Kag,
Looks good! I have used the high heat paint on other things for several years now. You are right. It just seems to hold up (and cover) better than the other stuff.
Good idea about painting the pipes before wrapping.
I wrapped the rear pipe on my bike.
Been looking at the rest of the pipe ever since.

Ride safe,
M.R.

Kag, the Akra and the skidplate look good. And I like the idea of the second fuel filter, kinda like a "canary in a coal mine."

KAG, looks nice. You always go where no man dares. I like it. Let us know if there is any less heat.

Wrapping reduces the heat quiet a bit but it absorbs water like a sponge so wait till you do a river crossing, bike will look like it's run on steam.

I wrapped all my race bike pipes to protect the fairings and it's suppose to improve performance...marginal...just don't ride when it rains..

There is a silicone hi temp header spray paint that you can spray on the wrap. Keeps it from getting soaked and retaining water and helps it last longer.

Hey thanks for the tip. I will look into this. The wrap on other bikes been fine riding in all types of weather.

Edit: Looked this up and the product I used to coat the pipes and Akra, they have basically the same stuff in it. (Silicone ceramic base) The VHT product it appears has more of the Ceramic in it. Still will maybe get a can of matte clear for the wrap. But its good to know I coated the pipes and such with silicone ceramic.

I spoke with Chris at Rottweiler today about a few things I did and some of the up coming projects he has cooking that I was intersted in. Great guy....One is a slip on rear cat back pipe. Once I get the cat issue resolved I plan to maybe Ceramic coat the whole pipe. Until then I guess I will just be slumming it with my $30 wrap.

I have found

The bright silver ceramic coating to be a bit " stronger " than the flat black when it comes to scratching it off

finally got to make an honest comparison between my 1190R and the 990R I traded in. I go to Red lodge every year in July so I took the 1190 on the same roads as the 990 and my conclusion is that I prefer the 1190.
On the road it is slightly more comfortable and has much better range (225mi+) and passing power is great!
off road it is pretty close to the 990, maybe just a tad more sluggish in the handling, but the motor is fantastic. in off road mode it is very smooth and can be idled along without killing it. stock gearing on the 1190 works almost as good as my lower gearing on the 990? The best part is no heating!! the 990 would always run hot in tight stuff, the 1190 remains cool no matter what you what you do.
Just my opinion, but I can't see any reason to believe the 990R is the better bike, the 1190R appears to be the natural evolution of line. IMO it has lost very little (if any) off road ability and gained a lot on the road. The 990 is a fine bike but to claim it is better than the 1190 makes no sense to me.

Very well said and my thoughts exactly.

I'll drink to that. Had a chance to ride my old 990 recently. No regrets.
