Over the 2019 to 2020 winter months I fitted a Mivv Suono low level silencer to my 2010 Tiger1050 so that I could fit a larger (from a triumph sprint) pannier to the right side.

The only problem is that on hot days of "prolonged enthusiastic riding" the underside of the pannier started to melt.

My solution was to buy a pre-formed stainless steel exhaust bend off ebay and chop it down to size. I actually bought 2, one bend at 45 degrees,m the other at 30 degrees, given they cost a whole 8 I was willing to buy both and compare. the theory behind it that was a bend would direct the not gasses away from the plastic pannier.

 The "end tip" of the silencer is stainless, and it unbolts so you can insert a muffler. It was removed, and the new bent piece was welded on.

the 30 degree was the one to use. I haven't used it for a prolonged full day in midsummer heat, but so far so good. here's photos





This last photo is older, showing the silencer as standard, before new bend attached

Was the Remus lower? A couple of inches lower might also do the trick.

hope this works pic is from my gallery,
Remus appears to be about 3" lower and 4" shorter,
I know there are a few guys with the same set up and Mivv Suono cans this is the first of the problem mentioned,
could be they've moved on

I used a Mivv silencer because they are still made new, despite the Tiger 1050 being out of production, Remus no longer list one, only for the Tiger sport. I had watched the 2nd hand sales for a silencer, but none came up and I was running out of time before spring and the start of the riding season. At the time the Mivv was the only one I could get.

Here's a photo with pannier off




And here's  photo with pannier on, I hope the bend I've added will divert the heat away from the underside of the pannier.










I pack my clothes in plastic bags inside my pannier as a precaution against rain getting in. At the end of a particularly long ride on one of the hottest days of the year I noticed that the plastic bag at the bottom of the pannier had melted onto my sweatshirt. Closer inspection revealed melting to the underside of the pannier.



I live in Scotland, a very hot day in the Highlands is still below 30 celcius, so I'm surprised it got that hot.

I'll only know if this fix has worked next summer, by riding in similar conditions to that day.

Looks very good.  There is BMW guy that makes the same type part for GS riders who apparently melt their cases all the time:

Yours looks much better in my opinion.

Personally think I would have stuck some of that heat reflective material under the pannier  :  https://www.demon-tweeks.com/uk/cool-it-adhesive-backed-heat-barrier-245864/

Hey! A few months ago I fitted a low mivv suono to my 2013 tiger 1050. I already have a full sized pannier for that side, but my original mounting position is so far off. Did you bend it in or completely replaced the right side?
