bad but what a difference that full exhaust makes. With the barker it pulls alot harder and longer and more over rev compared to the stock corked up exhaust.This is no exxageration i am for real.
