Paniers on exhaust

6 posts in this topic

I got some soft paniers for my WR for alonger ride we are planning. They are meant for a sport bike but fit nice, only problem is the right side rests on the exhaust. Anyone have any ideas on how to save a meltdown?

Bend up some brackets, attach to both the fender and side panel, to hold the bags up off the pipe...or run them far enough forward that they rest on the side panel only and not the pipe...

How about Making a thin aluminum sheet metal heat shield an pop rivit it to the inside of the pannier where it touches the exhaust. That way you don't have to drill a bunch of holes in the bike and the panniers will be custom fit for the WR

Thanks for the ideas. I'm looking at both. I like the heat shield idea and I might look for a material rather than aluminum. There must be a heat resistant fabric out there.

Hit your local chef's supply store for a silicone sheet pan liner. It can be trimmed to fit, is flexible, and if it will take the heat in the oven, it should survive your silencer.
