I'm getting too much heat from the headers. The MC gets hot enough that it no fun to touch it!

Has anyone see any kind of "heat sock" or wrap to protect the MC? I've got to put heat shield on the brake lines too.

I have run headers on vettes on/off for close to 40 years and never saw this? You can buy header wrap from Summit or Jegs if you want to wrap them. The only time I had a problem was breaking in a cam and had the carb a little too lean so the headers were pretty hot but it cracked the paint on the steering box , the M/C was fine.
