How well does that heat tape work? I have been thinking about tracking some down, but not sure if it helps

I just like the way it looks :excuseme: actually it is supposed (theory) to improve the exhaust gas throughput by retaining the heat in the gas - but who cares? It looks cool and has lasted about 6 months and is still OK.

I used stainless hose clamps to keep it in place and you put the tape on after giving it a quick dunk in water and that makes is pliable and sticks to the shape better. Overlap it by about half to a third as you lay it.

After riding make sure the tape is dry or it might rust the pipe.

Cheers

Really like your set up. I've ordered the same tank for my 93' 600. Where did you get the headlight? I'd like to convert my 4" side by side to an over-under like yours.
