Put the wrap on the pipe this morning before bed. It's still moist after 12 hours drying.

I had used a little JB Weld to secure the wrap where there's a quick change in angle so that it wouldn't slip down and become loose.
I noticed my pipe wrap stays wet a while from just one unavoidable permanent puddle on the coast path.
I went back and squished a bit extra JB Weld onto the wrap on underside of the muffler pipe, painting it into the weave from tgd outside and trying to leave a sealed surface to deflect or to reduce absorption of front wheel spray.
The front fender is already fairly long, and full length would be almost to the ground. I might still add something to the fender.. but it feels like there should be a limit of full fenderedness.
Pipe wrap causing corrosion appears to be another thing to worry about. 🙄

It's been an interesting last couple of days getting this thing running right. Second run I blew exhaust gasket and didn't even notice it until I took out the third time. So had to make a new gasket. My kind of motor mounts produce to much vibrations so I'm going to redesign them with some isolation built in.

I had more residual damage from my ride on the 8/5 than was visible at first. Turns out I had a broken motor mount. This one will be better and the bike feels more solid when I ride it.
