Yea I have even put some heat wrap on the exhaust and it still get's too hot. Someone suggested riviting in a piece of sheet metal to disapate the heat. I can't see how that would work, but I'm up for anything.jonesti said:So I finally got around to getting my bike track prepped and put on the HotBodies plastic. Fit and finish wasn't to bad.......till I did a test ride. The freakin' lower sits on the exhaust. I got back to the garage and noticed this wonderful smell and smoke. Yeppeee! So I had to cut out a 3X10 rectangle so I won't look like Edwards testing the Aprilla last year(fire, fire)! Now I gotta see if CMRA will allow this since my bellypan will only hold about 2qts. of oil. Either that or I have to fab up a box around it in fibreglass. We get what we pay for!!
I like that one, I'm going to try that. Thanks GP.GPgofast said:another trick is to drill a small hole where the bodywork is rubbing and install a nut and bolt through the hole. The bolt then sits against whatever is hot and there is an air space in between the bodywork and exhaust.
YOu guys coming up to putnam on the 2 and 3 of april?edlaw13 said:hotbodies is designed for race exhaust, stock exhaust will burn through. use fasteners on the lower where it connects to the upper. dont attach the rear of the lower to the bike and you wont have any problems. i do use heat tape just in case and it works great. dont worry, the lower will hold fine without being attached to the bike. mine held up fine at daytona.
