Maybe someone should ask them if they could. I know they responded that they could make a exhaust heat shield to fit a megabomb header for a berg if someone sent one in.

Buy the frame protector set, apply self adhesive heat shield material to the inside of the right side of the protector, and youre all set

Re: Heat shield...not the header one...the heel one

I had the same issue with a Giant Loop product. I attached something non-melting around the frame, in my case it was an oval steel hose clamp, then connected the nylon to it on the outside of the frame. I could see the whole thing melting away very easily otherwise. Doesn't work the way you've got it in the pic. It will melt away.....

I was melting my 300$ pants on the pipe. And my boots.. and anything else I wore. Until I installed the plastic frame protector with heat shield backing. Now its perfect.

I agree that the frame protector is a must and I installed it as well, but it does nothing for this problem. A nylon strap behind the frame isn't protected by it at all, hence the need for something that can take the heat.

Re: Heat shield...not the header one...the heel one

I'm thinking that a flat piece of aluminum, shaped properly, could be bolted on via forward subframe bolt just above the rear brake reservoir. Somebody tell me why not.

Can't figure how black slotted one in the photos here is mounted.

Even wrapped, my pipe still burns my pants/boots. I guess I'll give those frame guards a shot, good idea to cover the backside.

When you put the frame guards on drill a hole and zip tye the exhaust guard part of the guard to the side panel so that way the heel of your boot does not push the guard into the exhaust pipe, I did this and I have had these guards on for about a year now and have had no problems with the plastic melting.

I put the tab of the guard on top of the side panel. Seems to do the trick.
