Titainium Header, Looks rusty? WTF!?!

Recommended Posts

Okay, I've got an Akrapovic Evo Ti, and for some reason the header is going a weird colour!

What could it be, how do i get it back to a nice flame!?

If you want to make your SS or Ti look new get the product called WHITE DIAMOND, It is an exceptional product for cheap and works on many other parts on your bike too.http://rds.yahoo.com/_ylt=A0geu75wZvVFVWUBT9tXNyoA;_ylu=X3oDMTB2b2gzdDdtBGNvbG8DZQRsA1dTMQRwb3MDMQRzZWMDc3IEdnRpZAM-/SIG=11mu3m96p/EXP=1173796848/**http%3a//www.whitediamondpolish.com/ What I do is take one of your wifes-or girlfriends best cotton T-shirts and cut a few strips about 16" long and 4" wide. Fold it in half and apply the WHITE DIAMOND to one side only (about 4" long bead) Wrap this around your pipe and then take one end in each hand and begin to pull back and forth--moving up and down your burnished pipe.When you have polished of the residue you can get another shirt from the same place and then bring it back to original with a buff in the same manner.Use a little knuckle grease in the hard to reach area's. The product is the METAL FINISH PRODUCT AND IS A WHITE LIQUID THAT MUST BE SHAKEN UP WELL. It will even remove the blueing affect from the heat. Immodrz Swamp

Well, at least you have a choice...

You could be known either as the only TT member with thousands of dollars of aftermarket parts on his DRZ but no case savers OR

the first TT member to gather rust on a Ti exhaust...

Pick one :applause:
