Decided to wrap my exhaust with 1″ titanium wrap. I have the Werkes cat delete and stock header. Keeps the heat off the radiator, motor, and my legs. Plus it it looks good in my opinion. Titanium wrap almost matches the bronze already on the bike. Hopefully it will keep the motor cool and make less work for the fan.July 24, 2020 at 5:26 pm #30844July 24, 2020 at 5:29 pm #30845
The header is extremely close to the radiator. Hopefully the wrap will keep heat from being an issues. I mag add a heat shield between the radiator and header pipe.

Originaly had the cat/ muffler delete on with wrap, but it is extremely loud. If anyone is in my area and interested in this delete, let me know.<img src="https://vitpilenforum.com/wp-content/uploads/hm_bbpui_temp/frtz6vz3y2m0eixuikhe6ycsad4c185r.jpg" alt="Cat/muffler delete” />August 4, 2020 at 8:46 pm #31103Some Vanilla BullshitParticipant
Can you post a picture of this where you can see the whole bike?August 6, 2020 at 4:11 am #31123August 6, 2020 at 4:11 am #31124August 6, 2020 at 4:13 am #31125August 6, 2020 at 4:18 am #31126
I might put the straight pipe on with the new SC Project muffler, but I like the way it looks and sounds right now.August 6, 2020 at 5:32 am #31127B.I.SavageParticipant
I always thought heat wrap looks awesome.
Never put it on though because some old school boys down at the strip told me not to unless I wanna crack my welds.
How it that with this type of bike, any concerns?August 6, 2020 at 6:15 am #31128
I like the look too. Since I put it on, the heat gauge never goes above 4 bars. I’m hoping that the reduced heat on the rest of the bike, engine, wires, radiator, my legs, etc., will be better for the bike in the long run verses replacing a fairly inexpensive exhaust pipe down the road.August 16, 2020 at 9:39 am #31294BradSpeedParticipant
<p style=”text-align: center;”>How did the bike run with the cat delete and the straight pipe out of the pre-silencer (black box)?
How much louder was it when you got rid of the cat? If you were going to estimate a % figure?</p>
Trying to decide which way I go with mine…. I have the same heat wrap, your wrapping job looks a bit neater though 😂👌

The cat delete and 2nd muffler delete makes it much louder than stock, but keeping the 1st muffler in place keeps it tame enough for me and my neighbors. The sound is also deeper and with quick releases of the throttle at higher RPM it will pop and crackle (which I like).August 25, 2020 at 12:25 pm #31486BradSpeedParticipant
My cat/1st muffler delete arrived today (same one you have pictured with the SC project slip on).
I installed it with my LV10 slip on, and HOLY JESUS it was loud. Did you end up installing the delete pipe with the SC project exhaust?
I’m going to take the delete pipe to an exhaust shop tomorrow and see if they can cut and re-weld the delete pipe so that it just replaces the black box muffler and keeps the cat.August 25, 2020 at 7:03 pm #31488B.I.SavageParticipant
About cutting it down, keep in mind the flange diameter on the front of the cat is smaller than the one on the premuffler side.
Premuffler is the same flange on both sides.
