I Ride: Diavel
Shift Tech frame covers.

Put these on and had a chance to test them today.

First: They look very nice as it covers most all of the frame that you can see. It does not cover the part of the frame that tucks under.

Install was a bit of a pain until I took the left shock loose then all was easy.

Instruction is the shits. I has a picture but know explanation as to what to do. I e-mailed shift tech and their answer was not much better. If you decide to buy here is what you need to know.

It comes with heat tape, so I cleaned frame with alcohol and then dried and warmed with a hair drier. Tape sticks well to frame and any extra tucks in to the frame very easy. The epoxy that comes with it is in 2 tubs to it looks like A B but is not. Just put on the heat tape as per the picture and install the covers. One tube per side. The let set up 8 hrs before use.

Function: Someone said that they didn't notice any difference in heat, however I can tell you there is a huge difference. Today was cool but I did get engine to 200. With frame bolted directly to engine the frame becomes a convection heater. In the past I could not hold my hand to the sub frame on my thighs would cook if I was warring jeans. Now I can hold my had directly on the frame covers and warm but not hot. I can not feel ANY heat.

I must say I couldn't be happier with the outcome.
Thanks from ScrapperX
