As mentioned in other threads, both of these work https://rjsoriginals.com/07RG.htm or https://shop.captain-itch.com/main.sc.
I have RJ’s on mine & my brother had captain itch on his ultra, both work good but I think RJ’s looks & fits a bit better.

sorry i should have been more specific. i have heat deflectors under the seat. The issue is with my right calf when my foot is on the floor board. i am wondering if swapping out the headers would be a solution to the heat issue

Stock bikes do run hot for EPA regulations. You could do a stage 1 pipes and a tune will cool it down somewhat, but it is what it is!
Ride safe and congratulations

I have a '17 Road Glide. I wear Chippewa Rally Boots and have no problem with heat on my right leg. The boots are leather lined and have what appears to be a layer of neoprene between the layers of leather. At about $265 or so, you won't find a cheaper, or better, fix.

Like judgedelta said taller riding boots will definitely protect your lower legs, good luck

Make sure you have the rear cylinder deactivation turned on. It does help some.

I have a 17 RGS and after any ride the exhaust heat shields would be pinging like crazy for a while after shutting down. Lots of heat off that right side while riding as well. This may be overkill for your situation but it will solve it and put a big smile on your face.
I purchased a Fuel Moto ceramic coated head pipe, their Jackpot Hi Roller mufflers, their AC/DC intake and a Power Commander V tuner - complete Stage 1. Man what a difference. No heat issues whatsoever. No pinging even after long runs in hot weather. Rode all day in 90+, high humidity weather yesterday and didn't even feel the exhaust heat on my legs.
And the sound of this setup! More than what I was hoping for - great deep low rumble, nice growl when on the throttle and still hear the radio when cruising. So happy with this setup and the customer service from FM. I had always heard good things about them and can now attest to it. Highly recommend.
