Excuse the idiot question here, but is there any reason I cannot use some Brasso or similar brass polish on the brass coloured piping of my 1125r?

I don't see why not, but what brass coloured piping are you talking about? If it's the exhausts, then that's the colour that stainless goes when it's heated. Any abrasive (like Autosol) will do them ;)

Wonder Wheels + Autosol pretty quick read the instructions works well on stainless used to clean my GS pipes well.

If you have some Brasso on hand, give it a try in an inconspicuous place - it might be about as good as the autosol on the stainless ;)
