Exhaust Header Pipe Heat Discoloration

I am always on the fence between "Badge of Honor" and "Takes Away From The Look" when it comes to Header Pipe Discoloration

Curious as you to your thoughts.

So far I think I am the only one to think it takes away from the look - The BUB Exhaust on the FXR is showing signs.....NvrDull did not work so I have some Blue Away on its way to see if I can get it back to the Shinny Chrome - Otherwise, over the winter......I'll have the System Re-Chromed as I really like the looks of this "BUB Double Crosser" and they really only have Bassani 2:1 and Paughco as options out there for the Bike.....neither of which excite me

it doesn't bother me that much, but you can always get them ceramic coated:

a good tune helps, but some mfgs (like bub) use thinner gauge pipes that will blue quickly.

I like that site - I'll have to keep in mind over the winter - I like that 2500 degree option with a lifetime guarantee
