I recently tried one of the cheap CCP slipon mufflers on my 790 and ended up putting the stock muffler back on.

One reason I installed the CCP slip on was to get the exhaust trajectory down lower and away from my duffle bag when I strap it onto the rear seat.

Now since I am back with the stock exhaust I am curious if anyone has strapped on a duffle bag on their rear seat and discovered the exhaust had melted the end of the bag?

Having read about melted turn signals I would love to hear from anyone who actually had a signal melt or luggage destroyed by hot exhaust.

Saw this pic of a guy on this forum who had a meltdown due to his home made tail tidy.

Fairly common issue. At least one tailtidy mfr supplies indicator heat shields. Rack shields are pretty much standard. H&B do sell their heat shield with parts to use with a seat mounted duffel.

Today I answered my question. Filled my duffel with stuff, strapped it on the rear seat and rode about 40 miles. Speeds ranging from 15 to 100 and nothing melted or even got hot and this is with the stock exhaust.

Now I am good to go for a nice road trip once the temps warm up a bit. ;)

Is there any aftermarket connector to lower the muffler angle so it's point back rather than so far up? I'd love to put stuff on the rear rack along with soft bags over the rear seat and tour on this bike.

Some pics of my Peter Rabbit touring soft luggage.

Only get to do one of two overnight trips a year due to limited funds being retired so duffel bag touring has to do.
