Default Re: Exhaust Wrap and Engine Cooling

Good point dodge dude, forgot to mention that lol

I do recommend cleaning, prepping & base coating the exhaust system thoroughly before wrapping, then utilizing the header wrap paint also offered which not only helps reduce the rust issue, but stops the prickly "fuzzy pipe" problem dead in it's tracks...

I should also prolly mention that you should shop around, the motorcycle wrap "kits" are usually really overpriced comparatively - there's often 50' rolls of 1" wrap for around $20ish on ebay, which is enough to do about three full length bike systems w/a bit extra for do-overs. Small, stainless hose clamps are far easier to use & more reliable than the ties they offer for it & the wrap paint is worth every penny, it even comes in assorted colors lol
