E-line make a few pipe guards out of carbon fiber. You may want to look into that.

Another vote for E-Line carbon fiber heat shields. I'm running an E-Line heat shield on my WB header, no more melted pants.

The best way to handle it is with header wrap. Amazing stuff.

fmf makes a clamp on heat shield, nothing to drill or cut.
