Question Advice from the Collective Knowledge base Please

I have some stains from my boot heels melting onto the pipes behind the pegs. Anyone have a product they would care to recommend to clean the pipes without damaging them?

Elbow grease and a chrome polish like Flitz or Simichrome might take that off.

Years ago I used to use spray on oven cleaner to clean the road tar and oil spray off the pipes of an old commuter bike. At the time I was doing 104 miles a day, 5 days a week on the interstate. ...J.D.

Try Kleen King. Follow the directions, it must be used on hot pipes. Yes, it absolutely works and does not require rubbing, scouring, polishing, etc.

I would start with WD-40 and a soft cloth and get more aggressive if you need to.
