I used to throw a clamp on mine occasionally to get it back to original shape
....of course not while you are riding!

Just wrapped the bastard completely and seems to be doing the job, won't really know for a few months ( only an occasional rider... Dam work commitments ), Even covered the inside of the side panel next to the exhaust - Recently fitted a Staintune and its starting to affect it

This sounds like a great alternative... I wonder if they made the brake pedal slightly larger too...

I had the same exact issue. I simply made a shield out of a small piece or scrap aluminum flashing and mounted it to the same bolts that holds the resevoir. You can hardly see it and it deflects the heat perfectly. It actually looks kinda factory...which is kinda scary coming from me...LOL
Can you post a pic?
I just bought a new reservoir from Yamaha I should have read this first! I would of gotten a WR450 setup
So I would like to see what you did so I can copy

Then found that i had very little brake fluid in reservoir, surprised that the back brake actualy worked.
Just been into the stealer to order a new one, £21 bargin really i was, expecting more like £30-£35.
Looks like I'm making a heat shield for it for when i fit it friday night so deff riding sunday!
