Where are you looking at putting it? If you are trying to shield heat inside the fairing I would suggest some type of reflective foil pad with an adhesive backing. DEI makes some variations of this that I have used with success in automotive applications.

Any time you trap the heat against the pipe they tend to deteriorate faster. Fiberglass exhaust wrap seems to do this faster beacuse it tends to trap more moisture than metallic tapes. Another option might be to send them out to a company like Jet Hot and have them ceramic coated.
