Could you describe to me how this could possible increase your performance?hmmm not the responses i was hoping to hear haha. i doubt mine will ever catch on fire that sounds like a one in a thousand kind of thing,and as for the erosion...well i can hope not. i am still thinking im going to go ahead and wrap ut, i think it looks to cool and i am down for the performance increase.. any ideas on how much wrap ill need, like how many feet
Less than 800F or 427C at the cylinder.i am new to motorcycles but as far as heat wrap goes on exhaust and cars i think it is all the same, if you want to install it, the posts about weakening the pipe is true, and if you miss a spot anywhere while wrapping, it superheats that part that you missed and makes it more prone to cracking and puts more heat than normal in the missed spot, if you are looking for a way to keep the heat in and maybe give it a nice finish i would go with high temp paint. i dnt know how hot the exhaust gets they make 1200 ans 2000 degree paint in vaious colors, but prep is key so the paint doesnt heat up and just flake off
Yes, to the first observation. For the second part, depends where the coating is in relation to the sensor. IMO, ceramic coating is a poor thing to do to this bike.I would think the higher exhaust temps hitting the muffler would cause it to degrade a lot faster. Also can the O2 sensor handle the increased exhaust temps?
