Default Re: Greetings from 8000 ft.!

For my leg protector I used the heat shield from the kit exhaust pipe.
I bent the shield to conform to the shape of the front half of the expansion chamber and used a length of 1/4" aluminum rod bent to conform to the back half of the ex- chamb. and bolted it on to the heat shield using a large washer in back and the holes already drilled in the shield. I used a section of exhaust pipe silicone tubing supplied in the kit, squished in-between as a spacer and one hose clamp near the front to hold the protector to the pipe. I put a bolt in the other pre-drilled hole in the shield to prevent the hose clamp from slipping down the shield as I tightened it to the exhaust pipe. It works great! I comfortably ride in shorts and touch my bare leg to the pipe all the time and I never get burned the protector gets just slightly warm even on long rides.
