according to the earlier thread, the heat shield is used to protect your hand when you put the bike on the center stand... and that is right where you grab. And, even though BCRs don't have center stands, it is probably easier to leave it on during the assembly/manufacture of the bikes, than to specifically leave it off on the BCR ones...

point is, when you have the brackets, you can lift onto center stand with that, instead of putting your hand near the exhaust.
