M4s will do that too when you drop the hammer and slap the throttle shut. Especially when the bike is cold and the mixture is richer.

Whatever Patrick recommends is how I would swing. Give him a call now and let us know what he says.

The guru has spoken then lol.

A basic map could probably be found on their website for download but a custom or even dyno tune would be best.

Hey funny story after you wrap your exhaust it smokes really bad for awhile, I pulled into a gas station with a bunch of harley guys sitting there and I parked in between their bikes, shut the bike off and smoke started pouring off. I really had to pee so I got off the bike and started to semi sprint to the restroom. LMAO two harley guys rushed over to there bikes and moved them while everbody else moved back I came out to a open parking spot on each side of me and everybody staring at my bike in apprehension, need less to say I hopped on it and rode away in a smoky mess, I guess my bike fit in with harley's for a day but now its not smoking anymore.

Will it do it when it gets wet everytime?

I hadn't wrapped mine but just trimmed the plastics. Im still melting paint since there aren't any baffles till the muffler.

If you paint it, its not near as absorbent and its n ot noticeable from just water really I painted that was the smoke effect. even with my factory exhaust wrapped it never really steamed from wetness and it wasn't painted.

I painted my intermediate pipe(went to a 4-D2's-1 system on the busa) and hadn't had any problems(hightemp paint; I didn't cure it like I should have in an oven.)

But I never thought about wrapping it...

It drops the temps significantly so if your fairings or anything is getting too hot its the way to go plus and advanced autoparts has the wrap and the paint in stock.

And curing it in the oven you normally wont have to due just put it on the bike and cure it by running thats what i did with straight high temp paint before I wrapped any exhaust.

I have such little room in the front though; the header was so close I had to push away my oil cooler cuz it was touching. But I think I'll be cutting more plastic away for the header; maybe I'll add some to the collector to prevent further poser point paint damage.
