Harley-Davidson heat shield with Studs

(8 customer reviews)

Available for Touring Models and Softails only. For Sportster riders, please email us a picture of our bike with the seat off so we can see where and how it attaches to your frame and we will let you know how to proceed.




This Harley-Davidson heat shield is made of beautiful buffed bridle leather, and has a ply of split leather (Suede) on the bottom, so nothing can scratch your motorcycle. Both layers are glued together with industrial cement and stitched around the edges.

If you have plastic heat shields on your bike, please remove them before you install ours. They prevent our leather to lay flat against the frame and you won’t get all the benefits of it.In order to install the crotch cooler you remove your seat, put the seat tang through the crotch cooler and tighten your seat back down. Pretty simple.

    These crotch coolers work! Riding in the summer heat down here in Vegas can be awfully brutal. Especially while sitting at a stop light while your thighs are sizzling like bacon. I’m a lot more comfortable riding in the heat with this crotch cooler. Easy to install or remove! The crotch cooler also adds some bling to the bike. For all the mods I’ve spent money on this is well worth the $$$. Highly recommend these crotch coolers. I have a few other products from the Captain and all are very durable high quality leather.

    Received mine; checked out YOUTUBE for installation (EASY) and finally got to ride and man-o-man…AWESOME!! Will definitely recommend to anyone who has an issue with the hot heat up their thigh situation!!! Not to mention how nice it looks. Only thing is I wished the studs had the same spacing as my seat. Thank you Captain Itch!!! I love my Crotch Cooler!!!!

    Love mine! Makes such a difference during our hot California summers. Mine is a few years old and I know it will last for a long time. High quality thick leather is used. I’ve seen the ones people buy off of eBay and they are like paper compared to quality of yours.

    No more sizzling thighs after installing the cooler! It took no time at all to plop it in place and re-install the seat. Matches the bib, seat, and saddle bags. Here in Florida it can get a bit hot sitting at a stop light and this DEFINITELY helps out!

    Heat shields shipped quickly, are very good quality and look great on my Heritage Softtail. A nice lady even called my to ensure my order was correct. Nice work Team Itch!

    Listen, if you are on the fence about buying Capt. Itch crotch coolers, you just need to purchase them! You will thank Captain Itch and this review I’m leaving at a later date by leaving your own review once you receive it. Hands down this is an amazing product and the talking stops there. The coolers are top of the line leather and look amazing on my bike! The turn around time was amazing. I ordered them on a Friday and they were at my mailbox on Wednesday. I also ordered the lever fringes and these things are not the cheap pansy ass, thin fringes that you see most of the time. Do yourself a favor and pay the money one time for phenomenal leather products. You will certainly thank yourself later. Captain Itch, Isabel, my hats off to both of you for the excellent customer service, lighting fast shipping, and most importantly, your superior quality of products. I appreciate this business and there are NOT many ol school cats like this around anymore who care about their customers like this. Thanks again!

    Captain Itch…… kudos sir, outstanding product, I no longer worry about ” fried thighs”, thanks to the heat shields. Quality workmanship, prompt shipping, easy installation. I highly recommend. I’d love a set embossed with Special Forces crest or crossed arrows . I just ordered the drink holder, certain it will be of high quality.

    Beautiful leather product at a great value. I have a 2006 Heritage Softail Classic and I measured the studs on the seat and saddlebags. They were 1 inch apart from center to center. That wasn’t a drop down option when ordering so I picked the 1.25 inch but put in a note that I would prefer them 1 inch instead so they would match my bike. Captain Itch made it to my specifications exactly and after installation it looks like it came right from the factory as the heat shield matches the rest of the bike perfectly. (Added the conchos as well) Thank you Sir!
