I'm interested in a pair of non-perforated side pipe heatshields for a MK4 build I'm starting in July. They will go over 4" GASN pipes. Any suggestions for a vendor? (I've seen suggestions for Drummermike, but I can't find a website.)
Thanks,
Reed Johnson

This is just my opinion on what I have learned from years on a Harley heat shields are useless all you do is move the point of contact out closer, the heat shield is just a little bit cooler than the pipe it will still blister you even through a good pair socks and jeans. Mine went in the trash years ago.

I would disagree w/ Mike. I am able to lay my bare hand on my heat shields after a long drive and they are just warm. I got a pair of polished ones from drummermike and they work/look great. .

98,500 miles in and Drummer Mike is still protecting us. To each his own.

I cant recall which heat shields I have, they are ceramic coated and I can put my hand on them after running. I put them on AFTER my wife really burned her leg bad. I dont love the look, but they do work.

Edit: I have Cobra Stuff heat shields that I had ceramic coated black

i have the perforated ones they arent hot after a long run either , need them so as to not get a case of snake bite from the pipes. you know how to find cobra owners in the crowd look for the round burn scars on the bottom of their legs lol

Yep, Mike's heat shields help a lot.
Get them polished from Mike if you can. I got unpolished heat shields a while ago, and it was really difficult to find someone to polish them.
