Is there a way to remove the blue heat color from the exhaust pipes? I tried some Mothers Chrome cleaner did not help.

Yeah......theres sumthin' out there. I think it's called "Blue Gone" or something like that. I thought it was from Mothers. It's not regular chrome polish, but made to take the blue off. I ran into it surfin' the net one day........ can't remember where though, fried to many brain cells.

I think this is what I saw....... don't know if it works.

Here it is:

There is also a product called "The Bom" which is a liquid form or very close to the "Blue Job"

Well the real life situation with blued pipes is live with them. I used to ride Harleys and no matter how you tuned the bike or what heat range plugs you used, with time the pipes will blue, turn gold, all the colors of the rainbow.

These products will help a bit, the first time or two, however it they have been blued for a time, the color is the same all the way through the chrome coating.

Heat shields on the exhaust is about the only way to deal with it, cover up the blue and let it go.


The 1800 is my bike. The very best motorcycle ever made. I was enthralled with my first test ride on this machine. It is a great bike.

I agree with Kit , I have found nothing works , but if you see a dog piss on your pipes wash it off before starting your engine ,,,they will turn blue right before your eyes ,,,that is if your watching!!!
It will not come off.

Nothing works is correct. The chrome is over heated; too lean / too rich, whatever. Cheap exhausts are thin and the situation is worse.

Agree with the rest,I even coated the inside of my cycleshack pipes (spent $30 for the kit!)for my harley &amp; still wound up with bluing.If you're willing to spend time with fine steel wool,along with mothers polish,after every ride, you can keep up with it,but thats only if you plan to have the bike judged.Otherwise go with the heat shields!
