Default header wrap ok on an aluminum exhaust?

I researched this and found one thread but they only talked about the stock steel exhaust.

I was wondering what you guys think about wrapping a SBP tuned pipe with header wrap. I plan on wrapping it completely from the header to the tip. I am wondering if there are any cons to this. I was thinking that wrapping it won't let the heat escape and it might damage the pipe since it is aluminum or maybe I am thinking to much into it and it will be ok.

I want to do this because I mounted it in the up position and don't want to burn my leg or components on the bike like the clutch cable or magneto wires.

Thanks for your help guys.

P.S. I am almost done with this bike! I have been building it from the ground up for the last 4 months. I have been paying a lot of attention to detail. This thing is rock solid. I really appreciate all of your help and advice.
