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.
