Exhaust problem.Is this bad???Photo

Oww yeah, I don't think you want to be heating that up! I could be wrong, but I would bend the pipe in a little bit in, just so it isn't touching.

Lets see what others say.

can you wrap some heat shield around the pipe?

I think i wont be able to do that since there is no space between them!!

I would call WB and tell them what your dealing with. Your shock makes enough heat in itself and I wouldn't think adding the added heat of the exhaust (which is quite a bit) would be a good think. IMO

The shock reservoir is going to get very hot when riding reguardless of the exhaust location and this is totally normal. With heat though, comes a change in performance characteristics as the oil and nitrogen are heated. I would do your best to minimize the heat exchange to the shock from the exhaust. If the pipe is in direct contact (hard to tell from the pic) with the reservoir I would see what you can do correct that. You don't want those two components sitting on each other. If there is a small gap you should be fine. Start by calling the company and see what they say, I'm sure they have been asked this question before.
