I realize this may be a bit of a late response, but I *just* installed an Akrapovic on my CBR, and despite the link pipe being titanium, it still gets ******* hot. Enough to burn your leg if you don't put the heat shield on it. Though I could poke it with my finger at full temp and it wouldn't burn instantly, so definitely cooler than the stock.

The actual exhaust head itself is a *lot* cooler and you can definitely remove the heat shield under the rear cowl. Even if you have a passenger it wont be too hot. I can touch it and keep my fingers on it at full temp. The carbon fibre part you can't even tell if it heats up.

So did you end up removing the lower heat shield? Are you going to keep it off?

I took the heat shield off under the tail cowl, it isn't needed. I left the heat shield on the link pipe though, because that could definitely burn your leg still if you aren't careful.

OEM Heat Shields

I've experienced no problems whatsoever since removing both the upper and lower heat shields.

I don't run a heatshield at all, same with leg guard, I removed both at the same time I changed my slip-on. My leg doesn't burn at all and niether do my jeans or boots. It's hot to the touch yeah, but not enough to cause an issue imho.

Had no problems what so ever with plastics etc. I run a Carbon fibre Two Brothers :)

Seems like it's 50/50 regarding leaving the lower heatshield that covers the link pipe and removing it.

Cause i'm in the EU - This was minutes after install so I wanted to know how loud it was with the baffle in, wasn't loud enough so I took it out but didn't get another video of it!

It's out now and has been for a good 600 miles or so, still not sure if it's loud enough though :)

It will get hot, it's a Titanium s bend tube practically right next to the engine, all the heat from the headers filters through the pipes into that s bend tube before leaving the exhaust.

Your muffler will get hot too, it's aliminum not Carbon Fibre. Carbon is much more effecient at dissipating heat than aliminum.

I took my heatshield off when I put my akra on but also modified the lower shield behind the rearset. I cut it right above the bolt. I also wrapped the the midpipe. Click image for larger version

I would leave it off, plenty of riders don't have it on and also run Ti or Ali end cans. If you feel uneasy keep it there, if you trust us, take it off.

Ultimately, it's your bike and therefore your choice!
