Title: One more plee...
Post by: Badbluraider on Nov 21, 2020, 03:50:10 pm
Wanted to hit you guys up once more since the last post only had one response. I have V&H 2in2 Big Radius and the front heat shield has been scraped to the point that there is a crack coming from the scrapes straight up into the good chrome. Much longer and the heat will be in two pieces.

V&H doesn't not even make the heat shield anymore and their warehouses have none of what I need.

Might any of you guys have an older set of these laying around, willing to pay to replace that shield. Secondly if I cannot find one is there any fixing this problem?

Thank you much!

good luck Mark   if it's just the heat shield drill a small hole at the end of the crack and it should stop it from creeping,  might could make a patch and form it to the same shape as the shield, cut a section out of the shield and weld the patch in place and have it re chromed

Perhaps you could do the drill thing to stop the crack and put one of these over it?

Great ideas guys, never thought of drilling a hole to stop the movement. Would love to be able to keep these on. Had a guy on FB that had V&H 2in1 still in the box that wanted to trade me from a pix that he had seen. I sent him a close up of this and it changed his tune a bit. I asked if I could buy the 2in1's outright and that was a NOGO without question. Told him I may go with Freedom Sharp Curves when they get too bad and he still wants to buy them. As stated I am going to do all I can to keep these V&H on the bike. ;D

:agree: I just like the V&H so much on the bike. I do have my eye on a set of Curves.

Thank you much!

Maybe find someone with a tube bender and try matching the curves of your existing heat shield. Then cut the bent tube in half lengthwise and figure a way to attach it.... could attach the same as V&H did (however that is) or perhaps like Dirtiegirtieís suggestion does (thatís is, like shown below). Iím sure Iíve oversimplified this but I think you get the idea. Good luck!
