I have my 2-1 coated and have never had heat issues. the Wrap causes LOTS of problems and will destroy your pipe.

The previous owner of my bike did the pipe wrap. I should have known better but left it on and one day I heard an exhaust gas leak and found the header had cracked behind the tank but I couldn't see or feel it. By the time I got home it had melted a hole through the side cover of the skid plate. Luckily it aimed that way and not through my tank!

Many upgrades have been accomplished on my machine, but adding a J&M CB has really been one of the best ones- because good clear communication has enabled me and my riding partners to really enjoy rides with less stress. Yes, we all have the same routes on our GPS, but you know how it goes...something happens, wrong turns, wanting to explore different trails, want to stop, help-I'm lost, stop to eat... all can now be done, through any canyons and trees for about 2 miles! All while keeping your hands on the bars, due to the push to talk (PTT) black button near the left grip. Small speakers in the helmet, as well as a small microphone near your mouth behind your full face guard. No batteries to worry about, and waterproof to boot. We did the FRS systems, all of which cut out at about 2000 feet within line of sight, and about 500 feet in woods or canyons.

You never know when good communication will save the day...or a life (extreme, I know). This mod was easy- and I chose the center of the bars because the typical J&M position sucked, being mounted on your left bar, where you had to be a contortionist to pull the PTT trigger, beside looking like something strange was mounted on your bike.

Happy trails! - Easybake

Tell more about the carbon fiber stuff... That looks so nice.

The 09 onwards glovebox marks so easy, I can understand why you did it, might do the same myself...

Explain myself!

So the "shade" for the Garmin 476C was made from this funky material that comes from Interstate Plastics in Kent, WA. It is very sturdy, .125" thick, plastic material, perfectly black, that has hard, eggshell-like outer layers with super dense cellular material on the inside. It does take forming, without any whitening, and holds that form well. So my shade is cut from flat material with a shear, then I formed it in my vise. It is held on by Dual Lock, a velco-like material:

http://www.3m.com/product/informatio...-Fastener.html

This shade WAS held on by industrial velco, but soon the wind buffeting and bumping loosened the shade so it was slightly flapping up and down (every little thing bugs me) so then I got some Dual Lock- amazing stuff that holds anything like cement- no flexing at all, but is fully removable- like to the tune of 5,000 times without degrading the material. Both sides of Dual Lock are the same, and it will only accept itself at certain angles- so stick it together, THEN attach it to the base object and whatever you are holding.

The Carbon Fiber-like material is Di-Noc : http://www.amazon.com/Black-3M-DI-NO.../dp/B0062A7M2G

I dont use the GLOSS- I use a kind of bare black finish (CA-421) that looks glossy at some angles, flat at others. So it is very tough material that is printed in a pattern that causes the texture to be kind of rough, but this is why it resists scratching so well- a lot better than the black plastic that KTM uses on their glove box. I started out as a novice wrapper, but now I could wrap your Grandmas reading glasses with the stuff... and I also use a 3M adhesive that helps the material stick in any weather- the stuff can freeze or fry- always looks good. Gasoline may loosen it for a bit, but it would tighten back up again- it is a type of vinyl actually- but more like tough plastic wallpaper. It is ever cuts or fails, I can wrap the whole thing over again... just takes minutes with a heat gun and a little knowledge of how to form it.
