Slip-ons for 1000rr Heat shield?

Is it wise to take off the underseat heat shield when I install my slip-on?

I want to take it off for aesthetics sake but don't want to melt my battery box.

Who can relate?

And then there's this asshole...

If it's the one on the pipe like on a 600RR, it can be taken off.

It's not attached to the pipe it's attached to the tail. I know that I can take it off but I'm not sure whether I should.

If it's not intruding on anything, leave it......

Re: Slip-ons for 1000rr Heat shield?

I removed mine. The Akra instructions stated that it had to be left on so I did originally but after a 40 minute ride, I stopped for some fuel and felt the can, I could touch it and not burn my hand so it does not get super hot. The shield looked like hell hanging out everywhere so I went home and popped it off. No problems yet and it has a month of riding like that.
