When I installed Procycle's case protectors on my DR650, I used the orange, high-temp silicone. Worked well, but the orange was visible and ugly. I read that a thicker silicone layer offers cushioning and therefore better protection, so the stainless steel was bedded in between 1/16 and 1/8" of silicone. I am about to install a homemade stainless steel case protector for the shifter on my WR250R. Thank you cjbiker for the dollar store stainless steel spatula idea: http://advrider.com/forums/showpost.php?p=21130122&postcount=34553 All silicone is somewhat temperature resistant, and I'm wondering whether plain old silicone sealant would work as well as the high temp variety. Clear or black would look a lot better than orange. If high temp is better I'll use it, but if no difference, I'd rather use something less noticeable. I don't have an accurate way to measure the temperature of my engine cover, so I am asking for advice. Does the cover get hot enough that I should use high-temp, or will any old silicone do?
