    I have Screamin eagle pipes that are beginning to blue at the header pipe junction. Is there anything i can do to remove the blue?

    There's polishes that will remove the blue but it dulls the chrome too.

    Bike sounds lean.

    Do you have heat shields on?

    Autosol, best thing since Pledge :s

    The Detailing Shop - Autosol

    Total Motorcycle reviews. Autosol All Purpose Metal Polish

    I have been using it for years now and it is amazing stuff, used it for 15 years on the springers pipes to remove the bluing that was there every long ride.... pipes still shine like new.

    I don't know if this works as I have not tried it myself but I have been told if you spray
    high temp paint into the header pipes before you fit them it will stop them from blueing.
    Has anyone else heard of this or tried it.

    WAZ..

    That sounds interesting. I'd be curious myself to see if that works.

    Interesting. I wonder if the paint holds up through life of part. I would be concerned of big flakes clogging muffler.

    What causes the bluing on the pipes anyway. Is that running to rich or to lean.
