Anyone selling an exhaust heat shield?

Recommended Posts

Codexon

Hello all, I'm new to the forums but have had my FZ-07 for over a year now. The previous owner drilled holes in the exhaust and didn't have the stock heat shield anymore. I like the sound because it has a low growl and is not too loud, but it doesn't look great without a cover. Do any of you have your stock heat shield if you've switched to an aftermarket exhaust that you'd be willing to sell? I can't find anything online except one over 100 dollars which is much more than I'm looking to spend.

WTF would anyone do that?

 

Welcome to the Forum, I am sure someone would have a spare or ebay may be a good source

Many people have actually drilled their exhausts to get better sound, sure aftermarket exhausts look better but its cheap and in my opinion a great sound that's not too loud. I've looked online and couldn't find any so I figured this might be my best bet.

They do it so the bike sounds louder.  A free mod for those on a budget and hate the stock quiet exhaust.

It doesn't matter what you call it, if the bike is louder, mission accomplished.

Yes drilling holes in the exhaust is mainly for sound, but many who have previously done it reported the bike running cooler as well with no negative downsides. Personally I don't think I could get a better sound out of the bike than the way it is now. It has good tone but is not so loud that I'd feel like a dick for getting on the throttle. I have had experiences with aftermarket exhausts on my previous bikes that are way too loud making you have to short shift your bike or keep the rpms super low to not blow peoples ear drums out. Sound differs quite a bit depending on the size of holes and how many holes you drill etc, but right now it's the perfect sound and sound level for me. I have gotten several compliments and questions about what exhaust I have and when I tell them its just a modified stock exhaust they are astounded. As far as performance, I don't believe it has reduced performance at all, if any it improved. I had it dyno'd a couple months ago and was mid 70's for horsepower. Sure, stock exhaust isn't pretty by any means but I don't want to spend 400+ on something for cosmetics and something way too loud for my tastes. Aftermarket exhausts don't do a whole lot for performance in the first place anyway. Now I just want to make the stock exhaust look a little cleaner.

Just one side.  Didn't want to be obnoxious.  I put em on the front.  I can hear it better there and there's too much stuff in the way on the back.
