FM Project Exhaust melting boots

Hi all,

I recently put the FM Projects exhaust on my F3 and it looks and sounds great. By when I ride more aggressively, I have started to melt my right boot on the exhaust tip and gas:




Does anyone have any recommendation of rearsets that will lift the pegs 20-30mm or more to help clear the top of the pipe?

I like the look the the Rizoma rearsets and they area good price, or Lightech ones but really searching for a solution to the melting.

Hi Matt,

I have a similar problem you can see remnants of my last pair of boots on the exhaust tips.

I custom made a heel guard. So far it works fine.

It is a little bit bulky but does the job

interesting idea. The FM Project already has a carbon guard that goes a long way back, but my foot just hangs over the end of it.

Melting

Buy adjustable rear sets, you can adjust your boot out of the exhaust path. I bought Rizoma, they are very nice.

I had the same problem, after one trackday. I had a hole through my boot. I made rearset adjustments the next day at the track, with more comfort and my boot no longer gets burned.

To fix boot, I filled in hole with black Shoe GOO, worked great.

No one is going to ruin this day for me!

I ended up getting some rizoma rearsets and changed my riding style slightly and haven't had a problem. The rearsets are great and have way more grip than stock as well.
