I bought this before xmas...it was advertised as a brand new factory b pipe headpipe. Still has the sticker on it and doesn't show any signs of use but it is not 0 perfect like I would expect a new headpipe to be. Its got some weird black marks on the powder coat, not sure if this is a flaw or what but it does not clean off. Also by the time I got it the bottom water fitting had broke off in shipping, so it has been replaced with a new one, and the top one has been swapped out for a straight fitting to help run the waterlines better. I just anti seized all the screws so they are in perfect working order. Head pipe is ready to rock, just wanted to give a full description of the item so there are no misunderstandings as it is new not used but may not totally appear that way.
