Are your thigh still burning?
Not that i'm aware of. I've heard that keeping the pipes hotter is supposed to increase the scavenging effect of the exhaust and thus increase hp (like probably 1/4 hp on a good day). I mainly did it to reduce the heat on my legs. Also, my pipes were rusting and looking like crap.Aren't there negative effects from wrapping your pipes? Though some issues arise when doing that.
