Have used it a couple of times on older bikes and it works really well.. make sure you wash it down later wit plenty of detergent and as a previous op said run the bike once you have.

I will literally clean the pipes in minutes but it's pretty nasty so I wouldn't be getting it on my skin or eyes

I must give it a go - I got brand new FMF header pipe for the XR a few years back, and the 'stainless' now looks like it has been sitting at the bottom of the sea for years!
I'd be very impressed if it could get it back to anywhere near new. Before/after pics will be taken

Those spark plugs were just resting in his magic hat.

An infamous character we had Eamonn Andrews present a 'this is your life' red book to him some years ago.

I have rubber burned onto my chrome exhaust. I tried lots of usual things ...autosol etc and couldn't get it off.

I saw this on internet and tried it and it worked better than anything else.

Id be careful where it drips though
