Should motorcycle exhaust be wrapped?

Exhaust wrap does an excellent job at covering up those blemishes while giving your motorcycle that extra look that people like. Using wrap on your motorcycle exhaust pipes can also be a protective factor.
What can I put in my exhaust to make it quieter?

Some of the popular sound-deadening materials include steel scrubs, metal wool, and fiber glass.
Is exhaust wrap good or bad?
The benefit of exhaust heat wrap is that it reduces engine temperature. And the more heat you can remove from the bike, the better it will run. Heat wrap keeps the heat in the exhaust. From here, the exhaust can do a better job of dispelling it resulting in a better running engine.
Does exhaust wrap improve performance?
The faster flow of exhaust dramatically improves engine performance by minimizing the pumping loss and increasing the scavenging effect: the rate at which hot exhaust gases move through the system. Insulating wrap keeps the exhaust warm, which allows the cylinder to pump with less resistance.
Does exhaust wrap change color?
Because of the wear and tear of the exhaust heat and outside conditions, the wrap will likely change color, whether that’s a tan wrap getting darker or a black wrap turning gray.
Does heat wrap catch fire?
