Exhaust Wrapped
« on: December 02, 2020, 02:38:01 am »
I've been delaying this for quite some time but I finally managed to take off the exhaust and wrap it with some titanium exhaust wrap.

*DISCLAIMER* I am not a professional. I do not claim that I am doing these steps correctly. Please read and follow at your own discretion. Apologize in advance if I have any ill advised instructions.

Soaked the wrap
Clean the exhaust
Wrap once 1/2" overlap front pipe
Wrap once 1/2" overlap second pipe
Heat gun dry.
Spray with high heat flat paint 2000 degrees
Install bolts, nuts, & screws with dabbing a little copper anti seize
Install heat shields
Fire Up Bike

Looks good man, I've been wanting to do this as well. How much wrap did it take to do yours?

Looks great! I have the same color on mine, though I used dry wrap, which I was told was a little bit easier to use...

I used at least a good 25-30 feet of wrap because I had to cut mess up. I would recommend picking up some hose clamps with the screw tightening mechanism because the metal ties the kit gave me was complete garbage. My front wrap was not as tight as I had hoped for. I hope you do well on yours.

I bet, having it wet "maybe" only helped with the fibers not bothering my hands. *I was looking for a non-colored spray which was difficult.

It is looking good. How much it cost? How about heat resistance?
