Hello all,

I have searched through the forum and have not been able to find any post on this topic. My wife has decided that the exhaust is a good place to rest her foot while riding and I now have a nice patch of black rubber melted to the exhaust. I have been trying multiple ways that have not even began to remove the spots. Does anyone have any tips/fixes for getting rubber off the exhaust?
Thanks

I saw the Easy Off spray on oven cleaner trick on a thread here a couple of weeks ago. Someone had also suggested WD40. Both suggestions said to try on really hot pipes, and spray the stuff on a clean cloth, not on the pipes. I had some plastic grocery bag junk that got welded on my pipes, so I tried the WD40 first -- no good. The Easy Off worked. It took some serious elbow action but my pipes are clean. :p

Any suggestions on getti ng the blueing off the exhaust pipes, Have a place approx, six inches long, very notiable, thanks.
This is a completely different matter, because the bluing is caused by heat. Your engine might be running a bit on the lean side, creating extremely hot exhaust. You might want to post this question in the 'mechanics corner' http://www.kawasakimotorcycle.org/forum/forumdisplay.php?14-The-Mechanics-Corner or search that thread for information.

Mr Clean Magic Erasers have been working well for me when cleaning melted stuff off the pipes. I don't like the smell of the Easy Off and the over spray worries me a bit.

Hello, I have a product that will remove most anything melted on your pipes with little effort and will not scratch or damage the pipes.
If you ever have the need again give it a try.
BritePipes.com

Have a great day!
