Exhaust heatshield

I have a Hitchcocks silencer on my EFI - which is great, but without the heatshield of the old one I have melted my overtrousers! Has anyone fitted the Hitchcocks heatshield? Would it solve my problem or are there other solutions (other than not wearing overtrousers)? Thanks, Rich

Gore-tex overtrousers won't melt on an exhaust. Same stuff as on your non-stick frying pan.

Army surplus ones are cheap as chips. If you don't like the cammo pattern, the RAF issue blue ones.

SCALY might know of a spare pair for you ???

One of the few occasions where pipe wrap actually comes in handy. My other half kept burning her over-trousers on her Virago rear down pipe. After being wrapped copiously in the stuff the offending down pipe now only gets is warm to the touch.

I have the heat shield fitted, mainly to cover the joint when I changed the silencer. It still gets hot enough to melt your trousers. I have stuck a patch of Gortex to all my over trousers where they are likely to catch the exhaust, works a treat!

As always thanks for all the advice - and for helping me believe its not just me that has these things happen!

Hi Rich, I fitted the Hitchcocks silencer on my C5 together with the heatshield. It does the trick and would recommend. Regards Dean
