DEI Titanium wrap , no spray silicone needed , no need to soak in water first , easy application . Lasts forever if you wrap it properly .

Wrapped my shotgun pipes with DEI off amazon. worked well.

Ran into a guy on a trip through Nevada who said that eventually the wrap will crystallize the metal pipes and cause them to crack....

Makes a little sense to me with rapid heating and cooling cycles to cause stress cracks in the pipes, however I think it would take a very long life of cycles to cause issues.

So, now the big question. Is it possible to wrap the headers on XCT without removing the pipes? Looks like a lot of close clearances... Not feeling ambitious enough to unbolt a bunch of stuff...

I did skim through it, but figured I would ask because I didn't see anything referencing the XCT. However, if you had to do all that on a steel-framed bike then it would probably be even worse for me.

Of course, I'm such a lazy bastard, I will work extra hard to find an easy way lol

death wrap!

sooner or later your pipes will die when wrapped. too bad they are not at least 304 stainless as it holds almost 3 times the heat in the pipe + would withstand wrapping longer. read where its very important not to overlap too much which will kill the pipes sooner. also its reported its impossible to clean. ti thought about wrapping under the heat shields as little is seen + when the pipes are done just buy another set

And I thought that I was the only one LILMAG helped out.... thumb up

There is a lot of info on this site, but you have to filter out the experienced persons..... who actually already done it, and not dreamt it.

:D

wrapped + dirty

once wrapped pipes get girty + oily they stay that way, kinda like a well used garage rag around the pipes. 304 stainless is by far the best exhaust material, wish someone made a 2-1 system for my hammer from 304 stainless.
