Looks fantastic. Any melting?

I obviously can't speak for Pard but I believe I've had this setup for a bit longer as I rode with it pretty much the entire spring/summer. I had the heat deflectors installed and still had some exhaust soot on the underside of the LED turn signal lenses. I will say that although the heat deflectors look like a nice insurance piece, they are probably not necessary. The OEM mufflers don't stick out that much and plenty of air circulates which should keep temps down. I'm looking into aftermarket slip-ons and the Austin Racing ones look to be even shorter which may lead me to take the heat deflectors off.

So far so good. No melting.
Going to install my fender eliminator this winter, but just wanted to check and see now that you have had it this way for a while, have you experienced any melting since installing sans deflectors?

No melting, but it has been cold outside.

I will not be satisfied that the eliminator without shields is safe for the signals until next summer comes.

Update on the effects of removing the evotech heat deflector shields and running ducabike LED signals.

The rubber boot at the inboard portion of the signal is getting slightly discolored either from the soot or from the heat.

I think my next move will be to an integrated tail light with signals built in.



That would eliminate the signals and provide a cleaner look.

Mine should be here from Italo-shop on Wednesday. They originally said that the smoke integrated taillight was a month out. Then I received an email telling me that it was shipped.

Damn, that’s disappointing. Guess I will have to install those ugly silver wings...

It is a nice unit!! I received it on Wednesday as expected. It came well packaged in a box within a box, with lots of bubble wrap in both boxes. It arrived via UPS Express straight from Germany.

Pulling the light out of the packaging, the smoke wasn't as dark as you (I) might think "dark smoke" would be. For that, I'm actually thankful. In seeing that video again, now that I have mine, it is exactly the same, smoked, but not black.

Unfortunately, I did not get any pics or start the installation yet as I just did not have any time. I will get some pics this weekend and hopefully install it as well. If not, it will all happen next week. I promise to post up everything. I will say though, that the quality, as I see it so far, is top notch and well worth the price. There was zero hassle with ordering from the German site using the English button to translate the pages, payment via PayPal made money conversion a breeze, and I received A TON of emails from the first moment I registered on the site right up until I received a "Track your package" email from UPS as I watched the truck come down the I-15 into SoCal.

I'll keep you informed but life is busy, so bear with me.
