Heat wrap the entire exhaust?

Is it worth the extra effort to remove the plastics and heat shield and wrap the exhaust behind the heat shield to help with the heat on my leg? I have a 2016 1000 xt and it gets a tad warm on the left side. The right side doesn't get hot at all. I was planning on putting the reflective dei tape on the inside of the plastics on the left side and at least wrapping the slip on, but was curious if I could justify the extra work of removing all of the exhaust to wrap it.

Have not done it my self, but know a few guys that have. Yes it works great for absorbing heat. But you run the chance of your pipes rusting out prematurely due to the wrap holding moisture when the pipe is not hot. I have seen pipes rust through cause of this on snow machines.

Rusts really nice if you run in mud.

You won't need to wrap if you use D.E.I. Heat and Tunnel II material. I have it on both sides of my XMR and do not have heat shields nor have I wrapped my exhaust....Another thing to consider adding is doing the "fan mod" or hayden fan controller. I also did the "fan mod" and I don't have any heat issues.

Yeah, I saw your thread. I was trying to get something done on this tomorrow because we are riding Sunday. No one around here sells the tunnel insulation. I bought some tape. May just try that first. The heat isn't unbearable, I am just being a little picky. lol

Do the fan mod, it will take longer to find a switch then it will to do the mod. I turn on my fan when the coolant temp hits about 180 degrees or the first time the fan comes on and leave it on while I'm riding. Coolant temp will stay under 175 degrees even on the hottest days. I have a stock 1000 XT that got hot on the left as well but now that I can keep the fan going and air circulating the heat off the exhaust is no longer an issue.

YES, YES, YES, Wrap your exhaust if you want your bike to run cooler. I have the fan mod and I wrapped the exhaust. Hands down the exhaust wrap did more than the fan mod.

Other recommend removing the thermostat, fuel programer and a high flow slip on. There is also some expensive radiator fluid you can use to help with temps.

If I were to but or owned the new 1000 motor first thing I'd do I'd a slip on aftermarket pipe and fuel controller..that'd help alot with exhaust heat..then if still needed I'd wrap or ceramic coat the header

i think its more your cvt exhaust blowing over your engine exhaust and right down to your left side leg. take your panel off and take off the elbow that forces it over the exhaust pipe and to your leg, put panel on without the elbow and drive it, you will see what i mean. you have a 2016 machine like i do and there is no reason why we should have to be wrapping pipes and doing fan mods??

Well, just started the tear down and I agree with skeeter... Dumb on can-am's part for this to be a necessity. I have 3 header bolts left and I will finish pulling them in the morning when I can lift the bike. Skeeter, did you remove that elbow for the cvt exhaust? Is that the one that everyone snorkels up to the top? As far as the mechanical difficulty, this isn't terrible compared to some things I have done. It just sucks that it needs to be done on such an expensive bike. I plan to completely wrap the exhaust, heat tape the inside plastics, and potentially do the fan mod if someone will tell me where the relay box is on my bike. I may wait on the fan mod if I have to remove my front racks and plastics.
