You should also try wrapping them off the bike, cause then youll have more room to work with.

definitely wrap the exhaust off the bike. wrap all 4 pipes separately then over lap the 4 to 1 pipe onto the 4 pipes using stainless steal ties to keep it all in place. Make sure you soak the wrap before you wrap the pipes too. Ive attached some pics.

Nobody brought up that you can wrap headers going to a turbo to spool it sooner.

First off wrap them back to front chose the three you want to wrap just the primeries then on the forth one start as far back as you like i personaly started at the clamp that held on the silencer so i could remove it if i ever wanted then wrapped forward. Secondly do it outside if possible and off the bike becouse your gonna wanna do it wet and it just bleeds nasty shit dont forget a mask its the one time you wish you would have listened becouse you will have black snot for two weeks if you dont gloves also if possible or your hands will itch like crazy.

Always wrap from the silencer end towards the exhaust ports, this will ensure the overlapped joints allow water to run off rather than running under the overlap. this will help mild steel headers to last somewhat longer. I use stainless lockwire and lockwire pliers to secure the wrap. You can get a much tighter fixing with lockwire rather than the stainless rape ties. As has been said soak the wrap before applying it, and once it is all done and the exhaust refitted, run the engine up OUTSIDE and let the wrap burn in. If you run the motor in an enclosed space you will choke yerself silly as the wrap burns in. Also make sure you do not have any little oil leaks from either the sump bolts or the drain bolt, as the wrap will absorb the oil and smoke like fuck when you fire the bike up.

I'm wrapping my exhaust soon with titanium wrap on an all black bike. It'll be sick!

okay, I ride my bike as primary transportation as it is my only vehicle, so what happens to the wrap if I ride in the rain? and would the greater daily mileage dramatically increase the corrosive effects of the wrap on my pipes?

you should find the person who told you that, and hit them with a hammer.
