Slip on mid pipe heat shield
« on: May 05, 2017, 02:08:38 am »
So, my mid pipe has that black gunk burn on it - again.  Cleaned it off after my riding pants were the cause last summer.  Last Friday, wore wind pants to go to the local gas station to fuel up for an early morning saturday start.  Black gunk - burned those too. 

Bought the 7" emgo?  engo? off ebay.  20 some dollars shipped.  Originally got the 4" as others have mentioned but changed to the 7".  The 7" fits perfectly on my delkevic mid pipe.  One clamp within the bracket for the center stand rubber stopper, the other wherever it landed.  One end just overlaps the bend in the pipe and the other extends to just about the rider's peg. 

All the slight burn scuffs and the major gunk are covered (of course removed it).  Looks good.  No idea how it will hold up over time.  Still will be cognizant of not laying my pant leg there.  But thought I'd post cause I should have done it a while ago and maybe others are thinking the same. 

BTW - didn't over crank the clamps and still no rattles at all.

I also have a Delk pipe and on my mid pipe I used the guard off my stock pipe. Just ground off the welds and used clamps to hold it in place. Has been there for over a year now and has not moved. Looks like it was meant to be there.
This is what mine looks like. Not fancy but free.

NYBiomed, while looking at your heat shield (6"), (at the bottom of your add) I saw this one (9" / black or chrome).

https://www.amazon.com/Frenshion-Motorcycle-Exhaust-Protector-Kawasaki/dp/B06Y5PZV3C/ref=pd_sbs_263_4?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B06Y5PZV3C&pd_rd_r=PRXNAYF7JRS7G4PMES71&pd_rd_w=2woIv&pd_rd_wg=81Xd1&psc=1&refRID=PRXNAYF7JRS7G4PMES71

Thinking the longer shield will be best to protect my gear, "I ordered 1".

Thank you
Ride safe, Ted

Lol, I had actually ordered a 9" one too- from an Amazon vendor that does presently not have it available. I guess I just linked the first one I saw was in stock. It does its job, but I would probably like it more if it was anodized aluminum, but its cheap and effective the way it is.

Sorry about the no pic guys!   Yes, the eBay link above is the one.  Like stated above, just got tired of burning hole in my pants.  Great line deltonian!  So one ride, a few hundred miles, and no story is the story.  I guess if I don't burn any pants over the next year and it still looks ok, I'll call it $23 well spent.

Just ordered this in chrome as I bunt my Marmot rain pants again today getting gas and let my leg flop to the side.  :-[

Just to update; The bend in the one I ordered ^^^^ was not close to the Delkevic mid pipe and, the quality was horrible. Although I figure you get what you pay for so I wasnt expecting much... Maybe Ill fabricate something down the road and until then just be more careful.

Mine came in yesterday and already installed. Fit fine.
Would be better if it was anodized instead of painted, but should do the trick.

I need to get one of these!  Question, what do you all use to remove the black marks from the pipe?

I made some clamps that I use to hold the stock heat shield on my Delkevic mid-pipe.
