I have a 06 triple and the exhaust is starting to tarnish and looks like rust... anyone have any suggestions for cleaning the exhaust? I thought it is stainless?

Get some stainless steel polish from Home Depot in the kitchen department.

Another product is Lime A Way, It will clean up real nice, just did it yesterday.

Yip, I just use a metal polish and it takes the tarnish right off. But in saying that it's back again on your next ride, So I wouldn't worry about it to much, Just give them a good polish once a month :cool:

Lime Away with some fine steel wool. It's been over 500 Miles now and they havn't changed color back. Cheap stuff too (wear some gloves and don't drip it on any painted stuff.

I'm not sure of the chemicals but it's a cacium lime and rust remover, Lime away it's self is just a brand. I think Avi8tor is right though.

Here in sunny England!!!! try Harpic limescale remover. Rub it on with a rag then rinse off with lots of water. Works a treat and the tarnish stays away for a while.
