Looking at the "S" and then back at the 08' there is alot more heat shields on the "S". I have plans to put a 10' "S" exhaust on my 08' and before I put the plastic back on what kind of shield do you think I need to add to protect the plastic?

Bart, I got the shields that are on the exhaust/header pipe, but nothing else. My "S" has the shield on the bottom of the bed, and behind the passenger seat.

AGAIN, L00kin good Bart!!

Here's Barts Post

http://www.polarisrzrclub.com/viewtopic.php?t=22348&highlight=exhaust+heat+shields

Just what I've been looking to do. With the leaves down and so dry, we smell smoke on every ride. One in our group has melted the black plastic at the lower edge of the rear fender. Says he has no need for protection...it is already burned off. Thanks Bart!!

Mike,
I posted what I had done for shields under the topic
Exhaust HEAT Shields
You might take a look and see if they are of any help.

Bart, Do you have your own brake, shears and welder? Nice job on the shields, I might be interested in a set if you can make me a set, or I might try myself, but I'll have a ton of questions in the process.

pops, just for info only. aluminum can be cut and shaped with any good woodworking blade/tool. will not compromise your cutting edges.

Mike,
Just like stroker replied, NO BIG Deal to cut yourself. I used a GOOD pair of aviator shears. Just got to take your time and be patient. If you do have questions, NO PROBLEM, just PM or respond to me.

Now that makes it a lot easier, looking at the pictures I was thinking that the shields were made out of sheet metal and galvanized, I didn't think about the shields being made out of aluminum then buffed. Thanks

Bart I will be asking questions on this project for sure.

Thanks for the information, it seem lately all I have been working with has been steel of some kind, most the jobs have been too small to setup the chop saw, been using a sawsall for most of the cuts.

Is the saw a special saw or are the Makita blades made for cutting steel?
