I seem to recall Procircuit making one but they don't have it on their web site. I am going to fabricate a hanger to lower it away from the pipe but sould still like a stronger one.

Mine has lasted me 4 years and it only cost around $15 new. I'll just put that on the list of wear items like chain sliders, grips, etc.

If it just started doing this. Check and make sure that the mounting tab hasn't been bent inward. Thats a common thing to have happen. Either by your foot or by a crash.
I like the idea of trying to space the pipe away from the frame with a few washers on the mount by your foot.
I was going to also say that Pro Circuit makes one from what I have heard. Ive never seen it myself though. Pick up tha phone and call them.

On both my YZ and WR I just bent the mounting bracket out away from the bike about a 1/4 inch and slightly bent the outer guard to match. Have not had a melting problem since. I did notice that right side crashes tend to push on the outer guard eventually pushing the master cylinder into the exhaust pipe, and has become a routine maintenance check item.
