Has anyone used jet hot coatings on your exhaust? You can get black or silver coating. I thought it would make the headerpipes look better with aftermarket slipons.

Please post pictures if you have any, here is a link for more information.

Re: Jet Hot

I was just thinking the same thing the other day. Anyone done this? If not, I may be the first here shortly.

Re: Jet Hot

This subject bounce around the BMWRT.com forums awhile ago. Most who had it done claimed that it stood up and looked great. Do a search on Jet Hot and Jet-Hot on that forum

Re: Jet Hot

While we are on the subject, my dealer told me the headers were SS and polished out very nicely.. anyone tried this? If so, how did it come out? (maybe my winter project)

Re: Jet Hot

I have the headers and slipons on my 30 Ford street rod jet-hot coated and they are wearing very nicely. The color stays the same after an extended period of use. I know it isn't on a bike but the same should apply.

If the header is SS and you polished it you would still have issues w/ discoloration after a while.

Re: Jet Hot

I am thinking about doing the JetHot thing as well. I've just been putting it off until the winter comes around. I've head that it runs cooler & looks great. Definately worth the coin.

Re: Jet Hot

I've used HPC for ceramic coating on four of my bikes. I disassembled the cannisters so they could spray the perforated pipe and the insides. The pipes are cooler to the touch and are fairly maintenance free. The 916SP has had the silver coating applied since 1997. It still looks good.

Re: Jet Hot

;DI had the header coated on my BMW K1200RS and I'll probably have the Monster's pipes done here soon. I live very near the High Performance Coating (HPS) Chandler, AZ facility and I can just take the pipes in. They also do mail in work and they have a pretty good web site. There's also one other facility in the mid-west I believe. Based on my experience with HPC, I'd recommend them to anyone. The Beemer's header looks as good after two years as it did when first coated--very durable and a snap to keep clean.

Re: Jet Hot

So what does it cost to have the entire muffler system coated? Just a ball park figure would be fine.

Re: Jet Hot

You have to send them the parts (pipes in this case) and they prepare and coat them in whichever coating and colour you require.

Cost was only $110 Aussie peso's.

Good value me thinks! ;D

Re: Jet Hot

I got a quote from Jet Hot:

Dear Rick,
The price to coat the pipes and two mufflers with the sterling silver
finish is $225+s&h back. Add $20 for the flat black,blue or grey finish.
We'll need them here for 3-5 days plus shipping time back.If the parts
are chrome or nickel plated,add $40 to the total and 2 days for
stripping.I will send you our full information package to get you all
the coating benefits in greater detail. It will not turn colors like
chrome or stainless. Also it lowers under-hood temperatures by 40+
degrees, keeps the pipes 25% cooler and gets you 1-3% extra horsepower.
Of course, it's highly rust resistant as well(140x better than paint).
Because of that we expect it to increase part life be 10x or more.

Jet Hot also carries a coating called Jet Hot 2000. This coating runs up
to a temperature of 2400 degrees. The Jet Hot 2000 only comes in a flat
black,blue or grey finish and has a gritty texture on the outside. The
Jet Hot 2000 runs $25 more than the sterling silver finish and $5 more
per ft. This coating takes 2 days longer than the sterling silver
process.We suggest Jet Hot 2000 for set ups with nitro,turbos,etc.

All parts receive a 3 year unlimited guarantee that covers chipping,
peeling, cracking, discoloration, rusting. New parts also get a
lifetime rust through warranty as well.

Please ship your parts to:
Jet Hot Coatings
5602 Orchard Rd
Pascagoula MS 39581
or
1840 West Drake Dr
Tempe AZ 85283

Please note: Jet Hot 2000 is only done in the Pascagoula,MS location

I had the headers, S-pipes, and flanges done in 'Cermachrome' at Performance Coatings for about half that price.



I got them back a week after shipping them, they did a nice job and it was completely no hassle.

Thanks I'll check them out. Is it a problem to have the stock cans treated as well as the pipes?
