Have any of you guys with aftermarket pipes (cobra I guess) managed to burn your calves yet. :cus:

I do like the shields on the stock system.

Cobra Drags are smaller Circumference and are a lot further away from legs...The new ones are also double walled, and believe it or not, Ive bumped em and the are hot but didn't fry the skin off like other... :D

Skin on Pipe is brutal. :eek: With pants on , if you just left it on the pipe for a few seconds, youd feel the heat, and it would be noticeable, but You should always wear pants to protect yourself. And there is no Dumb question, You might get bashed occasionally, but just ignore them.

Ditto. I have several scars on my leg from pipes burning me. The stock shields seem to work well. The replacements might work as long as there is a shield on the pipes.
