    Before spending too much of the well-earned stuff, try this for 2 a pop.



    Use rubber gloves!  I put it on with a brush, agitate it with a toothbrush, or fine wire wool and wash off thoroughly.  Works a treat for me

    100milesaway on here is the undisputed king of clean pipes, his Versys 1000 had the cleanest pipes by far, his bike is now owned by Towerman, I assume that the pipes are still immaculate

    yes they are still shiny

    I also did my manky 2009 V650 45,000 mile pipes the other day and brought them up yo the same standard

    1st use harpic and wash well
    2nd use 0000 wire wool and a good metal polish like Peek
    3rd finish off with a buffing cone in a portable drill  :7:
