New member and looking to buy 08 header pipes!

Hey guys,
Just bought a 08 Versys but I need a header pipe to get it street worthy. Anybody have one laying around or know of a good place to get one?
Looking forward to seeing you fine folks around the forums!
Thanks!

Welcome to the site!

E-Bay can be you friend. Check to see if a Ninja 650 header pipe will work, same basic motor, If so it'll be a lot easier to find one.

Or was that look THEN leap?

Yeah unfortunately I was too late and he had already sold it :[ thanks for the suggestion though!

Do you guys know if there are any drawbacks to using a Ninja header as opposed to the stock one with the connector pipe?

IF I remember correctly - the "balance" pipe brings the torque down lower in the revs, so a Ninja pipe will make a SLIGHT difference.
