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.

    • BB, I cant say I disagree with any of those observations. They didn't produce when it counts. That is what really matters, but it isn't the first time that teams excel in the regular season and flop come playoff time and it certainly isn't something that is isolated to the Wild. The Hawks get some slack because they have won 3 cups in the last 7 years, but fact is they have been bounced in the last 2 1st rounds too. By that, they are no better than us. We will see what happens to the Caps. They have a tough draw with the Pens this round, but its not a stretch to say they will get bounced 2 years in a row and be the Presidents Cup winner. Lots of teams have that issue. Anaheim has had that tendency too. Playoffs are a whole different animal. The team makeup that works in the regular season usually doesn't translate well in the playoffs. I agree the Wild need more beef. Staal certainly helped, but they are far from a heavy team especially on the back end with our D. Early on I thought we had one of the deepest D corps in the league. Looking at them in this playoff series they looked weak. We needed a guy like Folin to step in and play some minutes and make a difference, but he was shell-shocked in his first playoff game. I don't think we have much help in that area in Iowa either. The heaviest guy we have Seeler, is a liability big time and I don't know if he will ever make it up to the big club.
    • You can pre-order on a Japanese web site ... i almost did but got spooked out with all the Japanese language and had no idea how to translate and know what shipping and price was LOL     i want one but will wait!!!  so many lures and not enough time
    • Wow .. Sprinkler!!  Wonder where and when we can get one!!
    • Thanks for the advice guys...keep it coming!   Much appreciated before I make a pretty expensive investment.   Ref
    •   I stated they are better than 3/4 yrs ago compared to themselves...my point is the Wild are far from a top tier top 8 team when it counts come playoff playoff time...period...no arguing what just happened.  BB was very vocal in the Presser..."we need to get Bigger/Stronger" and Fletch missed that boat time and time again. Career Years are great personal stats...am I happy for Granlund, Staal, Nino...yes...but personal stats only gets you more personal $$, but if those stats don't translate into team goals they are all for naught....and every NHL Player will tell you that. They did exceed my reg season projection but their true colors showed losing in the first round so over all I was spot on  IMO this team will be missing more than one of these "career year" guys by the start of the new season if BB has more say...and I am getting the feeling he will be getting more say on personel.
    • We just got shut out down by Caledonia also so don't feel bad and we've been turkey hunting since 1980.  We were on private land also but found the birds still flocked up.  We had flocks of 12 - 15 birds we were trying to work and it didn't work.  2 out of 3 could have shot jakes and we all had plays that just did not work out.  That's turkey hunting.
    • I have mapped but never submitted it to be processed. However I have downloaded maps from insight and used them. They work good if your willing to go thru the extra step to download them. If I remember correctly you will have to choose them in chart options or it will just show your regular insight map. The real nice thing is they are free!   I mostly use Navionics I find I like them better than the insight maps & its easier to download user generated maps.
    • Do you know if the GPS tracker part works without cell service? I think that is going to be my biggest issue, I don't know if I can track another phone from my phone without cell signal.
    • Come on BB, you don't have to be positive or a homer to realize this team is light years better than they were 3/4 years ago. The results haven't changed, but that isn't saying they haven't improved. 3/4 years ago we had young guys like Brodin, Haula, Coyle, Nino just getting their wings. This year they had career years in many cases. That is precisely what we have been hoping/waiting for them to do. The way you talk it seems like you forget that the NHL playoffs are best of 7 series. That's a long grind for any team to make and you have to have a lot of luck and some guys playing out of their mind to make it to the finals. I'm not happy they lost in 5 to the Blues, but I'm not giving up on this team either. They do need to make changes, which will reshape this team for next season. Pump some more youth into the lineup and we could certainly have some up and down next year. Like I said before, go back and see our predictions for where they would finish at the beginning the of the season. I am pretty sure I said they would finish like 5th place. Finishing 2nd all things considered, was a pleasant surprise, but guess what, everyone whined about it! LOL
