Pictures of coated Pipe.

Here's some pictures of my pipe after ceramic coating from Precision Powder Coating in Virginia Beach, VA. Cost me $85 but I wanted it fast.

Which stats would you like to know? Just got it back and haven't mounted it up yet. Waiting for the header wrap as I'm going to do both to insure I don't DNF any more events.

I assumed that you had the pipe coated to reduce radiant heat. So I was wondering what the coating company you used said their coating would do

Pipes look great
I've wrapped all my four stroke pipes for reduced heat and protection, works great
Wrapping the pipe does cause it to tarnish bad
Let us know what the coated pipes look like after a few months

I have a set of headers Jet Hot ceramic coated on a 514 Ford I built and using an infrared heat gun the header temps dropped from about 500 degrees to 280. Sold me!

Re: Pictures of coated Pipe.

Well, it seems like it hasn't solved my problem. I coated the header and mid-pipe and also installed a CV4 blanket under the tank. Well, was charging in my race Sunday and was closing on second when the bike died again. Blew the fuse again for the fuel pump. The fuel was boiling again. I have been through all the wires and there's nothing cut, rubbing or even scratched. My next thought is maybe the fuel pump itself has an issue.
After the bike died, I sat down for awhile and waited for a sweep rider. The sweep rider went to my pits and retrieved a few more fuses for me since I had blown through the three spares I had. I rode the bike back to the pits on fire roads at a decent speed so the bike was getting plenty of air. After sitting and cooling off and then getting changed, I hit the tank under the seat with an IR temp reader. The fuel tank was at 200f. I wonder if the fuel pump itself is overheating and causing the problem. We'll see.

Re: Pictures of coated Pipe.

Have you checked the fuel pressure?

If the pressure regulator is messed up and it is causing too high fuel pressure it could be overloading the fuel pump.

Or.

Have you checked the in tank filters? If the in line filter is clogged this could also raise the pressure really high putting too much load on the fuel pump.

Or.

Have you pulled the fuel pump itself to make sure that it is seated in the holder correctly?

Is there anything else that is fed from that particular fuse?

Fuel Pump Fuse is solely for the Fuel Pump. Takes this path:
12 Volt direct from the Battery via 20Amp Fuse in the Starter Relay.
Fuse 2.
Black/Blue Wire to Pin 14 on EFI Computer.
Pin 15 EFI Computer to Fuel Pump. Not sure of the wire color. Diagram says Blue/Green, but the picture looks Blue/Grey. It also looks to be Blue/Grey maybe Blue/White on the bike.

The Brown Wire out of the Fuel pump goes straight to Earth.



Time to put that bike on the Dyno with an Air Fuel Ratio meter to see if it is running lean.
Like Dale said, Fuel Pressure Check is a good idea.
I can only guess the Fuel pump is faulty or the regulator is faulty if it is blowing fuses.

The EFI Computer uses TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) for the Fuel Mapping "somewhere" off idle to WOT, so are you sure your TPS has not come loose and moved and things are running lean and hot?

Muffler not blocked with something?
