Short term buy DEI's heat shield. It comes in different sizes as shown in that link. Find the size you need, note the part number and see if you can find it cheaper. You should also note that the Scout exhaust runs a lot hotter until it's broken in. Myself, I've had great success keeping the heat down during break-in by having the oil changed. I've had it changed at 30, 500 and now 1500 miles.HELP.... View attachment 24845
This is what happens when I ride my Scout. I love it so much but dread stopping and trying to hold my leg off the HOT pipe. I'm literally a new week old rider and just about 5'3. What in gods creation can I do besides losing 50 pounds on my thighs by tomorrow??
