And how does yours "look better"? You can't even see it from outside the bike!
i'd say at $89 the mark up aint so bad and the time saved cutting more than makes up for it!

Letís be honest, this didnít cost you $60 in material. It is all about panelization. You use small pieces which allows you to use most of the material without waste. Here is what I did to my seat and cost me $10 +1hr of labor. If I transferred it to my laser cutter and spent few hours to CAD it, I could have done way better job. There is nothing wrong to mark up what you think is worth your labor and material and make money. But just to claim that material itself is that is not cool.

I think the heat comes from the exhaust

I tried ice cool in the fluid years ago

Made no difference

Don't waste your money

Yes, heat is definitely coming from exhaust! I did not notice any heat increase at all after I removed rear header heat shields. Perhaps a bit better cooling of the cylinder head and rear header due to improved air circulationÖ.

Sweet! Where did you find your material?

My first batch was from Amazon. But then found it cheaper on https://m.summitracing.com/parts/the...iABEgI30vD_BwE

Got another one to try to wrap under the exhaust heat shield

I would argue this.

Engine temps dictate how hot deez nuts get.

A better heat shield does help with exhaust heat so I'm not saying its not all exhaust.

On 300 mile rides the only time I have ever had a heat problem was in slower traffic when the engine gets over 200F, the second that engine is down to 195 its only hot not toast your sacks off hot.


For me I wrapped my exhaust and used the new heat shield on the 1199 instead of the old terni skinny cf shield that was worthless. That alone tamed the exhaust and isolated heat to just the engine temp.

Best mod you can do for butt heat is a bigger radiator.


Again at track speeds old style skinny shield no wrap, and I could feel heat on a 100f day and deez nuts were getting way to hot.

Now with new style termi exhaust shield, and wrapped, I'm good. It never gets hot at track speed.

Stop and go on a 100f day is tolerable, UNLESS you get caught in traffic at 35mph for 30 minutes and the engine gets over 200F, then forget it.
