A good old canadian penny works wonders too. Make sure it's a copper one though (check it with a magnet).

Just warm up the pipes, and scrape the gunk off with the penny.

Copper is a softer metal than chrome and therefore won't scratch the chrome. US pennies and some of our newer ones are made of brass and they WILL scratch since brass is a harder metal.

Cheers,

Lou

I use #000 steel wool, (not sos pads) from canadian tire comes in a bundle about one foot long, just tear off a piece and rub lightly it will also remove rust and will not damagae chrome. I do not have a garage so I use it often

I know the feeling no Garage. Sucks eh? This year tho I bought a backyard 10x10 awning/gazebo at crappy tire and put it up in the driveway to park the bike under LOL. wife thinks I'm nuts LOL.

It worked well and the bike stayed totally dry except the worst storms. Keeps alot of the dust and crap off too

Just a thought

Later

Tom
