Hi Joe, if you mean the small one mounted above the footpegs, no, just bolt it on, have them on my 750 and the R, all OK.

Cheers guys.

I have a little bit of reflective tape so I guess it won't hurt to stick it to the back of it. I was mainly interested in the contact area where the bolt passes through conducting alot of heat into the carbon around the mounting holes ?

cheers

Hi Joe,
I've had one on for about a year now, with no shielding and no worries- I do have shielding on the underseat carbon piece, though.
I reckon if you have no catalyst you should be OK.
