I Ride: 2013 Hyperstrada
Hot Pants - Exhaust burning my pants.

I ride off-road standing. The gap between the frame and exhaust shield is wide enough for my pant leg to touch and melt.



Added cut off end from shield purchased online.



Now, I should be protected.

So that's what that stain on my pipe is...My riding suit is actually an MX suit that I got cheap and the pants are an acrylic type material.

My pants are a custom specified stretch Kevlar Schoeller made fabric. There must be components that melt at the pipe temperatures at that location. Say 700 to 800 F? Something that I want to prevent.
