I reckon you were on a Scrambler.


Not a Tiger. You simply cannot burn your legs on the exhaust of the Tiger unless you fall underneath it.

There had been several reports of melting both pants AND boots on the Tiger exhaust. I haven't experienced this but others have. Maybe a 2011 guard issue? I know you can get a larger heel guard from aftermarket suppliers for this exact issue.

Have you tried removing it? I found it a bit of a struggle to get in and now I'm finding it impossible to get out to clean it. There's nothing to get hold of. I think it'll have to be a strip down to get into the airbox to push it out from the inside.

Wrong. There is a vulnerable spot near the rear master cylinder.

The seal is pretty plyable. Should be able to push down on top of the seal and get a finger behind it. Havent taken it out. Just put it in.

Pliable? Maybe it needs heating up. Mine is pretty stiff and access isn't too good. All I can get near it is one or two fingers.

True dat!!

I have left parts of the cuff of my Aerostitch pants, Traverse pants and Badlands pants on my exhaust. I have found that when I put my feet back on the passenger pegs during long highway stretches, the wind blows the right pant leg onto the exhaust pipe.

I think Twisted Throttle has a master cylinder/exhaust pipe cover that will fit over the spot for the Tiger.

Funny... I've heard of that happening but not to me.
I did 450km on Sunday mostly 3rd 4th & 5th gear twisty stuff, so the revs were up. I was wearing rubber waterproof pants even though it wasn't wet and had no problems with heat.

You'd think if anything was going to melt those pants would have.

They do, and it works well. I powdercoated mine.

Er... nope. Haven't tried removing it as yet. Been pretty wet here in formerly sunny Melbourne and the pre-filter looked dust free. I just assumed it would be like the snorkel boot and pull out. There's a big rectangular rubber bit that sits in the outside of the airbox that looks inviting to squeeze and pull.
