How to Wrap… not RAP!
- Using a shallow pan of water, moisten wrap to make it more pliable.
- Secure one end of strap in a vice or similar and start the other end at the top of the header.
- NEXT STEPS ARE FOR MULTICYLINDER MOTORCYLES (or if you plan on having joining pipes at the base). START AT BACK AND WORK FORWARD IF YOU HAVE A SINGLE SO THAT LESS DEBRIS GETS CAUGHT IN THE WRAP
- Wrap moistened material around the top as close to the exhaust flange as possible while still allowing flange to move freely.
- Use a stainless strap (provided) and continue to wrap down the header keeping the strap tight and slowly walking towards the vice.
- The overlap should be a little bit less than half the width of the wrap. As you get to any bends be sure to keep an eye on all overlaps to make sure there is no bunching.
DON’T BE AFRAID TO UNRAVEL AND RETRY IF YOU ARE NOT SATISFIED!
- When you have completed wrapping the header to your satisfaction, cut the wrap at a point that it won’t be seen (underside or inside of header)
- Use the remaining Stainless strap to secure the end.
- Thoroughly dry wrap, setting in a sunny area or near a heat source. Expect some serious steam to come off the pipe regardless for up to 10 minutes when first started or after rain.
