Exhaust inulation blanket

Has anybody got any experience of this and where I can get some - My lowers had melted near the headers and along then side nearest the exhaust. I would prefer not to lag the pipe but insulate the lowers - See http://cgi.ebay.com/EXPORT-ONLY-1-x-...d=p3286.c0.m14 for an example of the stuff I was thinking about. Would contact adhesive be the way to go?

Just be careful that there is adequate clearance between your pipe and the lower. I used a foil type insulator with double sided tape backing which worked really well. It was pretty thin and worked like a charm. It was rated to 1000 degrees. Never burned through again.

Bought the stuff on Ebay and it was pretty thick - say around 5/16". Repainted the lowers and reinforced the mounting points with some glass cloth and resin then stuck the mat in with resin also. Will find out if it works at MSRH on Saturday. Hopefully not burst into flames.......

Highly recomend this stuff - Real hot day at MSRH and the lowers were the coolest thing on the bike (really) to the touch. Absolutely no chance that the paint will blister with this insulation fitted but it may have the effect of increasing the temperature inside the fairing?

If you have titanium pipes you do not want to wrap them.
I've got some self adhesive heat sheilding you can put on your lowers in stock. It works really well.
