Heirloom Exp. Bonus Continue Past 80/85?

Some of my heirlooms scale to 80. Some say they scale to 85, but will the experience bonuses on them work past the level they say they scale to?

Also, I am approaching level 80. Is there a vendor for starter Cataclysm gear so that I can do cata dungeons right away when I ding? If so, what is the NPC's name and where are they located?

Heirlooms stop giving their experience bonus as soon as you reach their maximum level.

To be absolutely clear, if your heirloom scales to 80, it will stop working the moment you hit 80 (i.e. no bonus XP from 80-81). The level 85 are the same (no bonus XP from 85-86). As such, you're best off replacing them ASAP at those levels because they scale horribly in terms of actual stats.

Just a heads up that you can get an upgraded piece for the Heirlooms that stop at level 80. Go back to the same justice quartermaster you got the original level 80 pieces (Chest and Shoulder) and for 800 JP and the level 80 piece they have the upgraded one to level 85. Pages 5 and 6 on that NPC's tab.
