My daughter playing with Carbon Fiber

For a 6th grade class my daughter had to make and market an idea. Her teacher rides and has a scar from an exhaust burn, somehow it was class topic. Well for Madison's project she decided to make a carbon fiber guard for her CR85. Time will tell how hers will hold up but it looks great and covers right where her leg rubs. January in Michigan she couldn't get any accurate temperature readings.

Few more pictures.
No pictures of it mounted but looks great mounted with stainless hose clamps (she put 4 slits for clamps to attach). Schools are moving in the right direction ��

Carbon alone will conduct heat but with a layer of heat-reflecting material inside, it would be great!

Hey, if it's away from the exhaust itself so there's an air-gap, it will be significantly cooler even without a reflective layer.

With the aluminum foil and release compound the inside is rough so a lot of areas not tight against pipe.

My idea was to manufacture toilet paper laced with bacteria. That way every flush you would be treating the septic tank. I thought that was a winner but all I got was "that look".

There's plenty bacteria in each poop to keep your septic happy and going. No need for extra

Nice! The rough surface on the inside is a feature designed to create an air gap to insulate the guard from the hot pipe.

But really, lets just focus on the fact that we have a 6th grade girl with a CR85 fabricating carbon fiber bits for it. She is in the running fro the coolest kid on the planet award

1000% legit.

She might be interested in following the work of abc. He's a super duke guy who builds custom stuff out of carbon fiber. Here are a few of his threads:

I'll show her. I sure thought his work was educational.

Thanks Grom

Very cool!

How is she attaching it to cover the exhaust? Is there a bracket on the inside?

Being that I am in marketing. See if you can help her come up with a logo/name for it....maybe in her favorite color. Consider a play on words or something to connect with the teacher's story? My son is in 6th grade too...I wish he had this project!

She cut 4 slits in it with the dremel tool and used 2 hose clamps. There are 2 exhaust mounts that she probably could have used. She did get 100% on the project.
