Painting screw-ups!!!!

A quick question for the experienced. I just had my r-6 track-bike painted a few days ago. I fire up the bike for probably 10 minutes and the paint where the exhaust runs through on the bottom has began to bubble up. There is no heat shield between the exhaust and the fiber glass. Is this the cause of the bubbling? Or is it the prepping? Or maybe the painter needs to be using heat treated paint? thanx

sounds like the paint was not "fully" dry and the heat can cause it to bubble. could also be a prep problem......but usually with cooler weather like this....paint can take up to 3 weeks to FULLY dry....dry to the touch....is not fully dry.

the exhaust gives off an extreme amount of heat, the heat will bake that fresh paint if it hasn't cured enough. i've seen it bubble up on paint that was quite old too. when i put on patrick and brandons old plastics on my bike, the paint bubbled near my exhaust, and its been painted for a long time. just get some heat sheilding or some exhaust wrap for it..

i know advanced auto parts has the wrap, it's about $50 not real sure about the heat sheild material but, the wrap will prolly do the trick.

should be able to get wrap at any autoparts store.
