Cleaned up my exhaust
Permalink  
 


Had a couple of hours spare so removed the muffler & engine pipe from the TTR, cleaned it up & gave it a polish.

Was unsure if the gold colour would come back but after a short run it started to turn gold, looks heaps better, now if only the WRR pipe looked that good.

I know there is no performance gain but it does look good & easier to clean for a while, I've had the bike for 8yrs & 24,000kms

Cheers Terry

Hi Terry,
My Front Pipe is a Stainless Steel Shorty one from Totally TTRs Shop so looks like this most of the time.
Only takes a quick wipe to bring it back up, when it gets abit dull.
What did you use to get your steel pipe to look like this ?
"Elbow Grease" and ........
Info would be handy for other situations.
Cheers
Jeff

 Used elbow grease with a quick clean, followed by a rub with wet & dry & the final polish using a metal polish & a buff with a lambswool pad in the drill

The muffler is stainless steel, not sure what the engine pipe is but it did start to go a golden colour after a 5 minute run
