While still looking (and squirreling away $$ from the wife) at a new slip on, I wanted to tone down the giant silver stock exhaust a bit. I was planning on painting the heat shield when I saw a few had wrapped it with vinyl. Figured I’d give it a go and see how it turned out.
View attachment 4488 Overall, it was a fun process, and I had enough left over to do the front fender. Who knows how long that will last against road debris, but for now, it changes it up a bit. In case anyone is wondering, the vinyl (according to the seller) is 4mil thick. It was pretty forgiving, and with a heat gun, was able to work in without too much drama.

WOW. Totally changes the look of the stock exhaust. I'm digging it. Great job.

Thanks for all the positive replies. Just wanted to update the thread. I've put a few hundred miles on the bikes since this project and have had no issues with the wrap on either the heat shield or the front fender.
