Thanks Qwik! That is correct about the corroding and brittleness. Not good. Pipe wrap 'helps' but the heat is still greater coming off the pipe area onto your boot versus having this heat shield. If I wanted to get really crazy, I could even glue heat reflective tape to the backside, but I think that's just over kill. The guards are safe to touch w/your hand for a couple seconds even after a long ride. Thanks for the questions too, you guys.
