In this post, Lowbrow Customs teaches you how to wrap your Exhausts.

The guys of Lowbrow Customs are wrapping the pipes on a 2007 Triumph T100.

Many people use exhaust pipe wrap for looks, but it can also help you to hide damages, welds or bad chrome/rust on your pipe.

You will need three things. An exhaust pipe wrap (a 2" x 50' roll used here), safety wire and safety wire pliers (or hose clamps if you prefer to work with these).

They pulled the exhaust pipe off to make it easier to show, but you can do this operation directly on your bike. Some people use hose clamps to steady the beginning and end of the exhaust wrap. However, here they decided to use safety wire instead for a cleaner look. The safety wire pliers make the twisting job much more straightforward than doing it with your hands.

They wrapped tightly around the pipe with an overlap of approximately 1/4", following the manufacturer's directions. They chose to cover the pipes dry, even though some people wrap the tubes with the exhaust wrap wet to get a tighter wrap.

When they reach the end point of the exhaust, they cut it a bit long and doubled the end over to keep it from unravelling before the safety wiring the end of the exhaust wrap.

Once you finished wrapping your pipes, make sure to run the tube to allow the exhaust wrap to cure.

It is suggested not to do this in your garage or while riding as it produces a lot of smoke. Once it gets up to temperature, it will cure and you will be all set.
