they are replacement mufflers, instead of replacing the entire exhaust. now back to my question-- anyone know of any heat shields besides the universal fit heat shields from cobra? thanks!

Here's one I found at a mostly Harley shop.
It really only worked mounted here due to the tips of the flames having a tendency to catch the cuff of my pants.
Otherwise, I've got 3 universal ones in other needed places.

I found THIS site which has similar ones (about 1/2 way down the page) but I think I payed only $20 for one.


Yeah, I've lost one of the swingarm caps too !!

You mean these....


I believe mine might be Cobra's but I'm not positive. Were on the bike when I got it.
It is a good bit louder than stock. I also have a good bit of popping. I pesonally like the loud sound.
