Don't know what this is but it looks alot like Jet Hot, which is a named brand for one of the high temp coating companies out there. I have seen great results from Jet Hot in the automotive world and wondered if you guys have any first hand experience? Espicially considering the heat our pipes put off...not to mention the looks. Definately considering it, espicially after seeing this one. What do you think?

Re: Jet Hot coating (or equivalent) on pipes (galaxy)



I had my pipes Jet Hot coated, but this bling-bling was not an option at the time. Mine turned out flat...

While providing lower external temps, don't these coatings bottle up the heat inside the pipes which would be bad for c/f mufflers and having to replace the packing inside sooner?

Re: Jet Hot coating (or equivalent) on pipes (galaxy)

I had mine "Jet Hotted", but it wasn't Jet Hot ....... why can't I remember the damn name of the place?


Anyway, they were ceramic coated. Not chrome like above, just a flat silver.

With regards to heat, I really can't say I notice a difference.

What I did experience, though, was a major BITCH of a time getting them back together after the coating was applied. I don't know if the pipes moved around some during the coating process, or it was simply the thickness of the coating that caused the problem. After I went back and honed out the interior of the female connection, it went together but was still a PITA.

Hindsight being what it is, I wouldn't do it again.

i suppose that's true, but the gasses while hotter, would also have a higher exit velocity so i suppose it's be a wash for exposure to the muffler packing?

Re: (s4strati)

I did the MH pipes, it would be fare to say the underseat temperature was lower with the ceramic coating and they look way cool, exhaust heat wrap does the same thing but looks but ugly on a bike.

It does however pin up after a short while from stone and grit blasting and they turn very dull.

I have read the heat wrap does trap in heat pretty bad and it can hold in moisture and corrode the pipes fairly rapidly over time. Does look kinda cool if done right. Jet Hot is a ceramic, not a chrome and I think they pretty much have a good guarantee that their product wont change colors or anything. Strati was right about expending the gasses. I think the Jet Hot is also fairly shiny but maybe not as much as that black 999 above. Still would look better than plain old pipes I would think. I also just wrote to Jet Hot to see if they could do the pipe portion of the slip on as well so the pipes would match all the way to the muffler.

Jet-Hot coated mine a flat black its there 2000 coat it's rough like 40 grit sand paper but it keeps the heat from burning my leg.

The whole exhaust was about $200 to coat. I will do it on my next bike also.
PITA to put back together is right.

dipdm, you actually had yours done by "Jet Hot" and it was a PITA? Wonder if it's the thickness of the material or if the pipe get's warped or changes shape very slightly in the process? That sucks. Was it still worth the effort?

Re: Jet Hot coating (or equivalent) on pipes (galaxy)

I had jet hot do my '83 honda 1100f headers and am very happy with it . they coated inside and out so the pipe is insulated from the hot gas. but the pipe is also insulated from the cooling air.is the metal pipe cooler or hotter after this mod.???? i don't know.

I should qualify that statement, on a naked bike for street use it looks like a wonnabe IMO

No, that looks trick, I saw a picture with a Monsta that had it and it looked very out of place.

Superbikes can wear it no prob specially with CF wheels

I never did see a Monsta with it so I really cant say. I really didn't know about the look that the exhaust wrap would bring at first, but now I think it's okay.
