Headers will rust regardless of exhaust wrap, but they will rust a lot faster with wet exhaust wrap. Our engines get very warm, warm enough to dry exhaust wrap in a timely fashion. I definitely recommend titanium wrap over fiberglass, but if you get stuck in the rain or ride in the rain regularly just run the bike for a few minutes in the garage until the wrap is dry. If you really want you could have the bike in the garage running, and use a leaf blower on your bike to blow off all the water. Really simple if you have a garage/leaf blower or shop vac that sucks and blows!
Oooo, a leaf blower or a sucky/blowy shop vac in a garage.
