I was thinking about wrapping my headers with some header wrap and was wondering what I should be looking for. Length needed? Good brands?

The reason for wrapping is because I want to hide my headers. i just cleaned them, but fear that they will rust again. Paint is out because id doesnt last for a long time (Like more than two years) from my experience.
Thanks

All exhaust wrap is about the same. I'd recommend getting black instead of white. 1" or 1.5" is easiest to work with. Soak the roll of wrap in a bucket of water before installing it. It's easier to work with when it's wet and less of the fibers will get on you.

and when you're done riding, don't use a pressure washer on it.

Before you wrap it you want to clean and paint it, then cure it buy running the bike. then wrap them. When I get home I will post some better photos of the new syst.

Cool thanks for the info. Does anyone know about how much I will need. 15Ft? 25Ft? It is only stock headers so i am guessing it wont take as much as duals.

Also how do I secure the ends. I have seen hose clamps and metal ties, but I have also seen it tucked under itself. Which method is best/easiest?
