Default Exhaust Wrap

Hey guys, I've been contemplating wrapping part of my exhaust (RPW Slash pipes). The pipes are discolored beyond repair, so I was thinking about wrapping part of them with the black exhaust wrap. The last foot and a half of the pipes I can bring back to chrome with the polish I use (Blue-Job, great stuff). I was wondering if anyone had any pictures of wrapped exhaust on a V92. Or if anyone can make on look that way with photoshop or something. Thanks y'all

Not your pipes but they're wrapped. Go with the new titanium wrap. I will be if I redo them later.

Nice, I think I might go ahead and wrap them. I just wasn't sure how it would look on the bike, but I think I'll give it a shot. Thank you for the picture

Ghost , just take your time and wrap as tightly and uniformly as possible. Use more wrap and more overlay on bends. Have someone help you by keeping the roll untangled while you wrap and wear long sleeves and latex or rubber gloves or you will be itching for a week! Hope this helps.

It does, thank you. Someone told me to wrap from the tail end to the front, so that the overlays aren't facing the wind..? All the wrapped exhaust I've been seeing online is from the front to back. Anyone ever heard of this?

Do not start from the rear! Start at the exhaust flange and with the second wrap you need to tightly cover the complete end of the beginning of the wrap, this will insure wrap stays tight. Wind will have absolutely NO bearing on the direction of the wrap / or, affect it in any way. When you get to the end of the wrap leave an extra inch or so of wrap to fold under before clamping off. also keep in mind after you fold over the end, and your wrap is complete, you want it to end on the back side of the pipe for a clean look.

Thank you for the advice Lilmags. I'm planning on doing it over the colder months, so I won't get separation anxiety too bad lol. We will see how she turns out

I finally got around to wrapping the exhaust. I think I did ok for the first time wrapping an exhaust. Got the ends off by about 1/2" but it ain't a big deal
