- Reflect-A-Cool is a sheet of reflective material with an adhesive back which offers outstanding protection against extreme heat.
Deflects the heat like it's supposed to! Great adhesion to almost any surface.
With the way number plates are made or cost cut backs .. Who knows.. You pretty much should just order this when you buy new number plates because all the major plastic manufacturers don't seem to put a heat barrier on the exhaust side anymore or hardly ever this stuff is a very good replacement and holds up very well a little pricey but worth the money..
This was easy to fit to the inside of my side panel/number plate and thusfar has kept it from melting. :) Great product.
I bought this to line my lowers to protect it from a close running exhaust pipe. However, I this product is much thinner than I expected, and while it may reflect well, it doesn't insulate well.
This stuff works great bought an over sized tank for my YZF400 and didn't want to over heat my fuel as well as wanted to replace my number plate heat tape. Well worth the couple bucks for the tape rather then plastics or other heat issues.
I installed this heat shield on the bottom of an IMS 2.7 gallon tank for my KX450 after noticing the new tank rode very close to the cylinder head/exhaust header. Keeping the fuel cooler not only helps performance, it keeps the fuel pump col so it lasts a long time. The fuel stays noticeably cooler now.
Installation is easy, just clean the bottom surface of the tank with WD40 to get the grease off, then alcohol to get the WD40 off. Peel a little backing off of the heat shield at a time and apply it with your fingers, avoiding any air bubbles. Use a razor blade to trim off the excess. The 24" sheet was more than enough to do my tank, the back of my side number plate (muffler side) and still have extra. Great product!
Great product. Works as described and has many uses for heat protection.
I reccomend this to everyoneee especially with after market side panels because they dont put it on like the stock ones but it worked great for me very easy to install lasts forever
It was easy to cut and shape. It has been on my tank now for a few months and is still holding.
Great product for the inside of my rear number plate on the exhaust side. The material is light weight, so it forms and cuts really well. I have an aftermarket can, it gets hot, and so far no issues at all with warping the plastic in four track days. One 12x12 sheet covered the entire inside of the plate on my RMZ, had a bit left over too.
Purchased and installed this heat shield after painting bike. Edges dont have much adhesive and will come up. Make sure surface is clean and free of Oil and dust as this will not stick if its not.
Great and easy to manipulate. I used it for my track bike 07 Suzuki Gsxr 600, and put it on the belly pan of Armour Bodies race body. I ran bike on a stand and check for body temp. stayed cool to the touch even when the thermostat kicked in at 220*
Side note -I have aftermarket headers on as well
Paper thin. It's ok to put over stock or original heat shield.
This is a good replacement for the factory heat protection under the exhaust side number plate. The 12 x 24in sheet was just the right amount for the whole number plate. I almost ordered the 12 x 12in sheet which would not have been enough. Cutting it to fit is easy, just takes a few minutes. I am not sure about the durability yet. The factory stuff didn't last any time when using a power washer. Based on looks and install time I give it 4 stars.
Helps keep plastics near exhaust
from melting. I put it on the whole
underside of the number plate by
the exaust. It forms really well to
uneven surfaces and stays intact.
Great product for keeping parts of your machine cool. New or old this stuff can really help you out. Helps keep your gas from boiling in the tank on long or hot days which increases performance, protects plastics from the heat of the engine and exhaust, and you can just cut and stick it anywhere. I have some on my cannondale quad next to the exhaust and on the bottom of the tank, kx250f tank, and on my Aprilia sxv.
Very nice tape for use around exhaust pipe/canister. I have an undertail exhaust and installed it under the entire inner fender. It forms very nicely to uneven surfaces and stays intact.
Very good at deflecting heat! saves you from melting your plastic and great to put on gas tank to help keep from boiling!
