I sanded it and painted mine black using high temp grill paint. I have an '04 so it's not as visible, but I think it looks much better black than silver.

I took my rear pegs off and polished that piece with mother's polish and it looks pretty good for what it is....

I took mine off and put the plastic cover back on and it does not even get hot enough to hurt it so I don't see where it would get hot on your leg.

I feel you! I thought the same thing but figured if it messed the plastic cover up it would just give me an excuse to get a carbon one. Its been that way for a few months now and I have had no trouble.

I took both the heat shield and black piece of plastic off of mine and replaced it with a Carbon Fiber unit that I purchased from mrgrn on this site.

Nice improvement - IMO!
