I've done header wrap and can say heat reduced by 50%. Do some search here on this forum and you'll find a lot of discussion about header wrap, temp controller, ceramic coating etc.

Same as above here, I've done the DEI Titanium header wrap and it cut down on the heat by at least half. You can also get the exhaust ceramic coated which by what I've heard, is WAY better than wrapping. Don't know because I have not done that. If I can find my camera, I will upload my pictures of my wrapping.

I have done both wrap and ceramic on more then a few renegades and outlanders and find the wrap works just aswell if not a bit better and its cheaper and you have zero down time!

Just make sure you wear gloves so you dont get metal fibres in your skin and put it on wet then I just run the bike till it dries some guys bake the exhaust.

Question Boots!!boots!!boots!!

You know this topic gets so much airtime on this forum that I think it is getting really old.IF everyone wore PROPER footwear (read offroad type ATV or motorcycle boots!) While riding we would not hear so much about peoples legs getting burned.Until really recently I was getting really pissed about how hot my outty ran.Busted out my moto boots, went for a ride and there is no problem at all whatsoever with heat on any part of me!!! Imagine that!SO- i will recommend strongly that all you people that never had a motorcycle or a pair of boots to go with it should really try this out!! It is the cheapest best fix for this issue around!Nothing wrong with going riding with the proper protective gear!If you don't wear at least a helmet ,gloves or boots while riding you deserve what you got coming !!!I really hope this does not sound harsh ,it is just common sense.Save your money and time- skip the pipe wraps, fan controllers,ceramic coating ETC ETC GET YOUR SELF SOME BOOTS AND GO RIDING- 'NUFF SAID

Sure wish I could find atv or motorcycle boots that fit. Heck have a hard enough time finding hiking or dress shoes that fit. If you know of a place that sells 7.5 EEEEE riding boots let me know. So far will survive with my Danner USMC hot boots.

Muck boots work well! Pick them up at Tractor Supply Co. or Southern States.

As I have said in the past. Go with the Temp controller and the heat problem is gone. No need for exhaust wrap or ceramic coating. I can not place my hand on the stock heat shield.

And in Oregon the ambient gets what? 80 on hot summer days

Come down south and try sand dunes when it's 100 -105F and lets see how you like your toe boiler boots.

I used to wear full riding gear when I rode motorcycles and sure the riding wind cooled down on hot days but with atv, mx pants, jersey and ankle high hiking boots make it doable on toasty 100F day at dunes.

Now back to topic, I have ceramic coating, double wrap and fan controller and I barely feel the heat radiation on my left calv at dunes on baking 100F sunny day. Heat shield is still hot enough that I can't touch it.

Next mod is to get fuel controller....

fear is temporary, regret is forever
