Hi,
I foolishly put a dust cover over my bike BEFORE it had cooled!
I now have baked on cloth material on the down pipes...any ideas on how to remove it without scratching them?
Cheers,
Wildhenry.

Run the bike to hot again then wipe it clean when it's hot. ;-)

Obviously not with your bare hands lOl or any other such product that will just replace one melted material with another lOl

Get the pipes warm and try giving them a rub with a bit if softwood.
A piece of slat from a pallet is just the job.

Works well with the aftermath of a cuban heel/forward control combo on Harleys.
