Re: Why did my pipe discolor so quickly?
One of the most common problems involving motorcycle parts is that which involve exhaust systems. These problems may include cosmetic problems like bluing and other related discrepancies.
If you are already in possession of your desired motorcycle exhaust, be sure to coat it with Blue-Shield, Dyno Kote or other compatible products in order to preclude the exhaust from turning blue.
If your exhaust system has transformed from chrome to bluish black, use blue-away, blue-buster and other suitable product depending on your bike’s brand. Apply it with a little elbow grease to achieve best results.
In case your pipes become blue too quickly or over and over again, it can be a manifestation that the air-fuel mixture or timing is not right or accurate. To overdo the mixture and make it overly rich can turn the pipe or muffler blue. This is because the unburned gas ignites on a baffle or hot spot. Too lean mixture or timing can cause pinging. It can also turn an extremely hot exhaust into blue.
