Greetings, all!
Anyone had any experience with using thermal barrier coating on new pristine exhaust pipes to prevent bluing?. I just finished talking with Jet-Hot and they indicated that their oven baking process @ 700 degrees usually results with a "golden hue" on chrome pipes... Hmmm?!? Aside from the minimal performance benefis to be gained, I am more concerened with not having blued pipes on a restored Brit bike. Any experience to share? My fellow riders say: Why bother?, or just use exhaust wraps to cover up the ugly...
Hmm!

REgards!

No experience with that particular product, but I do spray the inside of new pipes with hi-temp paint. It helps avoid bluing, assuming the carbs are correct and you don't sit at idle for long periods (or revving the motor to impress your friends.)

I'd rather see blue or yellow pipes on a bike that's ridden compared to one that's not

Have a word with Gary E, I believe his pipes are ceramic coated internally. I had my 2-1 and mega ceramic coated but this was external so sadly doesn’t help.
