i have a aftermarket exhaust to be honest dont know what it is. it says ss and has like a chevy logo on it almost lol. But the problem is that it is a full exhaust system with the header and everything but it dosent have a heat shield. it dosent look like the stock heat sheild can fit on it because there are no mounting holes on the header. Is there a way to fabricate something to mount it onto the header? My buddy has a honda 400ex and his snow pants melted from the head pipe and he didnt even notice it. i dont want that to happen to me becasue the head pipe on the yfz sticks out more than the honda. so the question is can i fabricate the heat shield to mount onto it? And the second question is will it fit? the stock head pipe and mine look the same but i dont want to buy the heat shield if it wont fit.

A lot of aftermarket heat shields use a stainless steel hose clamp for a universal fitting. I bought the Monster exhaust heat shield for my Dasa header & mid pipe.

Do you think that the stock heat shield would work? What do you think i need to do to make it fit?

I took the stock heat shield and welded up some nuts on my aftermarket head pipe. Looks factory.

The stock heat shield, or any shield is just a matter of where bolt or mounts were placed. Correct spacing, and marked locations is key! Any welding shop should be able to fab mounts for this task. You could also always use a high quality exhaust wrap as well.
Good Luck.

So I can just buy the heat shield and bring it to a shop and they can make the mounts?
