Fairing Heat Insulation?

Should my K1 1000 fairings have heat insulation on the inside of them to stop heat from the exhaust melting them?

My fairings don't have anything insulation/heat reflection on them, so I wanted to check if that was right or not

The ones on my 08 750 came off...I ran it for about 15,000miles and it did not effect the fairing at all

Re: Fairing Heat Insulation?

The parts fiche indicates that it didn't appear until K5. Its necessity depends a lot on the exhaust pipe routing. Seemingly minor changes can make a big difference.
