Went riding this weekend, Fri & Sat. After I got home I started washing the unit and when I opened the doors and started washing seats I noticed I was looking at the motor and knew something wasn’t right….. Behind the passenger’s side seat a decent size hole had been created after the plastic had melted away. Has anyone seen this?

That doesn't look like it caught on fire, it appears that a hole melted through.

It is directly forward of the exhaust, are all your exhaust shields in place? Talon exhaust gets HOT...

My tin foil is crumbled up in a ball just below the picture. I plan to order the adhesive back heat shield. Can someone give me good advice on some that hold up? Thanks

I used this stuff on my entire rear firewall. About 2000 miles and so far, so good...

Possibly Honda can tap the insulation engineer to help the suspension engineers with the stock shock setup, the insulation engineer seemed to get the aluminum foil placed very well (not saying its high quality but its effective}.
