    Exhaust Headers

    After 6 years and 45000 hard miles the exhaust headers on my 2016 XRT have cracked badly.  A replacement set from Triumph are pretty spendy so I am considering going aftermarket.  So far, the only ones I can find are from Lextek.  Does anyone know of any alternatives? I'm in the UK.

    Does anyone here have experience of the Lextek headers?  What is the quality like?  How does the bike perform with them? They are a de-cat system and do away with the Lambda sensor - will this throw up any fault codes or running issues?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Hi DarkStar, you are not the first. Use the search tool, enter Lextek and select "most recent topics first". You should get several posts back on that.

    Thanks.  I did that.  Seven posts come up but none of them answer the questions I am asking.

    I looked at them as seen a few UK posts elsewhere giving good feedback, however Lextek couldn't supply for a couple of months and as I was due to set off on a tour I had no option.
    My dealer gave me a reasonable discount so didn't pay the full World of Triumph price.. always worth asking if they can get you a discount.

    Thanks Georgio.

    I've been in touch with Lextek now and they clarified that the headers do have provision for the Lambda sensor (my main concern), and they have them in stock, so I have placed an order. Fingers crossed!
