Two purposes. Heat protection and supposedly to improve gas evacuation. Ceramic coating is a better alternative so it's purely aesthetics. Personally, i'd like it better with Titanium hi-risers
Trickle down from industrial use.
I was using it 43 years ago when mounting burners fed with 5" gas pipe, into thermal oxidizers.

Kinda Tom. Actually, if you were really serious about this temp thing, you’d do both. In fact you‘d do 3 things: ceramic coat the inside, ceramic coat the outside, and wrap.

But yeah, I’d also sooner see multi coloured Titanium pipes personally !

Bottom of a pair of jeans that are turned up
'Turnups '
Used to have those classic flared jeans in the 80s and no front chain guard on my Honda 250 it would munch up the flares , I pulled up at the lights one day and went to put my left foot down and fell over 😀 .

For this bike, purely aesthetics

I use a MGL avionics gauge ,relatively cheap , you can plug your K-type sensors straight in and most digital ones let you select how many sensors to read at the same time, less gets you a bigger font .
