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.





Ok this looked so good I just popped off my exhaust. I am going to leave the cat in and get it jet coated. For those inmates thinking of this, its very easy to remove the exhaust. I had a 13mm small 1/4 socket with a universal joint. That seems to have made a lot of difference. Also remember if you cannot fit the torx in, some also have regular heads. The bracket near the footpeg came off with a 10mm wrench. Wonder how much the coating costs.....

Most of you are saying the heat is coming predominately from the left side. On my R, it seems to come mostly from the right side, i.e. CAT. I have a Black Dog skid plate, maybe that's the difference.

The BDCW heat shields will be available soon, so I'll give those a try with the KTM plate before swapping that out for the BDCW plate. Trial and error...mostly error.
I have heat through the seat, and heat on both sides. While sometimes uncomfortable in hot weather, it was never a huge deal for me. Now I can't ride today because my pipes are at the coaters!!! That is a problem I blame mcguyver for.

Anyone have a set for sale, or know where I can get a set in a hurry?
Looks like they are on vacation for a week, and I've got a trip down the gulf coast planned to start in 5 days..

Wings set the bar pretty high for this piece. It looks great just hoping it doesn't cook cpu etc.. under there.
Maybe some small snorkles to funnel more air under seat area to push heat out not trap it so much. Question is where to put them.
