Help on chrome cleaner

8 posts in this topic

Just got home from a week long ride with my wife. After putting on 1350 miles, mostly sunshine but had some rain, I noticed that I have a hole melted in the leg of my rain suit. Yep, it got close and melted on the heat sheild of my exhaust. Now I have an area about 1" wide by 3" long, nice shade of brownish black. Well stopped at a HD dealer and asked what would take it off, they said to use Road Rub. Bought a stick, used it per directions and it didn't work. So I am trying to find something to remove melted rain suit on chrome. Anyone have any other ideas??

get some of the super fine steel wool, rub lightly not always in the same direction, and add some chrome polish to it. I promise it works and no scratching unless you rub hard and for a long time. I am a service manager at a cycle dealership and use this daily on bikes that come through our shop. Take your time and you will be amazed what you can remove.

I did what Moehawk is talking about. I had a chunk of snow pants melt to my pipe and it worked.

Used a 3M scratch pad, goog gone, and HD bug off plus 1 1/2 hours of rubbing to remove melted frogg togg rains suit from my heat sheild. Starting to think about about some new Vance and Hines during all that rubbing. Got it off but boy what a @#$%& job!

Try using easy off oven clener. My wifes heal of her boot melted on my exhaust. I sprayed easy off on it let and let it sit over night and it rubbed right off.

Well guys thanks for the tips. But I have finally accepted defeat. I am thinking a new set of pipes are going to be in order here. I tried, road rub, from the local dealer, steel wool with polish cleaner and finally the oven cleaner. My wife thought I was nuts when I asked her if we had any and was going to use it on the bike. After numerous hours of rubbing the melted material is still there.

Have you tried a razor blade ? I had a similar problem a few years back , and I used a razor blade and it worked great.

    • Hey you guys-you forget I'm an old Alaskan.  I know all I need to know about the dingbat and her famous family. If you are actually accepting her blather as useful intelligence and knowledge than you are as squirrely as she is. Let her just fade away for Pete's sake.
    • Hi Dave.  We have talked about this briefly a year or two ago.  Due to the paranoia factor on this site I and most others aren't here as much.  I do miss guys like you Dave.  I remember the pic of your camper at Itasca so we took a drive through this summer.   I wondered where your spot was.  Man I hope you come out of this alright Dave.  My Uncle had diabetes bad and finally lost the battle.  The docs said change your diet or take the shot.  He said give me the shots.  Well that lasted for many years and his body finally gave in..  He should have changed his diet too.  I took him to a couple of bear baits he wanted to see and he told me his feet were finally giving in.  AND he was a tough guy.   Anyway Dave we all love you and I hope you can persevere....   I am thinking good things for you so you think positive too.....    Barry.    Hope this isn't deleted for one of their paranoid reasons...  If it is deleted I will never be back as many others.   So sad.....
    • It is interesting how people got out so early.  I have done it too.  3 or 4 hits with the spud and it is alright.......  NO it isn't ....  It is manly to talk about getting on the ice first.  Well now that I am older I realize it is stupid talk not manly.  The fishing sales world is just as guilty.  They talk about the first ice fishing being so good.  They actually are hugely responsible for getting stupid people out on thin ice.  The lets make a buck is more important than anything.  ANYTHING!!! 
    • Great pictures.   I'm used to seeing eagles, but those pictures are outstanding. 
    • Didn't I just do that?   Can't you read? 
    • Only if they have a drinking problem and maybe me implants.  That's all the Canadian folks care about....
    • That sounds like a great idea. 
    • I know perfectly well how phishing works.   Typical Liberal thinks anyone who is not toeing the party line is ignorant.    It isn't that hard to phish a fool like podesta.
    • I feel like we were just water skiing not to long ago!  Definitely caught a sun burn for deer season ha.  I'll be doing my fishing at the grocery store for a bit yet.
    • Remember, your fishing for pickerel!!  No such thing as walleye where your fishing
