……..
Is cerakote (or any other coating for that matter) going to hold the heat in the pipe as well as the factory pipe shield? Will there be a loss of performance in certain conditions if it doesn't?
Short answers.

Maybe.

Probably.

All depends on who you’re talking to……

Is the person purchase justifying?
Or justifying why they didn’t purchase?

Are they going to profit from cerakoting your pipe?

Many opinions available.

Personally I’ve seen 850’s and 900’s have cold pipe bog with the factory clamshell.

I’d be more interested in cerakote and re install the clamshell to eliminate any possibility of cold pipe.

This is my concern as well. I’ve had many of my long rifle barrels cerakoted because they would help retain heat in the barrel to help decrease mirage during competition. So I know it definitely helps in that department. Also will help with durability.

I’ve only done a quick ride (20miles) and no issues with carls pipe on my 850 but I have a couple rides coming in the next few days now that the snow is dumping and will report back.
