CBF1000 battlefield modification

Got a new CBF1000 two weeks ago & I love it. Really love it. However, I've encountered a problem when using the centrestand. The exhaust heat-shield is a razor-sharp piece of stainless steel.

CBF 1000

I can't picture how you're doing this.    I have had a CBF1000 for 2 years , put 9000 miles on it and I always use the centrestand.  Never as yet had a boot problem.   I doubt that you're using the centresatnd wrongly , it only works one way.    Maybe worth taking a look at a 2006 or 2007 model maybe the shield is different.  Maybe worth thinking about grinding the edge down untill it is blunt rather than razor sharp as you describe it.     Either way , I can think of many reasons   [ apart from the fact that it is a cosmetic disaster] not to persist with a rubber a rubber pipe and cable ties in this location.   Happy hooning.
