    I'm looking at wrapping the exhaust on my Nightster. Has anyone here done that to theirs? Or would I be better off powdercoating the pipes?

    Am looking to do the same thing on my Thruxton. Wrapping is the way to go from my earlier research, and it's only about $40 at Amazon. No advice for you, really, but please post pics when you get it done.

    I just did this the other day...my advise- PATIENCE & a buddy to help
    (I had niether lol)

    This is what I bought. They offer white & tan as well.

    Youtube motorcycle exhaust wrap..several vids on it.


    If you want to go with the coating route, try JET-HOT.

    Its a better alternative than powder coating & wrapping.

    Our local PD'er stop doing exuast & headers as few come back with bubbling/cracking issues.

    Good luck.

    I have done my bike and many others. I worked at a harley dealership for years. Don't powdercoat them. wrapping them takes time but looks great.

    I took off my exhaust, after cooling of course, brought them into my bathroom and did them in there. It's much easier off of the bike. You'll need to wet the wraps, do not soak them, just wet. I hung mine in the shower. I cut the wrap into two equal lengths and let hang. I did one pipe at a time. start at the exhaust port and metal clamp it on there after a few wraps. then continue on. The wetness will allow you to wrap it vert tight. Clamp the other end when your done and let dry over night. Install next day and start bike. do it outside of the garage beacause i do belive that the initial "smoke" is quite bad for you. not to mention it fuckn stinks. when its done smoking, your done.

    thanks and agreed do not use the piece of shit clamps they give you. buy ones from the hardware store. Also be carefull where you put the clamp head on the exhaust port, remember you have to put the half inch nuts back on to your exhaust studs. just make sure they are not in the way
