Anyone got a spare right heat shield?

Hi all. I finished a ride a few days ago and noticed that the heat shield on the right exhaust had fallen off mid ride. (See picture)

Contacted my dealer about getting a new one and they quoted over $300 AUD to replace it. I nearly fell of my chair. I had a quick check online at some overseas retailers, as these are often cheaper, and the best I could find was still around $240 plus postage. I could almost get a new exhaust system for that much!

Anyway, given how many people swap out their stock exhaust, I thought that someone on this forum, preferably in Australia, might have a spare right hand heat shield gathering dust they’d be happy to sell. I’m not worried if it’s black or brushed steel as I’m happy to paint it.

Hit me up with a direct message if you have one available.

Thanks

Brendan

Gday mate,
I’m selling my stock pipes which have the heat shields. I wouldn’t really want to separate them though as I think I’d struggle to sell incomplete pipes.
Dunno if that helps - let me know if you’re interested.

Cheers, Ben.

That's crazy expensive for just that small piece of metal. And I thought I was being fleeced for a new gear lever (Ł85.00 (about $150.00 Australian dollars))!

That looks to be a typical Peter Stevens quote mate, you have to wonder how they calculate a price set on some spares. The faux header pipe covers that sit between the Cat unit and the slip-on are only $50.00 ????


Example, compare the exorbitant list price on OEM shorty levers here to what you can buy off-shore, nearly 1/2 price.

At that price you are near or half the price for new aftermarket slip ons that don’t need the heat shield.

That really sucks, especially if you intending to keep oem exhausts. Do you think contacting Triumph UK directly about this may help? They may have some in a parts bin?

Just out of curiosity I asked my local dealer to quote the shield. Got back to me with $165.00 US.
