750-101(1600) heat shield question
About a half a year ago, I bought an use heat shield through an Alfabb member which I yesterday tried to fit on my 1600 Spider with double front exhaust pipes and which eventually showed pretty impossible getting in place due to lack of space because of the twin pipes (or if I didn´t try enough hard?).
If I remember correctly, the seller said his heat shield came of off either 750 or 1300 Spider, both equipped with single front exhaust pipes.
Unfortunately at the time I didn´t reflect at all over the potential single or twin pipes issue and possible lack of space due to it.
I checked with my 1600 Sprint equipped with only one exausted pipe (the early edition) and there was no problem, as well as the heat shields were identical, so my question is, where there possibly different type/sizes of heat shields depending on what type of front exhaust pipes various models were equipped with?
It also seems the possibility of attaching the heat shield with the two screws at the edge of it is missing on the Spider, no holes there as on the Sprint.
Could anyone with a 1600 Spider with the two front exhaust pipes post some pics?
