Hey Guys,
What do you use to clean, or reccomend to clean the titianium header pipe on a gas gas.
I have heard everything from wd 40 to Oven cleaner.
I have burn marks from my pants I want removed and not to keen on using steel wool,
Any sugguestion would be great

Hi Mzutelija

Ti is pretty tough stuff but it depends on its alloy componants - I've had lot's of 'pants' stuck on my SY and Gasser Ti pipes - I found WD 40 works when its 'fresh' but once it's baked on the only thing I've had sucess with is Autosol - works a treat but it can stain the pipe so try it first - I do the whole pipe ( I do it a lot :oops: )that way any slight dicolouration is even - and make sure the pipe is cold. Good luck...

Hi Mzutelija

Best thing Ive found is some pure petrol. Make sure and dry it off evenly.

I find if you just leave it and keep riding it will burn off without a mark.

A Zeta carbon heat shield would help aviod future burns
