Hey guys, as the title says and I did find a thread on this back in 05, but didn't really answer my question. I'm thinking of getting an akrapovic slip on (as soon as I can find a good used ones/sell my other junk to pay for it) and I want to know if the CF will start to fade after all the heat? It gets pretty hot at the tip and I don't want to throw down couple of bills just to find that the CF is fading. And if the CF does in due time, fade, how would I go around to "polishing" it so that it doesn't fade or anything? Anyone have any insights, unless the CF that akrapovic made is already made to take up the heat and fade. Any insight would be awesome. Thanks.
