Arrived on schedule. Easy to mount. Will see how effective/durable it is today.


An excellent product & a reputable company. I installed the shield over my rear exhaust pipe on my FXS, shotgun style system, to shield the oil tank close by. The exhaust pipes themselves were wrapped in Thermo-tec's pipe wrap. Along with their Heat Sleeves over the chrome oil lines, that I modified by slitting lengthwise & coating with hi-temp silicone to seal the fibers, the oil tank now operates at a 'High-Normal' temp. instead of broiling hot. I also run an oil cooler with a thermal valve, which is what all HD's should've had in the 1st place-as in; 'from the factory'. The bike likes the changes, the plugs run clean. Mileage, even with a Vance & Hines Fuelpak, is good. The newer engines may run hot, but, in the end, 'Heat Destroys' & will cost you. Keep 'er cool-( As you can!)- your bike will last longer!


5 Star


Skinny rivet heads holding the mounting brackets pull through both layers of shield fabric.Inevitable casual boot contact quickly abrades both layers of fabric.Bad product.


This is just what I needed to curb the heat coming from my new Cobra exhaust. The heat was starting to melt my side cover and this heat shield works great. I used stainless steel cinch straps (zip ties) instead of the hose clamps that come with it...looks much better.
