Default What type of Heat Sheild do you use with China Fairings?

Hey, for anyone who bought aftermarket china fairings, what kind of heat shielding did you buy for them?

Everyone recommends DEI, but they have like 3 or 4 different kinds of heat tape and heat cloth.

Would the really thin tape stuff work or should I get the thicker cloth-like stuff? The tape protects anywhere from 450 to 800 degrees, the thicker stuff protects up to 1800 degrees. I'd go with that, but it's really expensive for a 2 foot by 2 foot sheet, so I'd rather not unless it's highly recommended.


I also plan on wrapping my headers too.


So...what did you go with?

I have just used the stuff that comes with the fairings and it holds up fine.

The silver lining also acts like a reflector for my LED's which makes them much brighter inside the fairings

Really? And you've had no issues with warping or distortion of the lowers?

None at all and I have had them on for about a year and a half and maybe 25k.
