Ahh sorry, Id forgotten to upload these.

Disclaimer: This is not her setup to go riding. When going riding she would have on leather boots that cover the ankle. Riding passenger on an 890 without ankle covering boots would increase the chance of getting burned.

As you can see the S1 exhaust sits in a position where burning the calf is impossible, so as long as your passenger has ankle covering boots they should be fine. The S1 also sits farther away from the peg brackets than the stock exhaust.

These first two pictures are with the peg on the ball of the foot. There is no contact with the exhaust, but if she were to rotate her heal inward there would be contact with the carbon end cap (why boots are important). The carbon end cap does stay considerably cooler than the titanium body of the exhaust. Also notice her leg is not aligned with the passenger peg bracket.

These pictures are with the peg on the arch of the foot. Riding in this position doesn't allow the foot to rotate and hit the end cap, it also aligns her leg with the passenger peg brackets removing any chance of exhaust contact.

She's never paid attention to her foot placement when riding and has never gotten burned by the S1 exhaust.
Hope this helps.
