I just installed a new FMF 4.1 full exhaust. The instructions say that the original heat shields should be reinstalled. I don't see a good way to do this because the new head pipe is so big. One mount lands right on top of the powerbomb section. I don't want to melt my side cover or the plastic cover on my throttle body. Has any body else had to deal with this? I know fmf has a small heat shield for your leg, but I want to protect my 4-wheeler too! Any suggestions?

The stock heat shields do fit, and there was a larger hose clamp included with mine for the mount over the bomb section. The pipe is bigger but it fits well and hasn't melted anything on mine all year.

I only installed the forward half of the oem shield in front of the big chamber. Works fine with just that. Had it off completely until it melted my boot a little.

chariotracer,
If you have any concerns about your installation may I suggest calling FMF at TEL 310.631.4FMF (4363)8am to 5:30pm PST M-F. They may have accidentally left something out of the installation kit. It is a good company and will do anything to make a customer happy.

I have the full system, and didn't install any shields back on it. I learned that you just can't hold your leg there due to burning your leg hair LOL. Other than that, it hasn't melted any plastic or anything else on mine.
