Wow that's hot!

Hey folks I have spent much time trying to find the information I need on this forum about my exhaust. On the 08 Road Glide the rear cylinder factory exhaust has two pipes one that joins the front cylinder with the O2 sensor and the pipe on the left. That pipe on the left is HOT. My question is this: Is a 2-1 system the only way to address this heat? Are there better heat shields? I like the sound of factory exhaust but I am not opposed to something a little louder but nothing like drag pipes etc. Any suggestions. The more budget friendly the better.

Thanks in heaps.

The only way to cool it down is to tune it away from the lean tune it gets from factory. It will help some, and a freer flowing exhaust will help some more.

I run a fuel moto jackpot 2:1 and they provided the tune as well. Cooled it down a fair bit.

Neither is cheap lol. But well worth the expense. Both in comfort and longevity of the motor.

I think it's just the nature of the beast. I put V&H dresser duals with V&H monster round mufflers on my 08 and the rear exhaust still get's hot. HD & Kuryakyn both make heat shield and I used both and I am using the Kuryakyn heat shields right now, The Kuryakyn heat shield are easier to install and remove then the HD heat shields and I think they look better too.
