brennaman Posted February 8, 2007 Share Posted February 8, 2007 I have a question about coating your headers. There is a topic now running about coating your pipes. I loved the pipes on the RT that E30TECH had, my only concern is the heat disipation. I saw on the link someone had posted (http://www.performancecoatings.com/) of the benifits, but it raised a question. They say the radiated heat was quite a bit lower. Where does this heat go? Does it spread the heat over a longer portion of the header to where it is able to dissipate much faster, and transfer it out the exhaust faster? Being the RT is aircooled, (primarily) getting rid of the heat is a big concern. For anyone that has had this done, do you see any increase in bike temp. in the summer, lower? The numbers they have for radiated heat from coated to uncoated are pretty large, that heat goes somewhere, and I would hate for the engine block to have to work as more of a heat sink than it already does. What do you all think? Phil Link to comment
