I see some exhaust systems taht have a "tape" or cloth wrap that would seem to be a substitute for heat shields. Would someone give me a product name or description so I might investigate and learn about it.

I ordered some of that wrap from Summit Racing. Much cheaper than what it is going for in the Custom Chrome catalog.

Actually, Summit Racing sells it on e-bay, that's where I got it from.

You might want to search a bit online.

This site seems a bit biased, but something to consider: http://www.centuryperformance.com/heatwraps.asp

For the first day or so the heat tape will stink while the bike is running.
It can rot if ridden in the rain (maybe just some brands)
On the Xlforum someone was pointing out that under his heat wrap the exhaust had begone to corrode thru the metal.
