Remove heat shield for exhaust?

My buddy has an 07 600rr, he just installed a carbon fiber 2 bros exhaust. He didnt put the heat shield on the undertail or the right side heat shield. We were wondering if that was safe? As far as melting/overheating anything. Thanks guys

it's very possible that it could deform or discolor the plastic areas that it is closest to......

Some do remove it, some don't- some say they have problems, others say they don't. If it were my personal street bike, I'd leave the shield on.

U could always get an aluminum or heat tape to wrap the underside of the cowl with; but the section that was messed up on his is the very tip; not alot either... and he does alot of aggressive long distance riding too so that is worst case scenerio.
