Melting above exhaust?
So I was cleanin' her up the other day and noticed that there seems to be a melted or broken piece of heat wrapped plastic right above the exhaust (pics). I'm not going to act like I know what the hell it is, but I don't think its always looked like that. Any insight on what it is or if it will be an issue that should be looked at?

It is the exhaust flapper valve motor, which connects to a cable that goes to the flapper valve in the exhaust, near the rear tyre.
I removed it permanently the other day whilst fitting Termi slip-ons, as per fitting instructions.

I saw that yesterday when I was cleaning as well. Have only had my bike less than a week so I am still learning what all the components are!
