I saw an ad, in Cycle World magazine, for Cobra brand exhaust that also claims Easy Off cold oven cleaner will be a spray on, let sit overnight, and wipe off in the morning way to get melted boot heels off of pipes.

Never Dull will do the trick. It puts a nice polish on there too.

Boot marks will rub right off with a penny. Has never scratched my chrome shields but I polish it afterward anyway.

The WD40 works like a charm. Warmed the bike up, sprayed WD40 on a wash cloth and applied elbow grease. I had one that really bad and didn't think I was going to be able to remove it. It took sometime and now the pipes look like new.

Steel wool with WD 40 or tin foil with vinegar followed by Never Dull.

Amazing!!! I love the penny idea and it works! My ol man dropped a kitchen towel by mistake on the still hot tailpipe of his 04 HD softail deuce. Left the marks on the pipe for over a month thinking he was unable to remove it. I found this forum, saw this post and thought id give it a whirl and dang if it did work! Thank you. Pennies can be found almost anywhere on the go, so this is a great option!
