So, my bike is actually done, and I can ride now (thank you everyone for the tips. It was the tssm placement) I also got new pipes on them which are toxic mystro pipes
I love the way they look and sound (I am aware of the loss of HP)

However... I realized that the exhaust is starting to melt my Right side boot. The melted rubber from my boot actually got on my Exhaust wrap!!!(Pic 1)

If anybody that has had this exhaust can they give me some recommendations to prevent this from happening? (other than taking off the exhaust lol)

I'm thinking of getting some mini floorboards or an extended rear brake pedal
Can anybody in this forum send me some recommendations of some low profile ones?

Any input on this would be deeply appreciated. As I am sure I am not the only one who has ever faced this problem

Add a spacer which moves the right side peg 1 inch outwards. If it doesn`t help I would fab a heat shield.

I've had a similar issue years ago with an evo so i just put double heat wraps. But i warn you about heat wraps they will rust pretty much anything under

Another route worth investigation: ceramic coating.
Had it done on my dx back in time, stands the test of time and makes a noticeable difference.
