    i have not tried it but would say no it wont work on the pipes. as for the slipon mufflers maybe but not the head pipes. as for the heat shields it should be ok. on my harley it gets hot enough to melt anything that touches the headpipe so i would say it is above 400 degrees and the regular powder would not hold up.
    when in doubt polish it out/ why replace it when you can refinish it

      I can garante it won't work
      I tried many times it will bubble up and peel off
      in fact high temp powder is the only one that I have had good results with and not for a long time
      normal temp on a harley bike is 600-700 riding it's higger
      only ceramic coat will work
      I've done heat covers with no problems

        Has anyone tried coating the inside of a header with ceramic for the thermal barrier and regular powder on the outside? Still may not work... just a thought.

            the customer came back yesterday whit the pipe
            the pc on the heat protector was completely burn and peel off the pipe and the muffler bottom part look like it was muffler
            the people at the bike shop did not leave an air gap between the pipe and the heat shield ? for the muffler i guess shooting right over chrome was not a good idea
            the customer was in a good mood believe me
            so i sandblasted all the parts and sand it whit 180 grit sand paper and shoot it high temp flat black asking him to make sure to leave an air gap between the part and build a custom protector for the bottom of the slip on
            something like this ever happened to you, what you think gonna happen next
