Exhaust heat guard: The carbon exhaust heat guard for the Ducati models 848/1098/1198 consists of the exhaust heat guard, which is mounted to the side above the right footrest. A very special high-temperature pre-preg material is used for the production of parts that are mounted near the exhaust system in order to keep discolIlmbergeration and combustion of the carbon as minimal as possible according todays latest technology This part is a direct replacement for the original component and contributes mainly to weight saving on the motorcycle (up to 70% less) and a higher stiffness of the parts.
Like all of Ilmberger carbon fibre parts, it was made according to the latest protocols and industry standards and can be considered to encompass all aspects of current best of industry practice. The part is made completely out of pre-preg carbon fibre materials using an autoclave. As with all Ilmberger carbon parts, we use a clear plastic coating that not only improves the appearance, but also protects the carbon fibre from scratching and has a unique UV resistance.
