Does anybody know why a heat shield was added to the exhaust on the 04 model? Does this shield protect the saddlebag? Should we be concerned about melted saddlebags on our older models?

My understanding is that the 04 head shield protects the rear caliper from some of the exhaust system heat. When I checked this out on my newly aquired 04 ABS model the shield didn't look lilke it would be very effective.

Does anybody know anything different for sure?
