Default Re: header wrap ok on an aluminum exhaust?

I have exhaust wrap from the header to the beginning of the expansion chamber on my SBP pipe. I am still breaking in my bike. I have taken it for a few ~20 min rides at WOT for a good bit of time. At first, the wrap would smoke near the header portion but now when I ride it seems not to smoke. The heat is now transferred to the area right after the wrap stops. On my pipe this is the beginning of the expansion chamber. I have my pipe mounted in the "up" position and it gets a bit hot on my leg if I wear shorts and ride. I may wrap the pipe all the way to the stinger and then cover where my leg touches with another material so my leg wont get itchy from the fiberglass.
