Re: Cleaning a titanium pipe

I was wondering what you guys use to clean the road junk and stuff off your titanium pipes and cans? I called a local honda shop and he told me to use rubbing alcohol or mineral spirits.. I was kinda thinking along the way of Simple Green. I dont want to try anything till i get some opinions.

Re: Cleaning a titanium pipe

i dont think it matters cuz ti is not likely to stain ... i use soap and water on mine, like car wash or dish detergent ... thing as that it tricky not to streak it when drying

Re: Cleaning a titanium pipe

I wipe down mine with WD40 after every ride. Don't know if it will help with the bigger messes however.

Re: Cleaning a titanium pipe

When it gets really badly stained you can use a scotchbrite pad with something like wd40 and go in a straight line back and forth. This leaves it looking like new again.

Re: Cleaning a titanium pipe

Mother's Mag/Al polish does a nice job too. Leaves it a little more glossy though.
