Fairing burnt from exhaust?????

It appears the little flange that sticks forward doesn't have any insulation on it and the paint has burnt from the heat of the headers. I don't have the picture of the burn but this is the spot. It's at the dealer for another issue and I've asked them to talk to MV about it but it is out of factory warranty and given the state of affairs at MV, they (the dealer) are not hopeful. Course, only 2500 miles...shouldn't happen. Anyone else seen or have this issue? Any one got one for sale?

I had this issue on my 2012 After I installed the bodis ti system. I went ahead and had it heat coated from the headers back and it helped a ton. Mine was out of warranty so couldn't take to dealer about it.

Mine has not burned, but its black so I wouldn't be able to tell. I have other issues right now with vibrations on hard braking, headstock play . Have appointment to have it looked at. May need to hire Knurl to fix it for me, but I don't think I can afford him :^)

On the burning paint issue, there is a removable section at the bottom of the V plate, removing it allows for much better air circulation, at least it did on mine

Thanks for the responses. Looks like I'll need to do what the factory should have done...insulate it. I'm anal so leaving it burnt is not an option. I hate to have it painted for the same reason. If it's not perfect I'll go nuts.

I had the same exact problem with the burnt part. Mine is exactly at the same location where you have circled and it's abit yellowish.

yup me too!! same exact thing and on my white 2015 looks horrible. Only 1300 miles. I know when it happened too i got stuck in a traffic jam and lack of air flow caused it but bike never overheated. I'm already fighting MV on other issues.Getting a new fairing is probably a pipe dream.

So it would seem to be common enough that they should do something about it.

I agree, these common issues should all be taken care of no questions asked. Had i known or even thought about i would have done some heat shielding or something but i just get aggravated modifying something that should have been thought about from the design and build process.

At this point i'm arguing for more warranty from MV due to the fact my bike has been in the shop 50% or more of each riding season since new. Reason for my low mileage. Passing 50K miles on my Honda CBR1000. I'd love to be riding the MV instead.
