We had this discussion earlier in re: the MAC pipes, and I think the Forum was split. My understanding is that most after-market systems don't come with heat shields, so if you'll have to find the right size at your dealer or Ayers. For the short time that I had the MACs on, I wasn't into the possibility of burning jeans or flesh, and so purchased a small heat shield for the left side (which was perilously close to my calf). While it probably provided some protection, the shield I bought sat really close to the pipe itself - I'm not sure if I'd pressed my leg up against the pipe accidentally if I still wouldn't have been burned. Hyper's flame version (ironic, no?) seems to sit off the pipes just a little - might be a better option if you're really looking for some protection.
