running with no heat shield

I own a 82 ohnda express, and recently just lost the heat shield. IS it bad to run without one?

thanks, Nate

Don Pflueger /

heat shields are designed to direct air flow around hot areas on an engine block. the air flow usually comes from a fan mounted to the flywheel, or just out side air as the engine runs and the bike is being ridden. its not the best idea to remove them.

I think it is for protecting the driver and not for the sake of the ped.

Don P is right in other cases.
