Default Broken Heat Shield

One of the clips on my front heat shield broke off.
I am wondering what happens to all the heat shields that are removed when a new exhaust system gets installed? Must be a big box of them somewhere?

If you have one in your garage, give me a PM for a sale.
Mine's a 98 but probably up to 05 will fit.

Thanks

Check out your local dealers and shops. Don't forget the swap meets. You can drill it and pop rivet it for a temporary fix. Hope this helps.

Might have one, saw a pile of them in a shed I'm cleaning up for a friend yesterday. Got a close up picture of it?

Thanks.
Was going to try welding it but never got around to it.
I JB Welded it, and that lasted until I started the bike...
then I just put a worm clamp around the whole heat shield.

Ended up getting a set of heat shields off ebay for $5 (+ $20 shipping)
Found out both heat shields were broken on the end clip. I guess 10 years will do that.

I still believe there must be hundreds of stock heat shiels somewhere, with all the full exhaust system replacements out there.

just run a polished stainless hoseclip around the outside of the head shield, nobody will even notice and it will outlast the exhaust system
