    This, my concern is not so much it blocks from my legs but how much air they force up into the seat, as I have measured my seat sides at over 130f after rides...

    I did not install mine last night. They are going to rest against that beautiful orange frame in a few places so I wanted to get some protection. The edges of the coolers are turned in toward the frame and are only the thickness of the cooler so these will cut into the orange pretty easily.

    I got some foam tape and some rubber grips that I can split and put over the frame. I'll look at it tonight and make a decision of what I put down.

    My seat already has the factory updated insulation so it should be okay. Im about to order my Wings shorty and if the coolers work I want to add them to my order.

    The Wings system comes with a insulation blanket that goes right over the computer under the seat, runs up the back of the tank and drapes down the sides a little. This blanket alone should help a lot.

    Mine does too... the silver foil stuff. It really doesn't matter. It was finally above 70f yesterday and I could feel my little buddies roasting at every stop light.

    This sounds perfect, got any pictures?

    That's just shitty, to behave like you're not interested and than build a little different product with exact the same purpose.

    Best not jump to conclusions. Wings may have been developing their version at the time Corsica101 approached them, but were not willing to disclose their project at the time. They launched the Wings mufflers for the 1190 without Corsica101 supplying them a prototype. They seem a reputable company and provide good customer service.

    Yes it works!!! Today I installed them and then test rode around town then on the freeway (100mph for a few miles) to get the motor nice and hot then back around town and it was over 90 here in SoCal. Sitting in traffic i did not notice the heat creeping up around the seat, the front seat was no hotter than the rear seat, the blanket that it supplied is the reason, very nice way to keep heat away. I think i am going to put some foil insulation on the inside of the shields just because i have some. I still am going to get an arrow de-cat pipe down the road or just decat them myself. They do work and I am happy plus they are beautifully made!

    Thanks but you think there's potential for the wiring/computer to start having problems with that extra heat blanket?

    I don't care for the heat either or any "two" things getting toasty but also don't want the wires to melt or computer to fry.

    It looks like a fiberglass mat with a foil covering on the underside. I don't think the computer is going to get any warmer than it all ready gets, if your moving the front vent moves air in there so maybe that part of the heat is less for the computer?

    Mine cost 198 Euros plus P&P 13 Euros. I think the price is reasonable for high quality carbon fiber parts that add to the look and value of the 'bike. Here are the mounting/ attachment instructions that Gorazd (owner of Wings) sent me:

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_rnmydbRSpJYTFXaFpDalhicGJSNU5JcjlJSEtDVVdncnBN/edit?usp=sharing

    If anyone wants to contact Gorazd Marovic and order a set, his email address is wings@siol.net

    The carbon fiber heat shield is a new product that is not yet listed on the company web site. As KTM inmates know, Wings are a manufacturing company in Slovenia, making aftermarket titanium exhausts for most KTM motorcycles and the recent carbon fiber heat shield / cooler for the 1190. Wonway in USA and nerb in Australia use the Wings exhaust. nerb produced a nice video of fitting it, which is now featured on the Wings web site. The web site (in English) is here:

    I see on the left side you have it tucked under the seat, but on the right side it's mounted on top of the seat. Is there a correct way?

    Just about to send my payment for a Wings short can and a seat cooler heat shield. It appears that the exhaust carbon fiber is gloss finish and the heat shield in gloss would match it. However, on my 1190 std., I think the mat finish shield would blend with the rest of the bike's plastic better.

    Appreciate any opinions from owners of the shields

    Thanks...

    On the right side the gloss of the heat shield on the pipe and the seat cooler look really nice together!

    Hi all first post..Just wanted to jump in here
    I just sent a email requesting a price quote for the shorty and the heat shield as well. I think I'm going for the gloss, to match the rear glossy side panels below the seat. Will see how it goes....
