Design Engineering (DEI)

Indian Challenger Heat Shield Liners

Avon Lake, Ohio based sound and heat management specialist Design Engineering (DEI) has added to its range of motorcycle heat shield liners with this fitment for Indian Challenger models.
DEI precision CNC-cuts each piece for a perfect fit in between the exhaust pipe and the heat shield, blocking heat transfer and lowering the surface temperatures of the outer shield. Easy to install, with no permanent modifications needed, the aluminum and proprietary Dura 2000 dual layer insulating material construction is said to offer a 60% reduction in heat.

"Heat from the exhaust system can become uncomfortable, especially riding in slow traffic," says DEI's Powersports Manager John Gabriel. "This issue really comes into focus for those with shorter legs. Not wanting to disrupt the attractive lines and appearance of the exhaust, our heat shield liner kit insulates the outer heat shield without disturbing the looks of the bike."
Completely hidden when installed, the durable, long lasting materials do not produce the kind of smoke or odor that is often associated with inferior materials. By reducing the heat radiating from the exhaust system, the rider and passenger get a cooler ride - especially noticeable when the rider stops and puts their feet on the ground.
The liners install inside the head pipe heat shields, so attention should be paid to the brand of head pipe being run rather than the brand of muffler. These kits are designed for use with the stock and popular aftermarket Challenger exhaust applications and compatible with black or chrome head pipes.
Like the other heat shield liner kits from DEI, the Indian Challenger kit is complete and will line all the heat shields on the head pipe. Since they are hidden inside the heat shields, they will work with black or chrome exhaust systems.
