Getting ready to install ceramic coated header pipe. Before I do, I took temperature readings in 3 places: header, mid-exhaust, and at the tail pipe. Surprisingly, the hottest reading I got was mid-exhaust, not at the header. Who woulda thought. These are the before readings:

The middle of the pipe doesn't have air blowing across it while you're riding.

Ceramic coated header pipe installed. It was $60 bucks. They coat inside and outside with lifetime warranty. I will ride today and see if there is a temperature drop. https://www.jet-hot.com

Did you ever figure out why the 1993 pipe wouldn't fit?

If I loosened the bolts holding on the back exhaust, it fit. Must be a slight variation in production.

Looks like a nice clean install. Glad you got it to fit. Yes I would believe some mfg tolerances could explain the fit. Or lack thereof. Ride safely.

My unscientific test shows a reduction in heat that I feel on my legs while riding. Very noticeable and more comfortable. Well worth the $60.00 to coat the header. Not sure how accurate the Harbor Freight heat gun is. I did two tests. Both came back around 195 degrees with ceramic, down from 222 uncoated.
