I have a 690R and I left my exhaust stock. It hasn't melted anything people like you claim is the big risk. Doesn't even seem that hot to me. Certainly not on the scale you preach.

I left the exhaust on my Yam Wr250R stock too. It's quieter and retains the bike's perfect fueling.

My mods are mostly for comfort, travel or safety. The safety part for me was a Spot tracker and steering damper.
