I replaced the stock rear fender after a wheelie mishap, on my 2016 500. Must have forgot the exhaust heat tape or pad of some sort, because I melted through the new fender on the muffler side. I ride with Giant Loop saddle bags all the time so it always covered it and never happened with the stock fender. Anybody know what type of heat shield was under the stock fender? Btw, I tried some stick on flat heat shield after I noticed it, but it kept melting.
