Header Tape - Where ??

Recommended Posts

I need some Header Tape or Heat Tape (not sure what it's called) for my son's BBR pipe that is burning a hole in his pants.

I've tried 2 auto parts stores and 2 bike shops - no go ??

TT store.

Be sure to get the 1 inch width, 2 inch is no good for bike pipes.

Any idea if you can get it in smaller roles? Just need to cover about 4-5 inches.

JEGS, header wrap!! I have used it on 550hp 350's and you can just about touch the headers when the engine is hot and running!!

get the large roll. You can generally do 2 bikes. It doesnt last forvever, you should be able to do a small xr twice with full coverage.

Wrap to past the carb area, for best effect.

I wrapped mine all the way til under the plate. It makes the area a lot cooler and made more power for me because I run a k&n off the carb right above the pipe.

It looks like there are dif. kinds - is that right? Is there a tape that sticks to the header and also a wrap that you need pipe clamps at the beginning and end of the wrap?? If so which is easier or better to use?

They shove it in a wierd place in the autoparts stores, and don't ask any employees, I was told that such a thing doesn't exist, and after looking in the headlight aisle I found four rolls of it. The 2in worked out fine for me by the way.

I like the 1 inch, better for curves and small diameter pipes. Glad the 2 worked out for you!

So the wrap does not stick to your pipe? You keep it on by the use of a clamp?
