Has anyone removed the heat shield above the exhaust can on a cbr1000rr and if so has it affected the tail light i.e melting.Also is it a big job?? :confused:

I have removed all of the heat shielding on my 04 Blade and fitted a micron serpent full system. I found the brackets for mounting the muffler were ugly and the angle of the muffler out the back of the bike just looked wrong. As a result I made a stainless muffler band which raised the muffler even higher. Even this has had no effect on the taillight. I had also heard the melting story but can't say that I have seen any evidence of it myself. To remove the shielding you really only have to remove the seat (2 allen bolts) and the rear ductail ( 2 bolts each side and 2 bolts under the pillion seat) The rest is fairly straight forward. Good luck.
