Default Re: Wife's melted heel on pipe

I have gotten quite a bit of that Shiite off my pipe, usually use Flitz, a metal polish, but that is starting to wear off the chrome. The best idea I have tried is to wipe it off while very hot, using a clean white rag. Oven cleaner cautions against using on chrome, so I never tried it. Best of luck. Clem.

You know, if he'd been riding an SV650, Concours, or used VFR, this would have never happened.

Use Goof Off. I removed rock-hard burned-on vinyl from our clothes iron. Goof Off got it off and left no residue. It took about three passes before it was clean.

I've heard that they are immune to this type of thing as well.

He was probably on his way to the Suzuki/Kawasaki dealer when that happened

I have removed bootheel rubbers and plastics from exhaust pipes with steel wool, in the 0000 (four ought) grade. It takes some elbow grease, so it helps if you warm up the pipes a bit first. I'd recommend wearing some heavy welding gloves while you do this.



It's what they use at the local Harley dealership to polish chrome all the time. (I have a buddy who was a detailer for them for a while.)



By the way, this also works great on aluminum and stainless to repolish it. Don't use it on brushed, though, or you'll have to do the whole piece and turn it polished. If you're really pedantic, you might wish to use stainless steel wool on your stainless steels. It's what I use on the TIG stuff at work to make it all nice and shiny.

"I'm kinda bummed, but think that I should keep her."



The wife, that is? LOL

Sorry, just couldn't resist it...



Personally I get lots of things burn on my Suzuki DRZ400S exhaust. Recently I had a full large size sunlotion protective (and VERY smelly) cream on it. Had a nice scent to it all throughout the 2-days trip
