    If you have relocated the master cylinder like "wot" I have then apparently all you need to do is wrap the rear manifold downpipe with sheilding stuff. I am not sure if you have not re-located the cylinder if it makes a great deal of difference, in any case as standard most rear brakes are poor, mine is much much better now its on the Gilles rearset, there seems to be more pressure at the wheel now.........I'll keep you posted, if the stuff arrives tomorrow I'll be doing it after I put a new 2CT on the back as the rear is down to the wear inicators............

    You can tell Spring is nearly here, people are fettling their bikes again....Joy

    I wouldn't wrap the actual cylinder mate, it will act as a jacket and retain the heat.

    All you need is the heat deflector plate and to ride faster to get the airflow going across the surface of the cylinder.

    You could wrap the rear pipe to stop heat transference but if you do that I would advise you to do the front too.
