I was riding this weekend having a great time, and I saw it coming a Plastic grocery bag!! i tried to avoid it but ran right into it. It melted on my exhaust i tried to get it off but no luck. any ideas on how i can remove it? thanks
I was checking the front tire pressure on my bike after it was idling and melted the elbow protector off my jacket on the header... (Stupid I know) it's been about a month now and it's almost gone. I find I can smell it when idling in traffic when 3 or 4 bars are on the temp gauge... But that one spot on my pipes is gleaming silver not one bit of tarnish on it. (Coat your pipes in plastic and if ya don't mind the smell they will keep nice and silver...lol Not!!!) I tried to get rid of it to no avail, you may just have to let it burn off... If you’re careful you can scrape the majority off it off with a razor but watch that you don't gouge your pipes. This may shorten the process a bit.
I knew a guy years ago that used paint stripper and it worked a treat at getting the plastic off but as it was chromed it stained it a bit.
Might be OK with stainless steel though.
Maybe try a bit out of site first
