Cortech sport saddlebags on a honda 919

I was interested in getting some sport saddlebags for my Honda 919 amd was wandering what everyone thought of the Cortech sport saddlebags. I was a little concerned about the exaust being right on the back of the bag. The exaust is stock. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

The stock heat shields should block enough of the heat to keep bags from melting.

I bought some a couple of weeks ago. I really like the Cortech tank bag (never leave home without it) and the Tri-Bag tail bag which clips into the saddle bags. I haven't used them since one of the straps was missing (it's on order). I think the foam will be OK over the stock heat shields. They got a bit warm, but I'm not sure whether it'll be a problem until I used them more. If it is too hot, I'm going to get some heat reflecting material to adhere to the inside of the bags. I know that will do the trick if I have to go that far with it. Their whole luggage system is great.

They work pretty well and even though I have C.F. SATO's the stock pipes with the shields don't get any warmer than them.
