Heat blanket

Gotta' get some foil faced sticky back insulation heat shield stuff. Who sells the good stuff? I've tried some from Summit and it's junk. The adhesive does not stick and it just lifts up. Somewhere out there has got to be some good quality material. Anyone know?

I got mine. Boy do I ever got mine.

I got mine from JEG's. But it's probably the same stuff. Mine is made by thermotec, and I couldn't get it off if I wanted too.

I got mine from JEGs, too (used on my SV650 track bike). No problems with coming loose that I have noticed.....yet

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

What are you trying to stick it to? If it is your bare ass on that Tambo, I don't think it was designed for that application.

Try a contact cement like 3M 77 on the surface first and then it should stick well. You should also clean the surface first of any oil and grime.

B750 and B1078 RR both gone now.

For the extremely, positively last and final time Cagarooni that was not me nor my bare ass.

I have always sprayed a very thin film of silicone on the surface first to allow me to wiggle it into place before pressing it on. You saying I should clean the surface first? Maybe that's the problem.

I'll get the Jeg's stuff. If it sticks for Cag it'll stick for me. Thanks guys.

I got mine. Boy do I ever got mine.

Lee, clean the surface with acetone or something similar. You only get one shot to place it correctly, but it shouldn't be a cosmetic item anyway. That silicone you are using to let you position it is killing the adhesive.

After having further researched the situation I find I don't need it after all. The area in question was the belly pan on my Duc (I know, I know, but you guys are good). The front header warms the pan up pretty good but I can still hold my hand on it. Ditto that "cut out" I did. I was concerned about heat damaging the paint but after contacting PPG and Valspar I learned that the finish can take 220 F without a problem and it doesn't get that hot. Unless something's wrong with the nerve endings in my hand.

The silicone comment was a wise ass to see how many I'd catch. EM it appears you're the only fish in the pond.

This probably oughta' be moved Alvin. Not exactly MV.

I got mine. Boy do I ever got mine.
