Problem with Leo Vince on SM610

I bought an '06 SM610 with a Leo Vince full system. It's beautiful but the midpipe burns my boot when I move my foot back on the peg in corners.
The midpipe is straight for several inches before it slips into the muffler. The stock system midpipe enters the muffler at an angle, which looks like it would provide clearance for my foot.

I wrote to Leo Vince about this but they have ignored me, so the only solution I see is to put the stock system back on and maybe buy a slip-on that uses the stock midpipe. I really don't want to do this, since I like the full system except for its lack of clearance.

Any suggestions?

I suppose you could try wrapping it with black insulating header wrap secured by a couple of hose clamps. I've seen others do this on their 610's and depending on how you do it it can look good ...

...or try an aftermarket header guard and position it where you need it most. I just ordered one from BonsiaBrothers for the FMF header on my YZ and if it looks like I can make it work for the Husky I'll get another.
