Here Kyle wraps the pipes on his 2007 Triumph T100. Many people use exhaust pipe wrap for looks, it can also help hide damaged pipes (such as those on a bike that was in a wreck...Kyle..) or to hide welds or bad chrome / rust. It is also useful to protect your legs from high pipes and excessive heat.
I pulled the exhaust pipe off to make it easier to show but you can do this on the bike as well. Some people use hose clamps to clamp the beginning and end of the exhaust wrap, but I decided to use safety wire instead for a cleaner look. The safety wire pliers make the job of twisting much easier than doing it by hand. I wrapped tightly around the pipe with an overlap of approximately 1/4", following the manufacturer's directions. I chose to wrap my pipes dry, though I know some people wrap the pipes with the exhaust wrap wet to get a tighter wrap. If you choose to wrap your pipes wet, simply soak the header wrap in a bucket of water and follow the rest of these directions. Once you start your motorcycle and the pipes heat up, it will dry out the heat wrap right away.
When I came to the end point of where I wanted to wrap, I cut it a bit long and doubled the end over to keep it from unravelling before safety wiring the end of the exhaust wrap.
Once you finish wrapping your pipes make sure to run the pipe to allow the exhaust wrap to cure. I would suggest not doing this in your garage or while riding it as it smokes like hell. Once it gets up to temperature it will cure and you will be all set. For you curiosity, there are still plenty of tips & tricks waiting for you on this modify motorcycle exhaust tutorial.
