I don't have a DBXL, but it doesn't hurt to wrap the pipe. I wrapped the Bartolone pipe on my Five to keep the heat down since it passes over the battery box. Helps to keep heat off the battery and to keep myself from toasting my hand when I need to access the battery after a race and don't have time to let it cool.

What are you guys wrapping your pipes with? I'm familiar with wrapping stuff on 1:1... I wrapped the header on my bike, but surely it isn't the same stuff...

Same stuff. I used exaust wrap I picked up at a local MX shop.

I'm getting some. I replaced the pipe in my brothers raptor, and in my raptor, and now that the heat shields are incompatible with the new headers in either machine, I keep burning my damn right leg in my pants.
