Default Best stuff to remove melted boot marks on exhaust???

Guys,

I have an 03 Deuce with V & H pipes. I keep getting very thin boot marks on the pipes that are actually melted on there. Haven't found anything yet that will remove them other than literally scraping them off with a razor blade. Any recommendations?

TIA,

Terry

#0000 stell wool, You don't put pressure on it when your rubbing just enough to hold it when you rub.Then use your fav. chrome polish,I use this method all the time and you can't tell I ever had the marks.

Use easy off oven cleaner, cold version on cold pipes. Put it on at night just wipe it off in the morning, it's all I use.

Mr. Clean Magic Eraser - as long as you can use them and elbow grease, the pipes will look as good as new when done - and no scratches from steel wool and no residue from weird chemicals. I swear by the Magic Eraser. It's the best thing since sliced bread.

Eagle One Wadding compound and elbow grease. Get it at any good auto parts store. I melted the leg of a rain suit and some boot heel on the exhaust pipes of my Heritage during a trip to Deals Gap in May, and this stuff worked like a charm.
