    Hey guys, anybody ever seen a guard that goes on the pipe just behind the right rearset. For some reason this spot rubs against my A star boots and melts the plastic.

    Need to get either a guard or just pipe wrap. Anybody have the same issues and put pipe wrap on.

    its a akrapovic pipe btw. Not that that makes any difference, just cant remember if the stock pipe had a guard here or not. I could hunt one down if there was one that came stock.

    I have vortex rearsets and I was able to put the stock guard on over the pipe

    I'm running exhaust wrap for that section of the mid pipe with my Leo Vince pipe. I know Leo Vince sells a carbon heat shield too, but the wrap is cheaper and works fine.

    thanks guys, just ended up wrapping it last night. Think it turned out just fine. I have woodcraft rears so I dont know if the guard would fit or not. Just from looking it does not seem like it would. I could not find it with all the stock stuff anyway so the wrap will have to do.
