I'm just curious how successful people have been with painting their exhausts with high heat paint, because I've talked to a few people who have advised me against it just because even high heat paint will burn off when on the manifold.

Any thoughts?

Even 'jet-hot coat' will eventually dull and fade like bad paint. I did this to the headers and silencers on my R100 Airhead. Two years on they'd diminished to looking like rust. But there are some newer ceramic coatings that seem to hold up well. A mate uses a version on his Bonneville Salt Flats speed record motos, for several years now, in all that salt and heat...
