    Default Ceramic coating on the exhaust

    Decided to take my Reinhardt exhaust off since they were really faded and had developed a little road rash from a miscalculated turn plus they are hot as hell!
    Ended up going with a ceramic made by Cerakote. Rated for 2000* so I should be good there. Just put them back on the bike this morning and had them go through the curing cycle.
    They look very nice and hope they last a lot longer than the original paint did straight from Reinhardt.
    Had JPC blast and coat them. He did a nice job form me. I can not believe the difference in the heat the pipes generate or I should say the lack of. They run very cool compared to before.
    Here's a before and after pic. First pic is old pipes... second are ceramic. Ceramic is a bit darker.

    Looks great Moe - in theory there's a performance benefit to keeping the heat in, supposedly it helps with exhaust scavenging

    I like them a lot. I've thought of doing exhaust wrap under my heat shields to curb some of the heat. My headers are ceramic coated in and out and so are my shields but its still hot as a mofo.

    Moe, look good. Makes the old look almost purple in tint.

    That would only apply if the pipes were done in & out... Moe did the heat shields. He's just trying to keep it cooler for him.

    I did that... didn't notice any improvement.

    Moe - is it difficult to check and fill you oil with those pipes?

    Look VERY nice Moe!

    Were the pipes Anodized before? I know they (Rinehart) Anodize their tips, and that's the reason why they turn purple after time.

    I really like black pipes!!! VERY NICE!!!!
