Exhaust pipes near the footpegs on the RSV

Man oh man do my feet get hot on that damn thing. I was riding double sessions yesterday and I had to really move my feet around they were getting so hot. That's not good either when you're trying to use correct body position. I wouldn't move around on the bike like I wanted to because I was trying to keep my feet from starting on fire.

With the balls of my feet on the pegs 3/4 of my foot sits an inch over the pipe before it goes into the muffler.

Any suggestions? I suppose I can try the standard fiberglass wrap but I don't know how much that's going to help.

Wraps would help, but they aren't the best looking IMO. Is there room to put a guard over the pipe? Won't help all that much, but better than nothing. Other than re-routing the pipe, not much you can do.

i bet a thin piece of stainless with some air gap on both sides would work a lot better than most would expect.

That's what they use on the scrambler exhausts and those actually stay pretty cool. Good idea. Carbon fiber would be even better.

I had a titanium exhaust on my '00 GSXR750 at Daytona, and my boot was actually melting from the footpeg it was so hot from the heat. I HAD to wrap that exhaust with header wrap for that race and it worked very well. Better than holding my foot off the side around the banking at 180.

I would wrap or coat it. The exhaust on the 1098 is also pretty hot, but there is enough space that the pegs don't get that hot.

Now that this thread has run it's course, here's a bizarre piece of motorcycle trivia:

Does anyone recall how Suzuki obtained the technology to develop their expansion chambers & become the 1st to produce them on non GP bikes??

(Justin prolly knows this one)

I forget the rider's name, but there was an East German GP racer who defected mid-race by riding off track during a GP in Sweden. The rider had stolen the design plans for their expansion chamber from his team & either gave them or sold them to Zook.



Edit: Just saw Jason's post. After also looking it up, rider's name was Ernst Degner & he was leading the Championship at the time it all went down.

Did it have something to do with their flop rotary engine that was a marketing disaster?

I've got some industrial insulation that we use for welding heads. I can give you a piece. This stuff makes it comfortable to weld on 500 deg castings.
