The heat shield works like a dream. looks good too. Adam, Nate and Ben, are all about the stuff they design. Great functional integrity.
Okay GCA makes some of the highest quality made in USA products. second to none. I have been so impressed with my past purchases. I had a heat shield from a competitor with the fancy laser cutout logo. It was Garbage, the heat goes right through and melted a dry bag. You know soon as you pick this heat shield up it was designed buy an educated rider. Can't say enough on the design, engineer perfection. Thank you again GCA you make my adventures better🤙🏼
I am paranoid about melting plastics while carrying luggage on my DRZ400. I installed this near the front of the stock muffler. It works great. I have no worries now.
The heat shield worked great. I have a custom-made carry saddle that I can hook Ortlieb's standard waterproof bicycle touring panniers. Have melted one already against my FMF powercore muffler. I taped some adhesive aluminum/FG cloth on the back, but the shield was no hotter than 110 F (checked with a IR thermo). Worked great on a weekend 350 mile camping trip thru the Yukon.
Just put 1100 dirt miles on my drz. The chili's heat shield and 20lt bags worked fabulous. All my gear stayed in place on the rim rocker trail. Thanks guys and gals for making a great trip possible. You are now a part of my travel gear.
