drooped my scoot in the mud.does anyone know where i can purchase a muffler heat shield. Don't really want to pay inflated dealer price for a piece of chromed plastic. Good condition used would also work.

Ebay would be the obvious first choice. Also, any Canadian online parts supplier should be able to get the part in for much less than dealer MSRP.

US List price... $106.45. This should give you a starting point to see if you are getting a good deal or not.

Good Luck! small moped

There is a guy parting out a Silverwing or 2 on Ebay right now, as well.

I'd just rip the whole damn exhaust system off and replace it with this:

If you put that system on your scoot, it's unlikely that you'd be able to use that nice useful pair of saddlebags you have on your photo above my post. Smile

Funny you should say that. I was actually contemplating that just yesterday.

I had inquired to LeoVince USA about fitment for the Swing. They immediately got back to me with their model # and a Canadian retailer who gave me a good price.

On looking at their picture of the LeoVince installed on a Swing, I realized the upswept muffler would interfere with my right saddlebag. In choosing between a LeoVince exhaust and the GIVI saddlebags, the usefulness of the saddlebags far outweighs any exhaust benefits for me.

If any Canadians are looking for a LeoVince Swing exhaust, let me know. I've got a great supplier with a good price.

Bigbird,
The Leo Vince attaches to the rear of the bike in the same locatin as the stock bracket. Any muffler shop can bend the pipe a little to give you the angle you prefer.
Its hard to see in the small upper left of the picture below, but as you can see the
Leo Vince does not interfere with where I put my saddlebags at all.

No reason not to have your cake and eat it too.

Dan

Thanks Dan. Good to know. I'll sleep on that one over the coming winter.
My only other concern is the sound itself.

I had a Yosh exhaust on an SH150i. I loved the bark, but at sustained constant speeds of 40+ mph the droning was really irritating.
Does the LV drone at higher steady rpm?

I think the irritation factor is very personal.
I don't find it irritating @ all.
As I recall it is a slightly lower note than a stock exhaust.
Of course I don't recall the last time I only went 40 mph. Twisted Evil

Old issue for many but the Silverwing that I bought had scrapes an scratches on the chrome protector HP18318-MCT-020. I contemplated sanding and painting with heat paint until I found Partzilla.Com I ordered a new one which will be here Tuesday for 70.97 plus 10.95 shipping. Looks to be a warehouse that deals in big Honda orders. I shall let you know. This is really the only part that I needed to make my bike look good.

Another option would be to use carbon fiber wrap. Applies easily and cost around $10 (ebay) for a roll big enough to do this plus the underskirts, mirrors etc. My heat shield wasnt damaged but i just liked the look. The CF is easy to remove later if desired. I did mine about a year or more ago and the heat from the muffler doesnt affect the product at all, even the end cap of the muffler still looks new.

That looks real cool, hotwings !!! I scratched the heat shield on my wing too, along with a few scratches along the edge when I dropped her after taking her off the centrestand. Of all the damage the heat shield looks the worst when you look up close. I think I will sand it as smooth as possible and do the carbon fibre like yours.
How hard is it? How long would it take? Send me a pm. Thanks.

I received my OEM muffler protector from Fed Ex today as they said it would. I believe I have a new supplier whenever I need OEM parts for my 82 Gold Wing or the 06 Silver Wing. The price was right and here as quick as if I ordered it from the dealer at $107.
