Okay (for those that don't know) wrapping the exhaust does the following:
1. maintains hotter exhaust gases,
2. decreases density,
3. allows the exhaust gas to exit the system faster, and
4. lowers intake temperatures which equals more horsepower

But is this recommended for a track bike or is it worth doing on a commuter bike?

Depends. . .trapped moisture can "rot" your exhaust over time.

You can use s/s tie wire rather than hose clamps if you want. It will really pay off on a hot summer day. I have just been too lazy to do it myself.

we're talking about MH members here. . .not always "up to par" with how to maintain a machine IMO. I've used exhaust wrap for 10 years with no problems on any machine, doesn't mean others will practice good maintenance procedures. ALWAYS run the engine after washing/riding in rain to evaporate any trapped moisture!!!

i keep my bike in the garage, keep it clean & do most of the maintenance myself...if your bike sits outside i probably wouldnt do this since its exposed to the weather.
