Exhaust pipe question

#1

Post by popspan » Thu Apr 29, 2004 1:55 am

Description: can someone give me a part number for a good set to try?

I runing a set of stright drags on my Panhead (here is a pic http://home.earthlink.net/~popoleospits/Panhead.htm )
I got them from J&P cycles and they suck, they bubbled up like 2 minutes after I started it up the first time and they dont fit well at all. I like the straight drag pipes, can someone give me a part number for a good set to try?

Anyone Spray paint the insides of their New Pipes to keep them looking new a lot longer?Works well
The 30" over Springer Pan in the picture gallery, I have done this to about 3,000 miles ago. Pipes still look good. IMHO
I use the VHT =Very High Temp 1500* Paint & Spray them & rotate them to cover the insides well. I just finished doing the insides of the Dual Exhaust I'm fabbing for my Flatty.
I have tried the Kreems for this, but for $20. not impressed.

Billy, Sounds like a winner , never tried it myself.
Guess you got to do it with new pipes like the Dyna coat, or can you scrub them real good and then spray?
....How about spraying high temp over the Dyna coat? kinda belt and braces...but think it would hold. Haggis

Haggis, I never used Dyno coat ???
Does it work Good??
I have only used the product from "Kreem" for New pipes & for the $20+ bucks, I can do much better
with the VHT Spray Paints in New Pipes.
When We finished building the 30" over Pan, I did the pipes & they still look good. 3,000 Hard miles ago.
Have done the same on the Shovel chop next to my Flatty & they still look new also & many more.
The Shovel chop has taken a first place at the Rat's Hole show in Daytona, Fla.
The Pan has yet to be in a show. He's too busy riding. ;D

I used Dyno in mine. I don't have enough miles on them to tell you how well it works. The stuff is pretty brittle. Seems to me it's a good insulator if it stays in there.

PanPal,Thanks, That's what I thought..
If you're running a "VeryHot" cam with a lot of overlap, there is a brief period when the exhaust actually sucks "In" during overlap. This is only very brief, but you don't want to suck in a little piece of that coating.
Again, the Cam must be very a Hot Rod Grind for this.
And it would be a very remote chance of this happening.

Billy, Pen Pal,
used Dyna coat a few times never had any problems, but it is brittle once dry, but unless you are pounding on the pipes I dont see it braking loose after youve burnt them in....word of caution ...thats some nasty shit, wear a mask when applying it and drying...and for gods sake dont breath any dry powder in...Haggis

Haggis,
Thanks for the warnings!! Surprised
I think I'll stick to my painting the insides. There's more than enough toxins just in the paint !! Man, modern technology comes with a price.. If you're not careful!!

I've got 400 miles on my Paughco two into one 3 piece squish pipe and their fishtail muffler. Inside, of the 3 piece, is painted with regular paint. [Not spray paint. Poured regular black paint in that I had lying around and then dumped it back out. Nice heavy coating.] The first couple of times I only let the bike run for a couple of minutes to "burn" the paint. There is absolutely no discoloration in the chrome. My old pipes were burnt blue, black and gold. They were the cheap ones....
If I were going to do this again, I'd use a pint of hi-temp paint and pour it in the same way.
