    I had a 1x100 roll and had quite a bit left over.
    I didn't take off the exhaust to do it and holy crap did it take me forever.

    I plan on wrapping mine as well, on the bike. Would the exhaust wrap cut the heat down enough that you could do away with the silver/black shield over the exhaust and ride comfortably?

    Everything I've read in the two decades I've been riding is that exhaust wraps are not good for the bike. They cause the headers to overheat, possibly fail and prematurely corrode.

    Would it matter much on stainless headers?

    I am opting to not wrap them - for now.

    I keep hearing a lot of mixed things on the effects of wrap on headers. . Everything from "Putting them on will destroy your pipes inside of a week" to "They only affect titanium, steel is fine." and "just don't let them sit around wet."

    It's hard to suss out what is the truth with things like this as so many seem to be "old school wisdom" that may have had it's time and place but is now not loner relevant. . here's and example. . Is back pressure good or bad?
