Heat shielding sloughed off

Recommended Posts

Accidently posted this first in the wrong topic.

Bike: ktm 990 adventure

went to go run some errands today and after starting up the bike, smoke started billowing out from underneath the right gas tank.

Killed the engine and took a look and a bunch of (what I assume) heat shielding had just fallen off onto the exhaust pipe and was burning.

I pulled a big chunk out and took pictures.

I'm guessing if I remove it, the bike is no longer safe to operate.(melt open the gas tank and turn into a big ball of fire?)

Is that so? What can I do?
