Ceramic coated Thunder Alley

14 posts in this topic

I had my Thunder Alley ceramic coated, man it looks nice. Rode it for the first time since my collar bone incedent. Seemed a little cold blooded at first, ran really really crisp. Very pleased. Call Embee at 714-546-6907 ask for bruce or jeff. It looks like polished aluminum.

No pics, sorry spent the digital camera money on the pipe! Thats next though...

H-bomb Ya they did the end cap too. Actually, it does look a little like a pro circuit pipe now. At least a new pro circuit. Mine will stay clean and shiny ride after ride.

h bomb,

Did you have your stock header coated along with the TA? When they coated the TA, did they coat the whole thing or just the bare metal?

Guys,

What happens to the ceramic coating when the head pipe gets dinged? Does it chip off or does it flex and stay on the pipe? I dont think Ive ever really examined a ceramic coated part and Im interested in getting my exhaust done, but everytime I hear or read "ceramic coating" I cant help but think of a coating that looks like my coffee cup and envision the coating shattering off of my fancy exhaust at the first sign of roost. Please shed some light!

Thanks,

Mike
