Wrapping exhaust pipes

While I have my Commander apart changing the belt I have been giving thought to wrapping the exhaust pipe that runs right next to the CVT cover.
Mainly to save heat on the cover and possibly extend belt life due to the extra heat. My question is would it be ok to wrap just the part that runs past the CVT cover and if that would help or will it cause issues with the exhaust down the road?

Mine has been wrapped sense 2012. Hasnít rusted out yet. We have lots of water here. But if going to wrap it should do it from front to rear . Just wrapping a short section isnít going to help much.

Yeah my thoughts were to wrap from the front past the CVT cover just to eleminate the direct heat right beside the cover

If you run near or in lots of water be sure only to put one wrap around. If not it will build twice as much steam .

Saw one of the last gen Maverick's melt the plastic on the passenger side because of the wrap.

I dumped a gallon of water on it, then pulled the seat out and tossed it into the bed of my Commander so we could get at it "just in case".

Unless it's a RZR and the wrapped pipe has some exposure, I won't do it.
