R1200 & R1250 GS(A) Akrapovic Exhaust Heat Deflector
Have you had the Akra exhaust fitted? Is your number plate melting along the side from the hot exhaust gases?
Here`s the answer - A stainless steel deflector which stops the gases hitting the number plate.
Here`s how it works - As the heat dissipates through the assembly the strategically placed air holes allow the air stream to cool the material so that by the time the heat comes in contact with the plastic it won`t melt it!
Easy to fit, simply `sandwich` it in between the number plate and number plate carrier. No drilling and will avoid the cost of replacement number plates and the possibility of a tussle with the Boys in Blue over a non conforming number plate (it`s happened!).
It weighs only 150g so won`t put any undue weight on the three plastic number plate screws - I`ve had my rear spray deflector on my number plate for nearly five years with no problems and that weighs in at 190g.
*Note, this product is designed to work in conjunction with BMW OE pannier rails. If you have any other brand of pannier rails this product may not fit without slight modification.
