How to keep header pipe looking new?

I have had a couple 450s now and after a few rides the head pipe loses that nice blue color and turns into a corroded mess. Is there any way to keep the pipe looking that blued color? If not anyone have any easy tips for keeping the head pipe looking clean?

steelwool will keep it looking clean. I took that to mine and cleaned all the cooked on dirt etc off the pipe.

scotch brite pad works great too; the grey stuff you get at autoparts stores.

dont forget to use WD with it. If you juice it up real good it sands easier and then you can just rinse it off. If you have a ti pipe the color will change but then go back to blue or what ever it was.
