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.

    • Two charter boats. (11 people) Fishing was very slow last Sunday afternoon (8), but we did really well on Monday morning (43). Due to bad luck drawing cards, neither Mrs Duff or I touched a rod on Sunday. She went 5 for 5 on Monday. That's fishing for ya though. And true fishermen understand that.   Some real nice fish this year, good luck to those that make it out there.      
    • And no, it does not have some sort of virus. They are calling it a phishing site and it is not. It competes with Google adsense so it make sense for Google to be sloppy in their algorithm.
    • Great storytelling with pictures on a portion of your life experiences in the  great outdoors.  Thanks for sharing Len.  
    • Len - This was a very nice article.  I enjoyed your writing style.  Take care.
    • I am going to pick up a box to pattern against what I am shooting now. Here is my question. They are available in both 1 3/4 oz. shot and 1 7/8 oz. shot in 12 gauge. In a 3" 12 gauge #5 shot shell, that comes out to a 21 pellet difference. The velocity for 1 3/4 is 1200 fps, for 1 7/8 is 1080. At 20 yards it would make very little difference, but say at 45 yards would you rather have the extra 21 pellets or the added velocity? I suppose the answer is to buy both and pattern them, but I am curious as to the thoughts of the folks on this board. Thanks
    • I was looking to get an otter XT pro cabin this winter, I was wondering of anyone on here has an otter in the pro platform and how they like the extra insulated walls. Does it seem bulky? Too warm on above 0 days? I wouldn't mind just the normal cabin but they only offer it with a bench it seems but having the extra insulation may be nice to have for those cold days here and there. 
    • Thank You for the very interesting and enjoyable morning read
    • we have the 4.6 merc and found it bogged down until we popped new plugs in and it ran like a champ.  This boat sees well over 75-80% of its time trolling, but throttles down when we first go out each time.  Might be a different beast but in most motors hammering down once or twice each time you use it should be enough to keep things clean as long as your running non oxy gas.
