    Anyone had their exhaust headers coated that would recommend this method? If so how long has the coating been on and how do they look now?

    Take it the question is too complicated?

    I don't know anyone who has had it done but from research they'll look the same as new 300k/m later. Worth the investment

    Not had it done but been doing a bit of research, 1... If done properly it isn't cheap, 2...any blemish will show up like a sore thumb as it is a very thin coat, 3...Better than powder coat but will still scratch if abused.
    I am hoping to get a pair of Brembo calipers and master cylinder done when finances permit

    I want a pair of down pipes ideally chroming but it looks like platers just aren’t interested

    Try www.agbriggchrome.co.uk as their website says they re-chrome exhausts which many others don't. And they're not too far away. I found them whilst looking for Castleford Chrome Platers who I have used in the past and may not now be trading - at least one reference to them said 'permanently closed', so who knows.
    Several other platers in the Leeds area.

    My riding Buddy had a exhaust header ceramic coated off a Yamaha XT500 by a company in North Wales ?

    It looked good, how long did it last I don’t know as he sold the bike 6 months later to a friend.

    All I know is it was a tad expensive so beware anyone thinking of having it do who lives east of the Pennines ;):)
