Installed new shocks for my ride. A ton of adjustability from Ohlins. From the looks and shape point of view the OEM orange was brilliant. It was also very good when it came to performance. I needed to swap between comfort and performance whenever I wish and hence Ohlins . Just being seated on the bike make you feel the difference. Have not done the test ride yet. Sharing a few snaps.

DDH Studio has something similar at Universal Heat Deflector – DDH STUDIO

Captain Itch makes something similar in the United States. I'm pretty sure you could send him any design and he will hand tool it for you Heat Shields – Captain Itch – Quality Motorcycle Leather Goods & Motorcycle Heat Shields (captain-itch.com)

That being said I'm pretty sure you could take some photos from these web sites to any local leather worker and they could knock off copies pretty easily.
Thank you share the info.

These are leather options which I did not want . I wanted something rigid like the softail models have . This product is rigid ( metal + rubber coating underneath) and is a bolt on. Takes less space than this leather products. Cheers.

Make sure and give us a ride review after you get a few miles on them.
Did a couple of ride 100 miles put together. Did both two up ride and just a ride alone. I used the suspension in factory settings( got installed from HARLEY dealer). Rough road performance-the bike remains stuck to the road and not bouncing or no fear of losing traction(city and country side roads). The suspension take all the jitters and doesn’t not transfer all that to rider or does not unsettle the ride( 70 miles speed in highways with bad road conditions). The original setting needed no changes for me and pillion as the ride was comfortable , cornering in twisted road with two up and rider alone was inspiring. Braking and stopping worked just as good as factory street rod 750. I have not played around with any adjustments yet but all looks well set. The important feedback from road is noticeable in slow speed and highway speed( there is less unsure moments).If anybody asks me is it worth it I would say yes. If you ask me is Harley stock shock good the answer is yes but does not performance on rough patches like Ohlins( also comfort has increased by like 30 %- 30 % more time before you want to take a break).I have already ordered the front fork cartridge and spring as Im impressed with Ohlins. Cheers.

Will do and thank you
The front Ohlins suspension is not easy install. The dealer has had problems. The Harley street rod 750 front inverted forks are not serviceable and hence the bottom part of forks need special treatment. Heat it up to unscrew and the use a special tool to install the new components. The bike has been at dealer for about 2.5 months and they have not been able to fix oil leak.
Neither Ohlins nor the retails talk about this not so easy process. It’s a pain.

best AJ
