Just my input, but as far as wrapping your headers, hope your bike is never in the rain or left outside. The water soaks in and around and clings on to the pipe until it rust. Give it about a year..... I'll show pics as soon as I find them of a set of headers after the header wrap was removed.... Just my advice, do what you like, just trying to help.

I DID repaint it first in high temp exhaust paint and heated it up to let it cure a little if that will help ?? pluss my bike don't see much rain. I'm actauly building this bike to stunt. As good as it's gonna look, I'm going to destroy it in a year or two and build it again anyways ???

We'll see if I have to sue it or not..there may be some other issues the exhaust I am planning. Good thing I have a back up kick ass exhaust plan anyway. Either way, it'll be better than stock. :ninja:

Well, in your situation, with the high temp paint and admitting your gonna be abusing the bike anyhow, I would say go for it. But in general, the exhaust wrap isnt theb est idea even though it looks sexy as hell..

There's a silicone spray that you use on the exhaust wrap and nearly every wrap package tells you on the instructions to use it on the wrap to water proof it and keep it from dry rotting but I guess that other guy doesn't read instructions or yes I'm sure it'll get water logged and rust your pipe
