I found out a couple things today: 1) Baggy nylon wind pants will melt on the pipes - not when you're riding, but when you get off the bike. 2) Took wife on first "real ride". She likes the slower cruising, hates getting on the highway - thinks the wind is going to blow us over (Dorothy, grab Toto!).
Question: How do you get the gunk (melted nylon) off the pipes?

Try Goo-Gone ...that works for me when I get boot marks on my pipes.

is it chrome? the pipe that is.

If its not, you might just try s****ing it away with a very mild metal brush, or a tough synthetic brush.

If it is chrome, I have no idea, I don't have chrome on my bike...

Super fine steel wool will not scratch chrome. Make sure not to use it on any chrome colored plastic. Spray a little wd-40 or some goo gone and it will come off in a flash. BTW I had a flash back from the 80s when I read your heading and was thinking about those old parachut pants.

You can use Acetone or MEK on chrome (rinse with water and finish with chrome cleaner afterward) but if you do be sure to use good ventilation and no sparks as these are highly flammable. Also as Heather said...Goo-Gone should work.

JoeNo - I'm a throwback and run in the "old school" baggy stuff. Yeah - look stupid and ride a motorcycle (maybe I should've bought an HD - J/K!). :)

It's tuff to think that all the things we used to like to wear is now known as "old school". We can start wearing our old parachute pants and start a revival! ;-)
