Barker exhaust...

I like my new exhaust... except for one thing. The heat shield is too small and allows too much heat to your leg at low speed. In 1st and 2nd gear at low speed, I think that there is not enough air flowing by to keep your leg from getting burned from the heat. This is radiant heat and needs to be shielded better. I am going to take measurements today to have my friend fab up a better heat shield for me. JMO

I'd like to hear from others who have the Barker exhaust to see what they think. I'll also call Eric at EHS tomorrow to let him know... I know that EHS does not make the exhaust, but he should know of any potential issues and pass that info on.

Totally agree.Me and blkcruzer was talking about that. This winter wearing longjohns under my jeans it didnt bother me as much. I have done and burned holes in 3 pair of levis. moose racing makes carbon fiber heat shield you can put on behind the one that comes with it.They make a 6inch and 8inch one. I thought about taking the little barker one off and trying the stock honda header heat shield but havent tried it yet. the stock one will work with the fmf header.

Just got back from 1st riding trip with the Barker system on. Awesome power and response! But it is very hot. I was going to try and fab a bigger shield out of some 16 or 14 gauge stainless.

This isn't a Barker issue, Any large header will be close to your leg and generate radiant heat. They already offer a fix for this.. Ceramic Coating. I'm sure they could build a larger bulky heat shield but it would cost the same if not more than a coating.

I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.

Riding pants and boots is all you need... I've never had a problem, and have never used a heat shield...

Even with a shield, it will still get hot.. When I first started riding, I would ride with jeans and what not... it's metal, it's not like it really prevents heat... but that's just me...

What about using a header wrap like on a hot rod?

Isn't it the air that moves between the pipe and the shield that lowers the temp that you actually feel on your leg? I would think that as long as you were moving that a shield would have to help. I will try the riding pants and boots also and see if it helps me out, thanks.
