They will probably smoke for about 100 miles or so. they will also shrink. Caution...... depending on the brand you put on, they may even start to stink a bit, especially if they get wet.. this happened to a friend of mine. But, I have no idea what type he put on.. Im assuming he put on the cheapest he could find.. So it may be different in your application.

Can i wrap a catalyst with a muffler wrap

No. The temperature can far exceed what the muffler wrap is designed for and will quickly burn off. I sounds like you may need a new cat. I have seen under certain conditions, a cat get so hot that it actually was glowing red like you put a torch to it. If I were to try anything and I really wouldn't, I would try header wrap because it is designed to withstand temperatures in the range of 1,000 degrees.Your cat is probably rusting out.

Extreme heat coming from the exhaust between seat and body from my 2013 canAm spider RT limited

There are several things you can do to reduce heat on a Can-Am Spyder.

1- Remove the plastic 'Splash Panels' under the frame below the motor. These were added NOT to keep water and debris off the motor, but to reduce noise to pass EPA noise standards. Removing these panels will not hurt anything and allows hot air to flow out and cool air to flow into the engine compartment.

2- Wrap the exhaust with exhaust wrap (found at any auto parts store). Start as far back on the 2 exhaust pipes as possible wrapping towards the front. Wrap all the way to the head on each pipe. 1" exhaust wrap goes around bends better, 2" takes less time. Overlap each wrap by 1/2 of the width of the material.

3- Adding a fuel management system (Two-Brothers Juice Box Pro or Power Commander system) will allow you to increase the fuel mixture to ideal levels. The Spyder runs very lean from the factory creating additional heat.

Muffler is rotting were it connects with the exhaust pipe what is a quick repair?

Some muffler shops use a metal wrapping that might work depending on the area that is rotting. Also you can try some JB Weld but not sure if the metal is in good enough shape to bond. You might have to replace the muffler if it won't seal and bond over the rotting metal.

I have an '06 Vstar 1100 classic and i bought new exhaust pipes for it. How do i get the stock muffler off the headers?

often the sealant used is the problem,undo and remove the bolt/s holding the muffler to the swing arm there will be a clamp of some sort to tighen the muffler to the header undo this and you may need to lightly prise the header pipe open ,normally there are slots in this pipe to allow it to compress onto the header or it could be other way round where slots are on the muffler pipe. you may need to lightly tap these pipes away from each other with a block of wood and a hammer. in some cases they will be very tight together. in the past i have had to run the bike to get the exhaust hot and then cool down with water ONE of the sections to shrink it. BE CAREFULL NOT TO BURN YOURSELF. they should seperate fairly easy then.

EGR line separated at bottom fitting.Bottom nut rusted and won't turn. Looking to repair crack w/o removal of entire line.

Hello, You have a couple of choices. There are 2 products I have in mind and it would depend on the size of the crack and if you can fit one of the products there. The first product is JB-Weld. It is mixed like Bondo but it is capable of being threaded and holding bolts because it dries so hard. You can use it on a hot surface as well as a cold one. You can build it thicker with a second coat if needed.

The second product is a wrap bandage for mufflers and tailpipes. It is available at Autozone, Oreillys, and Advance autoparts. It would wrap around the EGR pipe and heat cure to the form of the pipe. It is made to block exhaust leaks and the webbing in the tape may help seal the crack.

As far as pressure resistance, I fixed the plastic case of a power sprayer and it has held for 5 years so far using JB-Weld.

In either case, the products are inexpensive and come in handy for future repairs. I hope my Solution is very helpful to you.

Heat questions

The shock would get just as hot without the exhaust being next to it. The amount of heat generated by the thousands of up/down cycles a shock goes through, especially at racing speeds, is higher than the heat transferred from the pipe being next to it.
