Race BodyWork for 2008-09 R6

I've been googling alot... still have not confirmed...

Anyone know which brand bodywork will work with a stock exhaust system (08-09 R6) without melting the bodywork?

Trying to test and tune bike before spending the $$ on exhausts.

Thanks.

Thanks for the link. They got some awesome stuff - specially their keyless gas lids.
