That's weird, it mounted with no problems on my R (with OEM crashbars of course).

I would question the proper installation of the bars

Still feel it but nowhere near as much as before. Not scientific I know but it does make a difference.
Cheaper than the wings guards things which Im not sure are a good idea anyway. Plus I think the black pipe looks cool.





I really like this and would be interested if while doing I could cut that dam cat out....hmmmm

I posted this in another thread also, has anyone tried header wrap on the rear header to reduce the heat?

Installed these Heat shields...they work great. No more issues with the heat.
Shipping was super fast & Wings quality is top notch.
Will definately buy from Wings again!

Ok, found the instructions, installed the whole assembly and went on a 20 mile test ride. Way better than before, but I can still feel some warmth on my legs. All in all, worth the $300. They look pretty great too.

Hottest ride of my life leaving the Ducati factory in Italy. 36 degrees C (approx 96 F). The Wings were a god send, tho' in those temps, you still will feel the hot air, but nowhere near like it was pre Wings.

Was looking at a friends '13 BMW r1200 gs last weekend and noticed they have some "heat shields" stock.

That must be where the extra 150lbs comes from.

haven't tried it yet, but it's pretty certain to work. If you look at the 2015 spy shots ktm is doing something similiar with insulation. given how good the ceramic coating works, and it looks good and protects the parts -- seems like a better first step. You could always add header wrap later, or maybe ktm will offer a part in 2015. Reducing the heat output seems much better to me than redirecting heat.

And heat is actually a problem for the 1200GS LC too:
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=986062

(this is not to start a KTM vs GS thing. It just seems that as these bikes get pushed into superbike performance territory, and together with emission restrictions, heat will probably be here to stay).
