I go a high level system for my Ural. It is made for the bike, but there is a danger of a pillion's leg getting burnt if not careful, so I want to buy some of that fibreglass strip that can be wrapped around the pipe work, to insulate from injury.

My Dad would be buying it and bringing it over at crimbo, so a high street stockist or a mail order shop would be great, just not somewhere obscure as he won't have much time!

Thanks.

buy it off ebay - you can get lots quite cheap. Search for exhaust wrap.

you will also need stainless wire or stainless cable ties to hold the ends of the wrap so it doesnt come undone.

ALSO A TIP - if you are going to go off road a lot, or there is a chance the exhast wrap will get wet, spray it with 2,3 or 4 coats of exhaust paint. This helps seal it and stop water soaking in. If you dont paint it and it gets wet a lot, it will rot and fall apart.

be careful, insurance companies dont like it if you put accessories on that are worth more than the bike!:happy6:
