gonna try it out. been catching my darn foot on fire the at the track. just to much heat coming up from the exhaust. my foot was actually numb and the ball of it was so damn hot it hurt after like 18 laps. lost out on a 2nd place finish in the 20 lap solo gto race cuz it hurt so bad.

once i get a chance to ride it ill let you guys know how much it helps.
just with a heat gun it was around 80 degrees cooler just idling.

One of my buddies wrapped his R1 headers and all. He noticed a difference in the amout of heat being produced and said his bike was running a bit cooler too.

I'd seriously like to know how it works, too. I'd like to wrap my R1's pipes the same way. It feels like the bottom of my legs are exposed to the desert sun in even 90 degree weather. Stops lights are brutal. Where did you get the exhaust wrap?

It cuts out about 70 - 80 % for the heat and it will not leave a mark if you accidently hit with you leg..Don't ask how I know.

Cheapest place to purchase is at a speed shop or online at Summitracing.com
The only drawback is it can cause header blowout, if wrapped too close to the head. Been using it on my Jeep headers for years.

Actually, that's why I said "speed shop OR Summitracing"

why would it cause a blowout? heat buildup?

Uncoated tubing (ceramic) can reach high enough temp to become soft & blow out due to pressure against the walls, usually at the bends. The insulation holds the heat in, causing higher exhaust temps even at the outlet of your exhaust. Most header companies will void any warranty if the header was wrapped.

i got it at kragen i think. 1" wide and 50' roll. was like 30 or 40. used a little less then half in the mid pipe section.

I have been pondering having jet hot coat my whole system inside and out. its like 250-300. just dont have the money so im hoping this works just as well. its just the heat from right under the rear set that just got really bad with the motor wide open the whole time in 95+degree heat.

I jet hot coated (inside and out) on the 749-S and noticed a huge difference in the radient heat coming off the pipes and can. So much so that my bum thanked me in person.

Biggest advantage of ceramic coating, besides heat reduction on the outside, is that most bikes can see a 2 -3 hp increase throughout the rpm range due to better evacuation. My BMW has picked up 7 hp since the exhaust was coated, but some of that was a custom mapping on the PC3.

How much was the coat? Who did it?

I had my midpipe ceramic coated, mostly for looks, but I did notice a difference in the amout of heat that was produced. I'm planning on having my headers done as well.
