The right price and I'd be in, mines 80% (flat spot from trying to ride off with a disclock on - 170 miles on the clock :( ) and it buggs me

Go by a muffler shop and have them bent a piece that is the correct diameter and cut a shield out.
It can't be that difficult!

They`re twin skined , a single skin would just heat up too much.
