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.)

Might ring up Jeff Crumpler @ Precision Powder Coat 321-242-2268 here in town. He is the owner and has done alot of motorcycle exhausts

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.


Now let’s all have a beer beerchug

I coated these 20 years ago with something commercially available at the time. It was a white milky liquid that you coated the inside with and then ran a blow dryer through the pipes for 10 minutes to cure it. I think it was from Cycle Shack. It might be off the market.

BigTwin, Harley Davidson used to sell an aftermarket product that was for this very thing. It was a off white color liquid that had some sort of abrasive sand mixed with it. I coated my pipes then put them in the oven at about 200 degrees, then coated them again. Pipes are still shiny chrome after thousands of miles. About two years ago, I was into another restoration, but couldn't find the Harley stuff. Someone told me that the Kreem company made something similar. Sure enough, I found it. It is just like the Harley stuff, except its blue. Same consistency, same abrasive sand like feel. I did the same routine, coat the pipes, then in the oven, and coat again. This bike has hundreds of miles, pipes still look new.
I recommend it.

I used that Harley stuff, think it was called Dyno, some years ago on a Victor pipe. Didn't bake it after application, wasn't called for in the instructions. As I remember, I shot heat down the pipe with a heat gun, for quite some time...but did apply it per the directions.

It looked like it was snowing behind me for the first 5 miles or so, blew all that crap out. Worthless, for my application anyway. I don't remember if it was a new or used pipe (probably new), that may make a difference?
