Default Exhaust Fairing Heat Shield And Heat Wrap

I need to improve the fairing protection from heat of the exhaust and would like to know the best option/brand to do this task for heat shield and wrap.

there are 'heat blankets' for the fairing....

Thermal shielding your fairings is easy if you get the right material.
Check out thermal shielding on google and look for the highest temp stuff you can find. Look for the sheets or six inch strips that come in a roll. If I remember correctly the continuous rating should be in about the 1,500 + f range.
This stuff will have an adhesive backing with a layer of shielding material and a shiny outer metallic covering.
Step 1 is to clean the surface you want to apply the shielding to with alcohol but don't over do it. You want the surface clear of oils or waxes. A small rag damp with rubbing alcohol works just fine.
Step 2 is apply a coating of spray on high temp adhesive, not to much but enought to cover well then let it stand for a few minutes.
Step 3 apply the shielding material sticky side down on the area you need to shield and have covered with the spray on adhesive. Once these two surfaces touch they are stuck so be sure you have it all figured out before hand where it goes.
The six inch strips are easy to work with and that is what I use on all my bikes. If there is an area that comes very close to the exhaust double the shielding in that area using the same method as the first layer. The spray on adhesive is a requirement because the sticky back on the shielding material does not stick all that well by itself. With the combination of the sticky back and the spray on adhesive the shielding sticks on like howdy and stays there.
The shielding material cuts easily with sharp scissors and allows for some contouring where required.
Applied in this manor the shielding will last for a few years.
Have fun!
