Did some work on my 1000RR this weekend....

I cut off a majority of the heat shield and I polished the end tip of the exhaust. IMO it makes the stock exhaust look a lot better, and it only took a couple of hours.

For the heat shield I took off the tail and marked the heat shield with a sharpie. I then dremelled it off and filed down the edges so it was smooth. After that I used the black sharpie marker to mark the edge of the heatshield where I cut to disguise it more... the black marker really hid the heat shield after I put the tail back on!

I had the exhaust tip end polished shiny, but I decided to sand it down with some ultrafine paper to give it more of a brushed aluminum look like the swingarm.

Pics go in order so click left to right to see what was done.

Not too bad. Now put a POLINI sticker on it and start taking orders as the only distributor in the U.S.

well, it looks better than leaving that shiled with the holes in it ... if the whole pipe could be polished to a mirror like finish while cleaning up the seam of the pipe, i could live with it if i wanted to keep the stock pipe
