Removing heat shield, installing heat wrap (Bayliss test video style)

This is my first post.

I am going to be removing my heat shield tomorrow and heat wrapping my mid pipe. I have been searching around a lot and am wondering if anyone else has done this and would like to know how they like it. More importantly I want to make sure that heat wrap alone will be safe for the tail section/subframe. I plan on grinding off the heat shield mounts so that I can get a cleaner wrap. (I.e. I won't be able to change my mind later and reinstall the heat shield). If any of you have any experience I would really appreciate your thoughts.

Thanks

i wrapped it last year but left the heat shield installed.
i will replace the shield to a carbon version which i customise with a better heatprotection.
what i know is that without the old metall heatshield you will have no problems at all riding the bike. the old metallshield, in my opinion, got almost as hot as the pipe itself.
the new --ugly-- heat shield 2013 make more sense using several layer protectors.
maybe is use some of its parts to optimise my carbon shield. parts should be at the dealer at the end of march.

+1. Wrap holds the heat in the plumbing and acts as insulation and actually makes more instead of allowing it to dissipate.

Mine is wrapped like Karll's. I wouldn't permanently remove the existing heat shield myself. I think it helps, but wrapping that rear pipe is not a miracle cure.

Welcome to the forum!
check out this (developing) welcome thread for new useres:
the second post is about the exhaust wrap with some helpful information!

http://ducati1199.com/new-users/3704...on-thread.html

briefly: the wrap itself won't help that much, except if you are going >100 mph all the time. Keep the shield!!!
You might want to look into ceramic coating... but still, keep the shield!

cheers,

Phil

p.s. : i will take another wrapping approach, since one of the springs has chewed through the wrap and it is coming off loose now.
Thanks from Gunny Fitz and Mozzie

Ceramic coating the inner and outer and exhaust system is currently the best option.

also, it will be a lot easier if you remove / lift the rear subframe first (which i didn't in the beginning, major PITA...

Thanks for all of the advice. I think I will wait to cut the heat shield mounts off and look into ceramic coating the pipes.

I will be disassembling my exhaust and sending it to be coated by swaintech with their white lightning exhaust coating and putting some DEI heat tape on the underside of the current heat shield to help reflect radiant heat. I have a laser heat gun I will try and get some before and after as far as temps are concerned.
