All of the aftermarket exhausts remove the plastic pieces that mount between the factory cans and the tail. Are they just there for appearance or do they actually act as a heat shield? I am just curious how the aftermarket cans do with heat with the plastic pieces gone. Thanks guys.

the stock cans do get very hot even under normal riding conditions.I dont think they would pose muck threat to you operating the bike I think they are intended for passenger protection mostly.I sure the hell would not want my leg or arm to touch them after a ride.
