Your absolutely right but - $$ ceramic coated would be a better choice although costly and it's hard to find someone that does it. I wrapped my last mav and it desinagrated rather quickly. (Volcanic header wrap) My 16 mav I just did troys council cover and I think that works better anyways. Take the cover off in the winter and it's warmer in there.For those of us who ride in wet conditions wouldn't the wrap trap moisture and cause the pipe to rust out??
