The material is blasted so as long as there are no thin spots that would blow through you should be fine.

I'll check those.

I'm interested as well. Did you also coat the muffler? I know the plastic fender over the muffler gets pretty damn hot. Its very uncomfortable to my wife when she rides.

The AFX FX-39 is the best helmet and is eyeglass friendly. Its a dual sport so the windshield flips up and down so you don't need goggles.

Thanx for following up so quickly sco. My plan around the thanksgiving to Christmas holiday is to do some clutch maintenance and universals on my prop shaft so when I have the bike down I could pull the exhaust and send it out. Thanx again.

Oh one more ?, like I was saying the exhaust has baked on mud so to what degree would I need to clean it or do I just pull it off and send it out?

how much room do you have between the exhaust (the part that is causing the heat issue) and the frame or plastics on the ATV? If you have a bit of room then I would suggest wrapping the exaust with a thermal blanket / paper then surround the blanket with thermal tape to secure.

The thermal blanket or paper (about 1/8" thick) is good up to like 2200 degrees so that should give you the protection against the heat transfer. Morgan PLC / Thermal Ceramics makes this product. Another option might be welders blanket as a base surrounded by thermal tape. Just reflective heat tape won't make that big of difference.

I'm suprised that a ceramic coating will make the exhaust cooler as ceramics transfer heat quite well but those that have had it done should know. My experience with ceramic coatings just keep the exhaust from rusting and make it look nice.

Knock off heavy debris, you'll have to send it or bring it to me. Ceramics can spread the heat out , and keep it in. Check out the wild cat, no heat shields, looks nice. Rzr heat shields, looks like poo.

With my half an engineering degree and one thermodynamics class I was thinking the ceramic coating would dissipate the heat in an more even manor. Basically not collect in that one 180 deg bend.

Thanks for the heads up kemblkr.

Sco as I think of the coating (will do but haven't done my homework on it) how will it hold up to getting submerged in an ice cold Creek crossing in the dead of winter? Basically I'm just wondering what down side it may have.

The heat on my bike is there it isn't a major issue. A lot of guys are wrapping their exhausts. I would like to try something more permanent and different.

I've got similar materials on the headers in my f150. They see 1200-1300ish egts without issue. Truck is driven year round through puddles snow drifts, and even the ditch. We have yet to have any reports of coating fractures or porosity.

The first coat in the exhaust above and on my headers is a barrier coating. The silver ceramic is very rich in aluminum which is where the chrome like appearance comes from. Some ceramics are also used for abrasion resistance, so not just heat.
