Even though these pipes are now double walled, they still get plenty hot. I want to suggest to anyone taking delivery of one of these twins that they'll want to wipe down the pipes between the headers and the mufflers before riding the bike for the first time. This'll remove dirt, oil and preservative, and fingerprints, all of which might otherwise burn themselves into the new chrome. I'd use a clean, soft cloth and a cleaner like Windex.
I did this before taking delivery of my new T-100 in 2003. The pipes still blued, but they did so evenly.
