Any way to make Ti pipe look better?

I bought my 954 w/ a Hindle Titanium bolt-on and it really needs cleaning up due to lots of light scratches. Is there any kind of polish that will work on Ti? If not what do you guys recommend?

Re: Any way to make Ti pipe look better?

titanium has a nice finish to it and i don't think you can get that semi matte metallic look back once things start scraping and rubbing on the pipe, but you may want to try that scotch bright pad that honda gives you for the stock exhaust when you buy the bike. I'd assume that if it doesn't leave a uniform look then you may have to do the whole pipe with it. i dunno, up to you.

it won't help with scratches but Mothers Mag Polish works well on the Hindle Ti to clean it up.

It's been a while, but I think it was brown.
