Exhaust Wrap on Outlander 1000R

I might like to wrap both exhaust pipes on my Outlander 1000R in an effort to "pipe" the heat out the pipe instead of allowing it to radiate in between the side shields and out on me.

Have you done this, and if so where there any ramifications? I assume if it is effective in heat reduction, Can Am would have done it long ago.

What could go wrong? Maybe too much heat in the exhaust side of the head and burn the valves or warp the head. Maybe the exhaust headers will turn red hot and fail from overheat. Maybe the muffler and spark arrester wouldn't like the heat. Maybe Can Am wanted the exhaust side of the engine in the "breeze" as the machine is being ridden forward.

Your advice and experiences welcome.

David

I've wrapped my G1 800 twice. Once with the DEI wrap and spray, and once with the titanium dry wrap. I do not mud and both lasted less than 2 years. I have finally given up on wrap since the Hayden fan controller keeps the temps bearable.

If you submerge it, you must make sure the wrap is dry before you park it or the pipe will start to look like crap pretty soon.

I did this on my last quad and would not ever do it again. Ceracote is the way to go and is not expensive. The wrap will hold moisture and shorten the life of the pipe.

you can try this on your 1000, i have it on my 570 and i dont have any heat problems.
my foot and left leg used to get really hot...no more
its a piece of aluminum bent to a 90 bolted on to the existing heat shield holes.
there is approx. 1 inch bent under the stock heat shield which catches the air and forces it down the exhaust pipe instead of on you.
i am assuming your talking about the heat on your left side?

Thanks for the informative posts. I did not know the downsides of wrapping in "fiberglass", but holding moisture is a problem. And there is lots of moisture under our ATVs as we ride through a creek along the trail.

Ceramic coatings make sense, but I may be too lazy to disassemble the entire exhaust system and send it off to an applicator.

The cerakote website does boast about slight increased horsepower due to the expanding and forcing exhaust gases out a bit faster.

I vote Can Am make a product improvement and ceramic coat their exhaust pipes from engine to muffler on all models 650 and bigger where heat is more of a problem.

I did notice significant sheet metal heat shielding around the exhaust pipe and muffler on my Can Am. I don't know if that is newer, or they have had that for some time.

Here is what I did....did the fan mod where you add a on/ off switch to turn fan on whenever I want and I put D.E.I.'s Floor and Tunnell Shield II on on the entire inside on both the left and right sides of plastics as well as under the rear left fender....now I don't have any heat issues and I ride 5-10 mph on trails mostly....here are some pictures

can-am will never coat or wrap their exhaust pipes and neither will any other atv manufacturer because it is not good for the pipes.

The first issue is they run so lean the pipes are stupid hot.
Get a tuner so it runs right first and that will cool the pipes down a lot.

Spawn: Thanks for your post. I think your approach is pretty good for heat mitigation and increased rider comfort (me!) I was just thinking if I could slow the heat down a bit at the exhaust pipes themselves it would help. I read several Can Am owners have used this DEI material to reflect heat back at the engine.

I also think I will have a manual override on the radiator fan to help blow out heat from between the plastic sides. That certainly makes sense. I don't want to run the engine too cold however. 200F coolant temp sounds about right to me. But the exhaust pipes out of the engine could be 800F or higher.
