Once I went with my yoshi full exhaust and since the head pipe is closer to the fram, doesnt burn as much.

I have the Dasa with the stock heat shield on the front, it took a little work but was well worth it.

I just used a couple hose clamps and some nuts that fit the stock heat shield bolts. This allowed me to put the heat shield where it worked best for me. I will try to take some photo's and post them.

You could do this with probably almost any aftermarket pipe that doesn't have heat shields or mounts.

Okay some photos of it installed. To give you some more details basically. I got the hardware and did a test fit of it over the pipe and slid the nuts under and tightened it up. This let me know which teeth I needed to clip out of the hose clamp so the allen bolt would thread through. Once those were clipped I put everything back in place tightened it up. Then loosely threaded in the allen bolts so that I could adjust the final position of the heat shield.







Someone had did the same thing on my old 350X except they drilled a hole through the hose clamp which would work as well.

If anyone has any additional questions feel free to pm me or ask me here.
