Re: exhaust problem and cure?
Well for the hose idea, I went and bought a new hose and I cant re route the hose without haveing the same problem, after assessing it witht he fairing off I took a 3/4 hose and made a slice down the center to act as an insulator just like the factory did where the hose rest against the lower fairing stay bracket and secured it to a tab on the block, so now it is away from the header, adn not going to fall back onto it and it has the insulator to keep it from wearing a hole in it. I ordered some self adhesive heat deflector stuff from napa, it says it good for deflecting heat from exhaust and other high temps. it looks like a foam with adhesive on one side and a deflective aluminum shield stuck to the other side. any thoughts. there isnt a hole lot of room to put a shield in there that would allow airflow on both sides.. I will try to put some on the foam on the lower fairing, and on the tank. any other thoughts or ideas are appreciated I havent done this yet so I still have options if you all want the share
