I've never used Jet-Hot but I have used Swain for diesel pistons, exhaust crossover pipe, turbocharger housings, and exhaust manifolds. The ceramic coatings did cut down the heat in the engine bay.

I sent the header and muffler to Jet hot today. The header will get the 2500 coating $260 and the muffler the 1300 $140 for $400 total. According to Jet Hot they tried the 1300 on the Razers and it burns off (requires 1450 degrees) so they now use the 2500. Due to timing it will take 3-4 weeks to coat and return. I will let everyone know the results when I get the exhaust back on. Hopefully no more melted parts.

It's not surprising to read that they reccomend this.
There are reports of Sportsman and Razer exhaust pipes glowing cherry red. Even if it's just the dull red you can see it in daylight. That could be anywhere from 1,000F-1,832F depending on your interpretation of the color.

I'd go with the 2,500F coating to be completely safe. No reason to do it twice.

Hot metal colors from one of the blacksmithing sites;

It doesn't really matter what the emitter is. Steel, stainless steel, cast iron, or the tungsten in your light bulb... the temps are about the same for a given color. Generally accepted colors/temps are:


--- --- Color

400 -- 752 -- Red heat, visible in the dark
474 -- 885 -- Red heat, visible in the twilight
525 -- 975 -- Red heat, visible in the daylight
581 -- 1077 - Red heat, visible in the sunlight
700 -- 1292 - Dark red
800 -- 1472 - Dull cherry-red
900 -- 1652 - Cherry-red
1000 - 1832 - Bright cherry-red
1100 - 2012 - Orange-red

What operating temp is it rated for?
Whose coatings does he apply... Jet Hot or a smaller name?

He does most of the racing headers in this area. You all actually mentioned I needed to find someone local I called after i wrapped mine. Mine is working fine now.
757-406-1681. He can answered your questions a lot better than I can. he was not fond of the jot hot coating.

I had my 2016 Scrambler mufflers done by Jet-Hot 4 weeks ago, they turned out great. I had my racecar headers done 15 years ago(Jet-Hot), and they still look good. Also had my Sportsman 850 muffler done by Jet-Hot in the color to match my quad. (Sold the 850)

Which coating did you put on your Scrambler and have you had a chance to evaluate the amount of heat reduction? I'm cautiously optimistic this may solve my heat problem and let me use the bike without worrying about it burning up in the process.

With dual exhaust on the Scrambler I don't have a heat issue. On my 850 Sportsman I had Jet-Hot did help heat issues. On my Scrambler I had mufflers done in the polished, good up to 1300 degrees.
