exhaust wrap is an insulating fabric that you litterally wrap the exhaust piping with. from cylinder head to slip-on... the idea is that if you keep the heat of the exhaust gases IN the exhaust system, they'll race through the system quicker -> more power.
i think exhaust wrap's a fairly easy/cheap mod but it gets ugly pretty quickly if you ever get caught in the rain. ceramic-coating the exhaust will yield similary (if not better) results and is easier to maintain/clean. planning on pulling my headers this winter to send 'em off.

Thats my 600, it has been a track only bike up till now so I will keep you posted on how well the wrap wears, or how often it needs to be rewraped. I personally dont think it looks that bad!

Due to the "ugly" factor, I'd recommend ceramic coating. I had my headers done by High Performance Coatings in Chandler, AZ (they also have a facility somewhere in the midwest--check their web site). The cost was very reasonable (under $200 which includes clean-up) and they coat inside and out in a variety of colors. They look fantastic and seem to keep things cooler. . . a great inexpensive mod.

When I was a young lad I wrapped the cast-iron exhaust manifold on my MGB with some insulating wrap from Moroso...

it warped the manifold and was a total pain in the arse to get the manifold off the cylinder head... stupid me.

should be fine on tubing though.. it does look nasty however.

I bet that exhaust wrap look just as bad as carbon fiber after a while. Both of them I'm sure look like hammered s#$t after being in the rain, sun, or in the wraps case-the intense heat of the exhaust gases. I had just a wee bit bit of CF on my 750 and it came off almost as quickly as my girl's clothes when I brought the bike home.
