Exhaust Question

I have an 07 R1 and after some riding the exhaust heats up the seat not just a little but to the point that it is almost unbearable to sit on. I have been told to heat wrap the entire pipe or to get an aftermarket, not sure what direction to take. Thanks

whatevers affordable bro. wrapping will cost(if you do it yourself) maybe 60-80 bucks cuz that wrap is a little pricey. an aftermarket if you can afford it would be nice cuz its something you might wanna do later on anyways and then you can wrap the aftermarket exhaust b4 you install it. its better to have your exhaust wrapped than not becuase of the exhaust flow characteristics. when the heat is held in the pipe it allows for better exhaust flow out the exhaust. which can lead to power gains in itself and also keeps ambient temps down.....or whatever...

You have several options.

1.Buy a full exhaust system and get rid of the catalytic convertor to cool it down.

2.Have the full system ceramic coated (Jet Hot, etc.) to make it even cooler.

3.Exhaust wrap. If your pipes aren't stainless they will rust out.

4.Quit riding in jeans/shorts and buy a set of leathers.

Frankly, the combination of 1, 2, and 4 are how I would go if I had the cash and planned to do trackdays in the summer.

Cost about $185 to have my full system done a couple years ago.

I talked to them before I had mine done. Actually, let Brock get it done for me because it was a prototype system and he wanted to see it and make sure that everything still fit after coating.

There may be some local companies too but Jet Hot has been coating exhausts and lower underhood temps for years. Seem to have good customer service.

I don't think he is referring to the moisture accumulating. I think he is talking about how much hotter the metal on the exhaust gets and it ends up being detrimental. I would stay away from heat wrap and go with the jet hot coating. Something that doesn't trap the heat inside.

true, heat wrap holds the heat inside the wrap to where ceramic holds it inside the pipe
