The bottom exhaust heat shield in carbon for the BMW R 1250 GS replaces the original component using the original attachment points.
The focus is on the weight saving and higher sturdiness. For this carbon element that has to handle high thermal loads, Ilmberger uses a special high temperature pre-preg to avoid discolouring and yellowing. The carbon part is made completely of pre-preg material in accordance with the newest guidelines in autoclaves and in the next step – as usual for us – it’s covered with a clear plastic cover to protect against impacts on the environment. This plastic covering exceeds the customary clear lacquer covering in the protective effect, scratch resistance, and durability to a large degree. But the covering does not only score technically, it also clearly underscores the three-dimensional effect of the carbon structure.
