Does/Can Carbon Fiber Melt?
So, I was really bored today and I decided to go out and gut my slip-on.
Yes yes, I know....it's stupid loud, and I'm single handedly bringing a bad name to sportbike enthusiasts, and I'm such a squid, it sounds like shit, and anything else you could bitch at me about.
Now that,that, is oout of the way. I've been wanting to mod my exhaust since I got the bike a couple months ago. I was kickin around doi the gp style and a couple other options.
I just decided to go with gutting my slip on for 2 reasons.
1) it's not permanent...if I don't like it, I can re pack it
2) I like the way the undertail exhaust looks over side exhaust or gp
Anyway, The sound is exactly what I wanted but I have one fear.
I dont know if carbon fiber melts or burns. Went out for a cruise after the work was done and it felt pretty hot...not super hot but hot enough to put the doubt in my head.
So, can anyone answer that question? If it can, what could I use as a heat insulator to protect it?
