Default Heat bandage stuff.

Hello folks.
I was given a VF750 a couple of weeks ago and it's a bit tatty so I am planning on helping it aloing the ratting process. What I want to know is...

The Exhausts blow a bit so I am told, if I patch it and then wrap them with that heat bandage wrap stuff is that stuff fairly tough and long lasting?

I don't want to have to get them welded or replaced to be honest, I need/want to keep it as cheap as possible.

Cheers
Rich

Will probably be cheaper to have em welded mate...
heat wrap isn't a cheap option. Cost me a fortune when I had my Scooby manifold changed and wrapped...

Looks good tho... don't it!!

I will have a look round for some, it does look preeeety, bit wasted really on this thing. 80's oddity that it is.... Sqare section clip-on mini-ape bar things!!!
Freakish.

I have been told the cam shafts are dodgy on these things so I am not too hopefull of long life from it.

The stuff is really expensive but does work well at keeping heat in the exhaust and not on your leg

dont think it would stop a leak though? although it will hide a nasty patch

Used it on my lil bike and its great stuff
