Hi guys I'm new here and I just bought a cbr600rr 2016 and I'm about to install the Akrapovic slip-on.
I'm wondering if I need to keep the heat shield under the tail?

Given normal running conditions the can won't get hot enough to melt anything. Haven't had an Akro but have had a half dozen other brands and it's never been an issue.

You should be fine. I ditched mine but I did throw some aluminum faced heat shield tape in its place. I got some gloss black enamel high heat paint and painted the silver tape and couldn't be happier.
