New to Motohouston

Hello,
I am new to this forum and it looks to be very lively.
I am searching for info on heat shields, exhaust wraps, and the best way to protect you aftermarket kit form heat damage. I am just trying to determine if it is better to wrap your exhaust pipes and place the blanket heat shield inside the plastics or is this over-kill.
Thanks,'
Desert Rider.

I ride a 06 CBR1000RR and have melted many aftermarket lower fairings.



After lots of trial and error I was able to mitigate some of the heat.



Wrapped the headers, heat taped every square inch of the lower fairings and trimmed a little off the rear near the pipe.



All is good now and I hope this helps.

That's exactly what I did.
I wrapped the exhaust pipes and place the blanket heat shield inside the plastics. Worked like a charm... I had to do it because I put a 2008-2010 race plastics on a 2006-2007 bike and the bally was too close to the pipes making the paint to bubble up.
BTW, Welcome to the forum

Welcome to the forum! This stuff here works like a baws!! My race belly pan was burning and the paint was scorching. Slapped this stuff in the belly pan right next to the mid pipe and hasn't burned since.
