I have an 07 ZX-10r with twin Akropovic exhaust and the GF is feeling too much heat on her feet, i checked the Akropovic website and didn't see any shields for this any ideas ? (I just bought the bike so not sure of the model of the exhaust they are carbon fiber covers or is that what is suppose to act as a shield?).

The carbon fiber exhaust there isn't a heat shield. The canister is made out of carbon fiber. It will run cooler than any metal canister, but it isn't a heat shield. The OEM heat shield for the exhaust is just above the rear brake MC on the right side. That's to protect your legs though.

There's no sort of heat shielding that can be applied to that area. Hopefully you've told your GF that she shouldn't wear flip-flops on a bike and that over-the-ankle riding boots will be the best protection from the heat. :wink:

That's the BEST slip-on for that bike BTW!

Thx, again for the headsup, she is looking at bloodstones for riding boots (but she does love them flip flops), i just don't see the attraction
