Cat heat shield

Anyone know of a good Cat heat shield for the left side of the Multistrada 1200s 2015
I swear on long trips I have to hang that foot off the bike to cool it down, felt like I blistered it
several times...

right side is fine

Get a link pipe kit and remove it completely...much better.

Or you could try some wrap but it a tricky shape.

It's not that easy. Link pipe means servo delete/hack plus a new slipon to make the new obnoxious noise acceptable and all of which may cause new fueling issues so now one of the tune options needs to be done.....

AFR = Air Fuel Ratio as measured at exhaust while on dyno I presume.

I said "may" as every bike will be different and will vary depending on link pipe used and end can chosen. So yeah, with the amount of bikes I've had tuned because of this and the amount of people that do the exhaust and now have it popping/banging, I stand by my opinion.

The popping is normal far as I can tell, does it stock even with the most recent update, the ST4s (I had two) did so also with stock exhaust or aftermarket cans, but, that said, I have heard that if I do the cat delete it’s best to map it, wonder could I make baffles for the stock muffler if I do delete the cat?

My 1200 DVT engine and exhaust are bone stock, and its had the popping on deceleration since it left the showroom floor. I personally like the popping sound though.
Do a google search for "inline motorcycle db killer" or "inline motorcycle catalyst". I've been considering upgrading my exhaust with a decat midpipe and new silencer but dont want it insanely loud and have thought about using one of these. It would just be a matter of ordering the right diameter.
