Keeping Heat Out Of The Cabin

Keeping Heat Out Of The Cabin

Date:Nov 25, 2019

I know in the winter everyone tried to get the heat in there LOL.  But in the summer months you want the cab as cool as possible.  I have done this on previous UTV's and it works well to keep the heat out.  I had some titanium exhaust wrap sitting around my garage from the last project so I figured I would put it to good use and wrap the Zforce also.  I only wrapped the front cylinder because that is the only one that can put heat in the cabin.  I started by pulling the heat shield that bolts on to the header pipe  that is closest to the cylinder.  After that I soaked the exhaust wrap in water (makes it more flexible and easier to work with) and started wrapping around the pipe starting on the downstream side.  Make sure you pull the exhaust wrap good and tight so it wont slide on the exhaust and bunch up.  I do about a 1/2" overlap on mine as I go around.  The wrap comes with metal zip ties and once you get one time around you should put one at the beginning and then one at the end when you finish wrapping it.  I made sure to skip around the heat shield mounts so i could put the factory one back on as well (the more heat shielding the better).  I already had all my plastics out so it only took me about 15-20 min and its a pretty cheap mod that will keep you cab cooler (the header wrap is just over $20).  All in all its something the factory should do but oh well.  At least its easy and the returns are GREAT.  Here is a link to the exhaust wrap I used and  some pictures of it before and after.  I also want to add that you should wear gloves while doing this because its fiberglass and metal slivers and you will itch like no other if you dont LOL.
