I keep getting rubber/leather burns on my pipes just on the curve. Found this Link Any one know a UK supplier who does this sort of thing? - I need 2. Not sure what import tax would be but would prefer to buy UK.

I have just been looking at my stock exhaust thats hanging up in the workshop and remembered this thread. as the pipes probably follow the exact same line as the stockers, you could have tried the stock front heat shields as they are only jubilee clipped on.
If they did follow the exact same line I reckon it may have looked ok if they woud have fittted. I know your pipes are bigger at the top than stockers but I thought I would post it anyway as it had crossed my mind.

Just what I thought when I first encountered the problem so I went and took one shield off the stockers and tried it on the new pipe. Unfortunately the problem area is right on the bend and the original would have to be bent in a good pipe bender to work. I decided to get the new one not to mess up the original. There seem to be a lot of straight shields for sale everywhere but this is the only curved one I have seen. Should be with me by the end of the month - I just hope the profile is the same as the pipe when I get it !

Thanks for the suggestion, anyway.Curved heat shields for Highway Hawk short cut exhaust's 184121345

Blues I have just been looking at the curved heat shields you have ordered and I can't get my head around why you are needing heat shields for under the exhaust curve for leather and rubber burns?

PS. Those pipes look nicer everytime I look at them, they are really growing on me

I probably did not explain the location very well.....I melt leather/plastic trousers on the top outer curve as on pic below. The convex heat shield ordered should cover that spot as long as the diameter of the curve roughly matches the pipe's profile. I also get boot heel marks on the lower pipe adjacent to the footboard but that is not nearly so bad and anyway is a sideways curve. I have rubbed off the top mark so many times the chrome has dulled so I am hoping the heat shield will give it a new lease of life. If not, I may have to reinstall my modified stockers for the winter and return to the Short Cuts next season.

PS The other alternative of course will be to wrap the pipes but maybe that's a bit too dragpipe for the C800!

To tell you the truth I had to go out to the garage and have a look because I could not remember where the mark was myself without staring right at it even though I clean it off every other day!!Curved heat shields for Highway Hawk short cut exhaust's 636111

Just to add more to Blue's pic I have added where I am getting 'boot melt'. The fix for me is to move my foot away from pipe but the long term fix will be to get rid of the plates and get pegs but a little more forward

Yep I was out today too in the sunny . But the boys are starting to put their bikes away - not so many parked up on the sea front as last week. Me.......winterisation.......not likely! Billy Connelly says there is no such thing as bad weather - only inappropriate clothing - how true!

Arrived today earlier than expected from Hong Kong (and with a free pen!)- no extra to pay. Curve is slightly tighter than the pipes but this is good cos it sits a bit proud in the middle and hence more air underneath to keep cooler. The clips were a tight fit. Could not get the lower one to do up - may buy a longer one but it looks fine and is very secure so I may leave as it is. Went for a ride - perfect! Rubbed my leathers on the shield several times when putting feet down but no marks at all. I may get something for the boot bit although that is not so much of a problem as a straight one will probably do. Now I am ready for the cold winter and I can wear my padded meltable suit (not to mention heated gloves!)
