Polaris Slingshot Heat Control Kit by DEI (11 Piece Kit)
With the Slingshots compact design and 4 cylinder engine, the muffler, catalytic converter, and exhaust manifold all reside in close proximity to one another on the right side of the vehicle. This concentration of heat transfers into the passenger area, cooking the floor and cockpit area. 
To address this heat issue, DEI Powersports developed a custom cut, 11 piece kit that includes a double walled main heat shield, a single walled floor pan heat shield, and an additional 9 pieces covering the transmission tunnel, rocker panels and center console. The end result is a cooler and quieter Slingshot, allowing for longer rides and greater rider comfort.

I have bought a 2016 SE and here in Texas it gets hot. This along with the heat the engine creates is cooking my wife. The local dealer told me that 2016 models have come with a heat shield to solve this problem. I checked it out and it looks pretty cheesy. My question is will your heat control kit fit over the existing cheesy shield or do I have to rip off the cheesy one to put on ya'lls shield. I also will consider any other suggestions you might have to cool this baby down and make my wife a "Happy Wife". Thanks for your time.

Hello Gary, thanks for the inquiry my friend. The factory heat shield Polaris provides wraps around the factory exhaust can. Our DEI heat kit is far more elaborate than the factory heat kit and wraps the firewall, floorboards and trans tunnel. This will dramatically reduce heat and cabin noise. You can leave the factory Polaris heat shield in place as well if you plan to keep the factory exhaust system.

You may also consider our "Bullet Vented Hood Insert" to allow the engine heat to escape from the hood vent
Here is a link to this item: http://www.slingmods.com/polaris-slingshot-vented-hood-insert-bullet-speed-design

Another great mod to reduce radiant heat is going to the be the "Alpha Side Exit Exhaust" system which throws the hot engine gasses out the right side of the vehicle.
Here is a link to that product: http://www.slingmods.com/polaris-slingshot-side-exit-exhaust-by-alpha

Alot of the heat resonates through the passenger side firewall and trans tunnel, which cooks your feet while driving. The MadStad Adjustable Wind Screen allows air to pass under the windscreen circulating that hot air out of the cabin air.

Lastly, you may consider a factory exhaust manifold heat shield by Alpha or DDMWorks. These shield block the heat that radiates of the stock header.
These can be found here: http://www.slingmods.com/index.php?route=product/search&search=heat%20shield

If you combine these 4 products you will see a tremendous reduction in cabin heat. We encourage you to read the customer reviews on each of these products as well, so you can see for yourself what customers are saying about these product before committing to a purchase.

Are individual pieces/sections available? I see you posted and answer; however, I don't think you understand my question. It is an 11 piece set, I want to buy selected pieces or pieces have fell off my bike; how do I replace the missing pieces - Are individual pieces/sections available?

Hello Ryan, I spoke with DEI on this for you. The kit pieces are not sold individually if you lose one.. but they said if that happens to let us know and we can contact them to see if they have extra pieces lying around to replace the missing item. Another possible solution for you in that scenario is to just buy one of their heating material rolls.

It's priced as follows:

050505    Extreme Heat Barrier    12" x 21" - (1.75 Sq Ft)     $25.95
050501    Extreme Heat Barrier    24" x 21" - (3.5 Sq Ft)        $44.95
050502    Extreme Heat Barrier    48" x 21" - (7.0 Sq Ft)        $89.95
050503    Extreme Heat Barrier    48" x 42" - (14.0 Sq Ft)     $175.95

Hello Ryan, it's 11 pieces total. The kit includes a double walled main heat shield, a single walled floor pan heat shield, and an additional 9 pieces covering the transmission tunnel, rocker panels and center console. ( Ryan )
Does this kit help cut down driver heat or just passenger heat? ( Rando, 08/20/2015 2:49 pm )
Hello Rando, this kit will shield both the driver and passenger from the heat that flows through the transmission tunnel. It will also shield the heat that is generated by the exhaust system on the passenger side floor board. ( SlingMods )
DEI puts out a great product. Is this product self adhesive? Also what is the rating ie: 400 degree F direct/2000 degree F radiant heat? Also is heat and sound control like their other products they carry? ( Chris-Ohio, 08/07/2015 12:36 pm )
Hey Chris - With the exception of the large heat shield which is bolt-on all the other pieces of the kit are peel and stick.  The kit is made of different materials depending on location on the vehicle. Each area was considered and the appropriate rated material was selected by DEI. ( SlingMods )

Heat control.
This is a very nice kit, that I hope will help with too much heat in the cabin area. So far I’ve only installed the engine bay part as I will have to jackup the sling to get free access to trans tunnel. Only reason for not giving 5 stars is the mounting tabs were on backwards at the bottom of muffler shield, which I did not notice till installed. Accessing bolts after install was quite aggravating. For the cost a little better QC would be nice. After a few bruises It all worked out! I suggest you check this prior to install to save much aggravation. Note: If your going to install header/muffler that is the time to install heat shield, as it made it much easier than the video Slingmods has.

Nice Kit
A little bit of a pain to install but the results more than made up for the work. My wife's feet aren't cooking anymore and, combined with a Stealth exhaust, the cockpit is much more comfortable overall.

HEAT SHIELD KIT
had instruction but could have been better. Just a line drawing showing location would have worked. Center console install was okay but there are 2 forward pieces you have to kind of guess at. Put the main exhaust shield on first. The large piece that goes under the passenger floorboard is right in the way if you try to slide the shield in. It will not fit past the 2018 shield bracket. Older models may not have that issue.The main section that goes behind exhaust was the hardest part. Pretty much impossible to remove the spring on the exhaust. I worked shield above and around spring, However, on the 2018 there's a steel mount plate on the exhaust shield. The 2 brackets on the new heat shield that use 2 band clamps are useless. Bracket is directly in the way. You either have to move the mounts on the shield by making new holes or cut it off, So I cut off the bottom 1.5 inches of shield. That section was to thick to fit between the frame and other shield. I have not installed the piece that goes behind the ride command. Don't feel like ripping my center console apart.
