Heat: Anyone Done This?

Back in the racing day it only used to be that nasty burnt looking white heat tape that frayed and looked like a bag of ass on racebikes. Always hated the discolored look and swore I'd never do it. And then along came this......

Looking for any member who may have gone this route and can show pics of what it came out like. Anyone??

Not on the 1199' but have both of the R1's wrapped and painted black, looks ok... Not planning on it for the 1199 because I spent hours polishing the termi system and now its been through a number of heat cycles it looks awesome with the welds and bends... Works tho, the R1s were very good..
Thanks from Gunny Fitz

I was never a fan of it but was curious if anyone did it to their Duke. Perhaps you can post some polished pics for us Bowdy? Thx for input, and for the PM from other great members too! Good info for sure!

I used a different brand wrap (DEI Titanium Exhaust Wrap), which I then painted black with Thermo Tech paint. I am still on the fence as to how it looks on the Pani. As a result, I have only wrapped the header loop under the seat, while I decide if this is the direction I want to go.
Thanks from Gunny Fitz

Used a buffing mop and did it before I fitted it to the bike, took hours and looks better still now its been through some proper use, will take a photo of the bike this weekend whilst its stripped for prep...
