Muffler wrap

Question. Are you supposed to also wrap the silencer at the end of your pipe?

No

Thanks Dirty!

Re: Muffler wrap

And leave a few inches of the header unwrapped where it mounts to the jug. Otherwise you get really high temps there, which you don't want

A cool trick to keep the wrap from fraying, is to take some super glue, squirt a fat line across the wrap where you want to cut it, let it dry, then cut down the line.

Re: Muffler wrap

Doesn't super glue release with heat ?

I would think a couple rounds of wire tightly wrapped would do , but ??? (edited)

Im not sure but I used some to glue a wire to my coil to keep it from getting ripped out. Still on there after almost 6 months

I have wrapped to the flange. You want your header and divergent cone hot so that it speeds the gases moving along.

If wrapping the header to the flange causes overheating, you should pull timing and adjust jetting.

Re: Muffler wrap

Yeah, I thought the gases were supposed to exhaust at a faster rate, to prevent overheating?

Re: Muffler wrap

The super glue trick is just to prevent fraying ends, not to stick it to the pipe. That shit will fray the second your scissors touch it. Then you have fuzzy ends sticking out of your clamps.

Wrapping it to the flange creates a shitload of heat concentrated right near the Piston, and at the thinnest part of the pipe.

I've personally seen seized engines and cracked header pipes on many different types of bikes. If you know how to dial everything in and tune for the added heat, you should be fine. Just giving some advice I picked up from other people's misfortunes.

Personally, I've only used header wrap on bikes to avoid burning drumsticks.

Re: Muffler wrap

I fold the frayed section under the wrapping at the beginning then at the end fold it over at a angle under the hose clamp. I soak my wrap in water before wrapping the pipe to keep the fiberglass dust to a minimum and wear rubber gloves. After it’s wrapped run it until the water burns off.

That^ is about the only time I'd consider using wrap , too .

Re: Muffler wrap

Did it cut down on noise,PD?

I have no idea , yes or no . I don't care for the looks of wrapped exhaust , so I haven't wasted my time on it .

I've always thought that it would hasten or help advance any rust that might be there .

As far as 'quickening' the gases through the pipe , I'd polish and coat the inside of the pipe .

Re: Muffler wrap

I'm gonna leave it alone. I like the look, the sound, my little guy says he likes to Tomos also. Hope he gets used to Bravo in the future... 8)
