To wrap or not to wrap.....
I picked up a DP Performance upgrade (Exhaust, ECU & Airbox) for my 2007 ST3 that I should be getting in a week or so. I am really thinking about wrapping the pipes with the black Thermo Tec exhaust wrap before having them installed. I have to admit that a big part of the decision is cosmetic...I really like the look of the black wrapped pipes. Of course, it would also be nice to reduce the heat coming off the pipes on those hot SOCAL days and possibility of gaining a pony or two is always a plus.
I've researched the threads and found some, like George in Dallas, who loves his but others are not nearly as convinced. I ABSOLUTELY don't want to do anything that would cause any potential damage to the bike.
I thought I would pose the question to the forum. Your thoughts on this are appreciated. As always, thanks for taking the time to reply.
