Exhaust too close to timing cover/area

I had a custom exhaust built to my design. I am wondering if it is too close to my timing area of the engine.(PIC enclosed) I am conserned about the heat generated from it. I currently have the pipe wrap off and am going to have exhaust sandblasted, powdercoated, then re-wrapped. i noticed when riding it without the wrap that the heat was VERY extreme compared to when i rode it without the wrap. Even with the wrap , do you think the pipe is too close to the timing cover area? any comment or suggestions would gladly be excepted.

I dont think your pipes are any closer than any other EVO powered scooter. Although heat is the enemy of any in cone ignition module I think you will be ok. If you do kill the ignition module you could go to a remote module ignition. I used a remote module ignition on my hotrod FXR. It just used a pickup in the cone and the module is under the seat. Its been in the bike since new in 1999, Knock on wood, with no troubles at all.

Its a older build. Kenny Boyce frame Scooters built 113 with STD cases and STD heads. It was the first 4" bore STD cases. Zippers cam it has gobs or torque I cant help but smile when i twist the throttle..If i were to do one again it would look more like the ones Gypsy was building but with a big inch twin cam engine.....
