I know that heat has been an issue with some of you with shorter legs. I got and tried the newest addition to the heat shields from Nick today. It greatly reduces heat that is radiated toward your leg from the header pipe itself. I know they have them in chrome and I assume they have them in black as well. The shield is $75 plus shipping and it does not only offer a good look on the chrome but is very functional as well.

Oops :hidesbeh:

MAX- Thank you for checking :) I know Rob was toying with the idea of getting a high temp tape to put on the pipe, and then sticking the existing heat shield back on the pipe...

True...I remember that Rich and Rob have been diligently working together exchanging ideas to make that heat issue managable :)

Yep and now they figured out the perfect bike this weekend would have the turbo, slipper clutch, and that shifter that Rob has. ;)

Rob there is currently no shield at all in this area right now. This is the shield on the header pipe below the tail pipe.

Oh, I see now. I thought it was the original heat shield they were replacing due to heat concerns...

I saw the new location of the additional heat shield...trust me I know there wasn't one there previously. Remember, I'm part of the short legged folk :rofl:

I believe your original heat shield has something between the actual shield and the pipe...asbestos maybe? I was wondering if this new heat shield was like yours or like the new "extended" heat shield that Nick came up with.

No the new one is just an extended air gap like your top shield is.
