Stock tank insulation.

Safari tank insulation.

I don't think you could reuse the stock insulation. It probably wouldn't fit well even if you could get it off. I used the foil-backed plastic bubble wrap type and metal-backed tape to hold it on. It's still holding up pretty well after a couple of years of use.

For those of you that have added a heat shield when installing your aftermarket tanks, what material have you used? Perhaps you have reused the shields that came on the OEM tank? I have some of that tape that is used on HVAC systems that might help...
