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

I am working on a home grown solution. I made a heat guard for the front part of the pipe (see attached), and am doing the same for the rear part.

Here you go T_I_G_E_R, the zip tie holds up well and doesn't look bad IMO.[attachment=0:20227prw]2.JPG[/attachment:20227prw][attachment=1:20227prw]1.JPG[/attachment:20227prw]

The zip tie thing definitely works well for a temporary measure. At least you can cut it if you needed to remove it. Personally I riveted them together. A bit more of a permanent fix. Works great and looks good too. Over a year now with no problems.

Here you go tiger. Another option i was considering was using a small bolt and nut so you could undo it if needed.

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

Here's my home grown solution to this little problem. The material is 5/64 inch aluminim alloy. The primary attachment point is the screw for the rear bodywork, with a length of safety wire from a hole at the bottom of the guard to the loop on the midpipe, and a high temp zip tie around the frame with a short length of electrical insulation to protect the frame from stratches. The lightning/cooling holes are 1/4 inch in a 3/8 inch grid. The guard is bent at the bottom to follow the curvature of the midpipe, and also from rear to front. Wasn't hard, but I burned the daylights out of my thumb holding the alloy with a welding glove while heat working it.

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

Guys:

I am waiting on my suspension so now is a good time for me to wrap things up in terms of getting my bike ready for my first outing. Where can I buy the frame guards? My bike is a 2011 FE 570 S. is it just a dealer item? Am I to gather that the exhaust in close proximity to the frame heats the frame up to a point where it will melt boots/pant legs?

Thanks for your help in advance!

Kirk
