Exhaust cleaner

Apparently when I was moving my bike the pipes were still hot and the sweats I had on burnt into the head pipe. Any suggestions on how to get it off??

Try Colonel Brassy. Great for removing stuff like this off chrome.

I have been using good old SOS pads from the kitchen for years on stubborn stains,etc. on chrome/exhaust. Use plenty of water with the SOS pad and that stain will be gone in no time with no ill effects on the chrome.

Try Blue Job Chrome Polish.
Check the video for it on You Tube.
Search bluejobchromepolish. It's a little long but pretty amazing stuff.

I spray WD40 on OOOO steel wool. Get the pipe warm and clean the area. Let the pipe cool a little and clean with damp micro towel. Works great !!!

Go to Ace Hardware and get some bronze wool. Heat the pipes up a bit to soften the spot up. Then put some polish on the bronze wool for lubrication and that stuff will come right off with no effort. The bronze wool will not scratch chrome. Steel wool can leave very fine scratch marks behind.
