Hi All

I need to confirm if the heat shield on the standard exhaust changed on the 2008 model. Is that right?

While I'm here, it would help to know what parts of the exhaust changed through the years on the 1050. Was the only other change the position of the sensor? This info will help with some potential internet purchases.

Thanks in advance.

Original pipe: 2005 to late 06. Header ends further back and O2 sensor is on midpipe. This design is still in use in Australia bikes.

Late 06 to end of 07. Header ends closer to front of bike. O2 sensor is in header. Midpipe has larger catalysator bulge and heat shield.

08 onwards. Similar to previous evolution, but mufflers are completely different, as are also the heat shields. Can mounts are also an inch or so at different place, so old style TOR cans for example are not a direct fit without modding.


I think there might have also been a shortlived version around 07 where the midpipe angle changed to route closer to frame.
