Just picked up a 2012 N1K green- love the bike but one thing bugs me.
The right side exhaust has nice heat shield covering the pipe leading to the muffler, but the left side has a large gap showing the bare metal pipe leading to the black muffler. I understand that the side stand has to tuck in there, but any ideas on how to cover this up?
I'm not wild about the stock mufflers and will be replacing them when funds allow, but imho this makes the muffler look even worse on the left side. Maybe some hi temp black paint for the pipe (and maybe the cat while I am at it?)
Most of the photos I see in this forum show only the right side. Do any of the slipons (I like the Akra carbon) address this issue?
