    Exhaust wrap

    Hi. I have a hyosung gt650 (say what you want, i dont care, i like the bike) and the front pipe off the engine has gone a bit shitty looking as most header pipes do. I an thinking of wraping it with the exhaust wrap tape but am a little concerned as to whether or not it will retain too much heat within the pipe.
    Is this something to be concerned about or am i over thinking it all?

    Cheers.

    That does look a bit shitty...!

    What about cleaning it? I've seen it done with oven-cleaner (no idea how it might affect the longevity of the part though). It doesn't look like access is much of an issue on your bike.

    Have thought about dunking it in an electrolysis bath to see how well that works as well... or even just painting with black gloss exhaust enamel.

    Why did the Hyosung rider insulate his exhaust?

    So he didn't burn his hands when pushing it.

    ...Okay those jokes work better when it's a car.

    What about:

    How did the Hyosung rider triple the value of their bike?

    They wrapped the exhaust and filled up with petrol.


    Seriously though. Heat in a pipe is a good thing, it helps the exhaust gasses flow better. Using exhaust wrap can have the consequence of having poor grade steel pipes rust underneath it, but that wouldn't seem too catastrophic in this case.

    Best method - have the pipe ceramic coated by Competition Industrial Coatings. But any of the things you've said (paint) are fine. Spend as few dollars and as little time as you can.

    Oven cleaner works on two stroke pipes coated with cooking oil, it doesn't touch rust. A wire brush and a polisher will, but it'll just rust again if left bare.

    Glad you like your bike. Don't ride another and it'll be the best bike you've ever had.

    Nice jokes bro...

    This bike is much better than mynold zzr250. I will upgrade it again 1 day so it will do for now. Just want to tidy a few things up. It doesnt matter what you ride or drive it always looks better being tidy.

    I think i might go for the wrap as i have a roll of it at home that i was gonna use on the zzr

    I cleaned my ER-6n front pipes with pool acid.....brushed it on, waited a few minutes and then rinsed it off with copious amounts of water.....brought them up lovely.....will still need a polish though but got all the crap off them and they looked worse than yours do to start with

    I wouldn't be too worried about it mate, not everyone is a rich prick and can buy a newer/better/prettier bike whenever they like

    Many many years ago when I got my L class (pre R days) I had to ride my bunky Yamaha XS250 for several years because I couldn't afford to upgrade

    Personally I'd be hesitant on using the wrap for the corrosion reasons stated above but then given the low cost of the bike and the fact you are trying to keep to a budget and already have the wrap anyway I'd probably be inclined to use it but maybe try what Sword said clean them up 1st and maybe a can of exhaust paint before wrapping them to at least slow down any chance of corrosion

    And what does riding a Kawasaki say to the world?
    You should follow the OP and spend less time worrying about what the world thinks of the brand of motorcycle you ride.

    On topic... wrap the pipes, it'll be fine. Follow some YouTube videos on how to do it right. You can unwrap it every so
    often to check for any oxidation.
    Spiral out, keep going...

    wrap brap fap

    there's worse bikes out there than a hyosung and some of them are hondas, at least you're getting what you paid for
    Do you remember the good old days before the internet?

    when arguments were only entered into by the physically or intellectually able.

    Just wrap it
    If the pipes get fucked, you should be able to pick up replacements on the cheap

    As for bike choice, everyone is different. I love my baby CBR, does everything I need it too. But I still owned a GPX 250 first

    Cheers for the advice. As for the haters, im not interested in what others say about the bike. As mentioned before you get what you pay for, i accept this and dont expect my bike to pull away from an R1 or 1000 fireblade or ZX10R nor does it have the sex appeal of a fat boy or soft tail. This is only a lams bike and for the moment it is purely an instrument to get to and from work with some weekend fun. Haters are always gonna hate, doesnt matter what you ride or drive. We see it all time on facebook with ford vs holden, toyota vs nissan and so on. Without the haters there would be no improvments on things. We would just settle for the same mundane vehicles. Keep up the good work.

    Don't bother defending yourself. F%ck the haters (although what Loud said was amusing). Any bike is fun to ride, even a postie bike can be fun and those that disagree tend to be nothing more than posers who own litre sports bikes yet have chicken strips almost as wide as the tire.
