I park my bike in a indoor heated garage. I usually just throw the cover on over right after I'm done riding. Nothings melted or anything. Is that what your were wondering would happen?

Yeah basically, unfortunately I have to park mine outside, under an overhang, but still outside, just worried that when i put the cover on if i haven't waited long enough it might melt part of it.

It depends on what the cover is made of. With some covers you can throw it on right away, other you would have to wait.

dont let it touch the pipe, and make sure you can touch the muffler sides with your hand before you put it on.

What year is the bike? On my 06, I would cover it immediately...However, the 09 tail exhaust sticks out a bit far, so I wait about 30-45 mins. It also makes a difference if you are funning a C/F pipe, as these seem to not get as hot.

even if your pipe is CF, there is still plenty of heat coming OUT of the exhaust because the rest of it is still hot... if your cover cant take the heat i would still wait between 30 min to an hr.

^^^Thats been established in like ten other threads....

To the OP.... It depends on what the ambient temperature outside is... the colder it is the faster it will cool off... I doubt it'll be anything more than a half hour even on a hot day....

Ok cool, thanks for all the help, I had figured on something around 45 minutes but figured I'd ask rather then try it and have a melted cover lol. Thanks again guys.

if your cover cant take the heat, get it out of the kitchen.

seriously though, if you need to put the cover on right away, just throw a rag over the exhaust tip so u dont have to worry about melting through the cover.

Cover?! What is that? I don't really worry about it. If you're worried about how hot the exhaust is I'd wait until you can touch the exhaust without your skin sticking to it. If you lose several layers of skin it's too hot :)

I can't imagine that you'd have to wait any more than 10 minutes though.
