your suppose to paint the wrap with header paint. I read that after I wrapped mine and rode it a couple months. Does it reduce heat? I don't know, maybe. I always wear MX boots and never recorded temps before and after. Does it look like shit after a year? Yes. I think if I painted it, it would have lasted longer.( but it does look knarly, adds to the madmax effect...)
Only thing that really reduces the heat is a XR400 oil cooler.

BTW i think you can get the wrap and paint at Pep boys, Autozone etc..

Oil Temp Survey: Post your observed oil temps please.

That is the same taillight I use. It's very dim! I made a refllector out of a piece of an antifreeze jug trimmed to fit inside the lens and covered it with foil tape. After trying 3 different types of bulbs I found that Sylvania 3893(T4W) are the brightest and fit perfectly without modification.

People love the truck. I love the truck. Where is the goddamn truck with my wheels!

Just curious, where are you located? The number plate above the headlight does not look US-spec. The skid-plate also looks like an unusual piece.

Rob I used dot silver tape under the light and added another socket from a boat light as the brake light, not bad as it is now. Come monday I will start the l.e.d. change over.

Me too, is that sheep skin? Does it get hot? The skid plate looks alot like mine, but I added sides to it. I made mine from a sheet of aluminum.
