We will find out if Im going to screw up a set of $963 slip ons.

I believe that the melting point of carbon fiber is around 2k degrees. I have no idea of the temperature it will be exposed to in a powdercoating oven though.


Good luck, and keep us posted with pics!

btw, did some research, seems CF temp range is anywhere inbetween 250-350...


powdercoating could be anywhere between 300 and 400, maybe higher

Nevermind, the carbon fiber on clip ons..well...that's gonna have alot lower melting point.

I wonder what a sportbike's EGTs are. Gotta be at least 300ish if the coolant temp can get to 200 so easily.

why don't you drill the rivets out of the endcaps and take them off first?? you WILL ruin the carbon fiber. well not the fiber itself, but the gelcoat used to finish them will melt bubble and discolor.

you should be fine. the powder wont stick to the carbon and if its a can it can withstand at least 450 ish degrees. wich is plenty for powder coating.

If it can take the heat from the exhaust....

Just wonder how it will hold up with all of the vibrations from the exhaust and expanding and contracting from heat cycles..... only time will tell.
