Buying tape for my pipes, need advice.

Since tape is cheaper, i am going to do half of each pipe. Whomever replaced the pipes on the bike did not put heat shields on them. Will the tape help thet? I know for sure the tape helps with giving a bit more horespower out of it because of the hotter gases but will it help with me not having the pipe so hot it is felt big time while riding(the rear pipe). Also, is there a way to cool the rear jug? Putting some kind of heat resistant stuff between the seat and the jug somehow? The seat gets pretty uncomfy while riding because of the heat. rode it 40 miles home today in 50 degree windy day and felt the heat when i got off the highway and about a mile from home.
