Stainless pipe polishing

Postby devonrider » Sun Feb 12, 2017 11:28 pm

I polished up the headers on my GTS, and they came up lovely.
It did take me the best part of a day because I did them in situ, but the good news is that they lasted about 500 miles before looking scabby again, so I was just wondering if anyone has an effective quicker method of doing the job.
Shiny pipes make a huge difference to the bikes overall appearance

Chrome polish on aluminium foil has been recommended elsewhere - In full disclosure, I have not tried it myself.
