The heat shield is there to keep you from burning yourself because the pipes will get extremely hot. You really have 2 choices, put the shields back on and have cooler pipes.....or ride it like it is and be careful never to touch them.
You can try putting more heat wrap on them to see if it helps....but you've basically have 1500+ degree exhaust gasses running through them. There is no getting around that fact....
