I'm going to try this.
I took my daughter for a ride yesterday and after a couple of miles I stop at a red light, look down at my pipes, she has her foot sitting on it. Turn around and quickly went home to clean it off. Wasn't too bad, most of it came off with some scrubbing but there is still a lil blemish.

I used mothers Billet polish on my pipes regularly and it makes them pop, after that I apply mother chrome polish - try it!


I have this philosophy -
" never rub anything on chrome you wouldn't rub on a baby "

Mother's Billet is for aluminum not chrome. It has abrasives in it which is great For aluminum but not chrome....will put fine swirl marks/scratches in it.

I'm not sure I can agree with that - I used it on several diferent bike I've owned and my cars also. everyone that looks at my bikes (especially the chrome) mentioned that it doesn't look like it's ever riden..billet polish has the same thing as jewelers rouge has, so fine it wont scratch the surface of good chrome.....:dontknow:

I just used this Never Dull to clean my pipe because of the residue from my daughter's rubber shoes, she put her foot on the pipe while we were riding. After about 30 seconds of applying Never Dull and then wiping it clean, all the rubber stain on the pipe is GONE!!! :D

Thanks Rubzerk for this suggestion :bigthumbsup:
