    What does the muffler protector do?

    The big shield that goes over the stock exhaust. Does this really serve a purpose????

    Because of the catalytic converter..Japan does'nt want you to burn your tongue if you decide to taste the pipe!!

    Seriously, it's just keep you from burning your fingers if you were to touch the pipe...the cat does get a little hot and transfers that heat to the pipe.

    Thats what I thought - I took mine off a while ago.

    I was going out on a limb and thinking maybe it keeps the exhaust hotter or something and that would help since I removed my cat just like dumping the third cylinder does.

    Probably also keeps people from burning their hands by touching the exhaust. It is amazing how much cooler it is now without the cat.
