    I don't expect to gain anything, but it does a good job of covering the paint that was burning off.

    Wrap, wrap, wrap, they call me the wrapper! (An old song by the Steve (guitar) Miller Band)

    heck yeah, wrap holds up better than paint anyway.

    Ever notice that after riding now your bike smells like a Chinese restaurant? My bike did for a few weeks after I wrapped my expansion chamber.

    What is that wrap material? I found that normal duct tape just sorta melts.

    oh yeah dude with that extra weight from extra tape your down hill performance will increase

    and with that little bit of extra wind resistance it makes for stronger safer breaking power

    so yeah a great performance inhancer plus chicks digg fiber glass

    no really though it wont make any difference other than acting as a heat shield

    mine's wrapped, too. mostly out of necessity. i spun the jug around so the exhaust comes out the back and without the wrap it's great for melting drumsticks...

    that first ride sure is stinky when all that crap is burning off (the fiberglass wrap, not my leg:))

    Nashville Kat, just google "header wrap." it's like 15-20 bucks a roll, comes in a few colors, and is available at a good auto parts place, or online.
