is the ceramic coating something found workdwide?

I would like to paint my headers or coat them with something or even wrap them...

anything to not look rusty

cheers
Ceramic coating = Thermal barrier coating = keeps heat in.

This particular color , Bright ,

the pipe is bead blasted , sprayed with powder , baked in an oven , then put in a polisher ,

my understanding is all other colors dont have to be Tumble polished ,

The coating is suppose to be very durable and long lasting , time will tell

There are other colors available , Black , gray , silvers , gold , etc . most are a Matte finish.

Got bigger jets and was going to put them in but I almost hate to mess with it. Haven't checked the plug yet. What say you.?
ALWAYS check plug. Each bike is different. There is no Sliver Bullet when it comes to jetting a carb. Once you find a good set up, you should ALWAYS try smaller and bigger to learn if there is a BETTER set up.
At 13k alt. my bike would be a little rich with a 50 pilot and 142 main.

Just Curious

I was curious about those running windscreens. Do you get the feeling you might end up smacking your head on the top of the windscreen? I've been wanting to add something to my stock bike, but aren't sure which way to go.

Big gun exhaust evo r series s/o

Does anyone have one of these and an OEM stock muffler that you could take a picture of side by side. I'm interested in the pipe bend.





Or if you had a side shot like this one.
