I like the look of the heat sheilds. Not sure why people do not typically put them on? Seems practical too with kids riding like i will have.

Got some from cobrastuff.com. Different look that Mike's, just depends on what style you're after. Mine stay cool enough to touch even after the exhaust gets hot.

If you have kids, just watch out around where the quad exits the body. You wouldn't touch it getting out of the car, but if they're wandering around it's a lot hotter there than anywhere else. My quad where it exits the body tends to measure around 350-400F after a 30 min drive (I have cats), whereas the tip of the exhaust is typically around 110F or so.

If you get Drummer Mike's shields, i recommend getting the polished version. It is a lot of work to polish them with my Harbor Freight polisher.

The other day after getting just a little snake bite, (Man that hurt!) I figured I'd better install heat shields. With many good reviews and recommendations I decided to order Drummer Mike's shields. I took Drummer Mike's advice and ordered the polished version, they should be arriving today (Friday)

He asked me to post pictures once I have them installed, I'll be happy to comply.

These are 3 years old on a daily driver. The polishing is outstanding.



Extra note. I lined the inside of the shields with ThermoTec heat barrier. Just some extra leg insurance.

Hello Kevin,

Oh good idea, I have some leftover Pyrogel XT E silica aerogel thermal insulation from when I built the foot box stainless heat shields, the stuff is a fantastic heat insulator.

Your shields still look new

Thanks for the suggestion.

Does Drummer Mike have a website or contact him throught the forum. When I searched, I didn't get anything to pop up. I am sure it is user error.

I recommend getting the polished version as well! :smile2: I didn't know about that option, and I had a terrible time finding someone to polish mine, and it wasn't cheap!

Anyone have an opinion on the finishline heat shields?
They look and work great. I like the perforated look to break up the continuous side exhaust a bit. If Drummer Mike had a perforated version I would have used him, however he did not, and I wanted that look. Quality is very good on the Finishline shields I viewed.

Heatshields

cobrastuff.com has great ones. I drove from Georgia to Detroit and I could touch them with my hand and not get burned.

It looks like finishline buys them from Him. Same pictures just more expensive.

One more vote for Drummer Mike. He is easy to deal with, shipped the product with no issues with in delivery and the shields look great and work. My kids are so happy not getting burned anymore.
