Muffler Operating Temp and Respray
Hi, had a search but couldn't find any answers so here goes...
Got the usual white muffler problem on a 2009 Fireblade. Did what I thought was a reasonable job of cleaning and prep before lightly spraying with exhaust paint that says it's good to 800 deg c.
Did several gentle heat cycles to cure it, then took it out for a day.
Paint reeled off in a couple of areas when the exhaust cooled right down. Was fine when hot. I'm trying to work out if the muffler gets hotter than 800 deg c, or if I put too much on or what? Anyone done a successful respray... Don't really want to have to take it off the bike and start baking things!
