You need a leather heat shield added to your inner calf area. I had Inmate Akarob sew some on a pair of all weather riding pants, around 10,000 miles later no burn marks yet!

Or... Use the clamps that connect the FMF shield to bolt up the OE heat shield to the FMF header.

I made a guard from perforated stainless steel , that goes from the front of my Powerbomb almost back to the frame. A spacer and one hose clamp around the Powerbomb.

THis is getting serious consideration. I like the factory look.

Thanks!

Ah, But that's a secret process.

Here's how you do it: First material is a stainless steel door kick plate ( goes at the bottom of the door ) . Got it at a Home Depot. I finished the parts with a 80 grit buff wheel to a uniform finish ( all the sanding marks going the same direction). Then clean the parts 100% grease/oil/fingerprint free with acetone. Then I placed them in my outside gas grill down on the stones that are just above the burner. Cook about 6 to 12 hours.

I made a little shield further back on the pipe but it is just for looks.

Somebody got a ticket for wheelie-ing a few pages back. Saw this on another forum:



I've been pulled over for wheelies more times than I care to count. Sometimes (rarely), they give me a warning and chew me out and send me on my way. Sometimes, they threaten me with all they could do (jail time, impound my bike, misdemeanor, blablabla), then they go 'easy' on me and give me speeding or unsafe lane changing, then they tell me what a nice wheelie it was. Then there are the supercops, that throw the book atcha. With lots of research, I beat my exhibition of speed ticket for doing a smooth and controlled wheelie at a constant speed on the freeway at night. I endangered no one. Bottom Line: There is nowhere in the California Vehicle Code that says lifting your front wheel is illegal. A wheelie done safely is not illegal. Too bad most cops THINK it is illegal and most people that get these bogus tickets aren't willing to fight it to the end.


I really wish cops around here would ticket all the dumb asses texting (women 80% of the time FWIW). I'm getting sick of people that drive with their head down. I'd take somebody at .08-.10 over testers anyway. Fight the ticket!
