Default Good deal...

That's a killer deal... $19.95 for a billet head! The snap-on plastic head protector is just a bonus.

100 zip ties for $3!!! Where are u buying them, so i can change sources. I pay like $8-14 per 100 depending on the size (they're colored but that cant account for the diff). And the smaller ones cost more than the big ones. I WANT $3/100 ZIP TIES TOO!!!!

They sell them here at a local store, Pamida is the name, and they are colored, they are kinda on the large side but work quite well on my Nova head!! The store only has them about every other month, and normaly there is only one bag on the shelf, so I think they stock em just for me LOL.

Well on some MTs the head sticks up out of the body to help keep it cool and for good looks.

When you flip your head might hit something and crack or break off a part of your head. My friends savage we where running down the road tried to turn and it flipped over and when I got down there it was broke off. So then we put on a .25 and put the zipties on it so that dont happen again.
