Buying Guide Kawasaki Ridge Heat Shields

Heat shields are immensely beneficial if you find the right ones to install on your ride. Here are the key factors to ponder on:

Construction Material

Opt for heat shields made from heat-resistant materials like aluminum, titanium, or stainless steel. These can handle the intense heat generated by your engine, exhaust, and the environment without warping or melting. Consider the trade-off between weight and protection. Lighter materials offer easier handling, but heavier ones might provide more comprehensive shielding.

Coverage Area

Choose shields that cover specific areas prone to heat, like the exhaust pipe, muffler, and floorboards. This ensures maximum protection for your legs. If you crave ultimate heat deflection, consider full coverage shields encompassing the entire engine and exhaust system. Look for shields with vents for improved airflow or heat sinks for further heat dissipation. Keep in mind that heat shields can offer full or partial coverage. 

Here are the types of heat shields and the areas they cover:

Floorboard Heat Shields: These shields deflect heat from underneath the vehicle, keeping your feet cool and comfortable on long rides. Look for all-in-one shields or several panels that attach independently to cover the floorboards from underneath your Ridge.

All-In-One Shield Solutions: These combine multiple shield types (e.g., exhaust & floorboard) into a single package, offering comprehensive protection and convenience. Ideal for riders seeking all-around heat defense without having separate shields.

Compatibility & Installation Ease

Ensure the shields are designed for your Kawasaki Ridge model and year. Improperly fitted shields can create clearance issues and hinder performance. Look for shields with clear instructions and easy-to-use mounting hardware. This saves you time and prevents frustration, getting you back on the trail faster.

Price and Performance

Heat shields range in price depending on the material, coverage area, and brand. Set a realistic budget and prioritize the coverage areas that are most important to you. Choose reputable brands known for quality materials and ease of installation.
