    heat guard under hard bag

    Hey all, I need advice. The metalloid / plastic heat guard under the left side bag that protects from the heat of the muffler has peeled halfway off.

    What adhesive material should I use to glue it back on?

    I don't (personally) know of many adhesives that hold up to the heat of an exhaust, but cold rivets might do the trick. You could get the longer ones and run all the way through the bag & shield then use a small piece of sheet metal (1/2" x 3") as a backing for the rivets on each end of the shield. That way it should never be a problem again.

    You could just get a new one? They are cheap.

    You could use Rutland RTV 500, you could pick it up at any place that sells or service wood/pellet stoves.
    It will withstand temps up to 550 degrees...

    Thanks for the responses.
    -The heat shield is not made of a material that would lend itself to riveting, nor would I want to make holes in the bottom of the saddlebag.
    -Buying a new one is always an option
    -I just found some black silicon adhesive in my garage and used it.
    -If that doesn't do the trick, I'll either try the Rutland RTV 500 or get a new part

    Again, thanks for the ideas
