I just picked u a 2017 AT and wanting to mount my Giant Loop Siskiyou Panniers on it without a rack. The right side rest on the exhaust heat shield and I'm wondering if that is enough protection from the heat?

I have the 2018 Adventure Sports model and the heat shield is good but it does get hot to the point where I wouldn't be comfortable putting any type of fabric or material resting on it. I believe the heat shield is there to mitigate getting seared instantly but is still hot. Hope this helps.
