Removing shoe rubber from exhaust

  1. Having trouble removing shoe rubber from my exhaust, any suggestions would be appreciated.

  2. I used Easy Off Oven Cleaner on my Vulcan for the same thing. Worked a treat. Saturated it with the oven cleaner and wiped off with a cloth. Might take a couple of goes for really baked on stuff. Follow up with a wash & your metal polish of choice.

  3. Hey great thanks. Does it need heat for activation?

  4. My exhaust was completely cold when I did it but the can does say it works quicker on a pre heated oven so maybe a little ride first might help. I probably wouldn't get the exhaust too hot though.

  8. To get rubber off you try some white spirits (on a COLD exhaust). We used to use it all the time when i was racing karts to get the rubber off the sidepods, works a treat on plastic, even easier on metal.

  9. Dude, a rubber on your pipe is not what we mean by 'safe riding'. ;)
