Easy OFF oven cleaner works for frogg toggs. I assume it would probably work for the MF burn.

Some stuff that's really good at cleaning chrome and metal is that Barkeeper's Friend. It's non-abrasive and stings slightly on your skin but isn't harmful to you but if a person has allergies or skin irritation issues they can just use rubber, nitrile or latex gloves when using it. Use it on any metal surface that is NOT HOT though and use water to rinse off completely and repeat if necessary. It doesn't take much of it to work. I always use Q-Tips, soft toothbrushes, wooden dowels, popsicle sticks, non-abrasive scotchbrite, metal scribes, etc. for areas I can't normally reach. Just don't get it in areas where there are cracks and crevices you can't reach but for exterior surface areas it works great.

Fellow at work told me to rub the pipes with a wad of aluminum foil. Thought he was crazy but it removed my melted Frogg Togg smear off my pipes easily and didn't scratch them at all.

maybe .... er, wait until the bike cools down !, Im not trying to be a dick, but why would you wipe a bike down that hot. As far as covers, there are "hot bike " covers that have thermal panels for the hot parts.

Default exhaust cleaning

Use #00 steel wool or finer, and polish, ( mothers, rubbing compound etc.) On a cool exhaust no pun intended, along with a little elbow grease should take care of it.

Did try steel wool and something...maybe it was goo gone...didn't touch it. Maybe should have tried coarser steel wool.

Just have a piece of leather sewn on the area that would hit the pipe, it works great. I paid 10$ to have it done. It is thin leather but works great.

Re Frog Toggs I went Mejer's or Kmart and bought some stick on patch material stuck it to the appropriate place an it worked fine. I also bought some stick on reflector tape for the back of the jacket. I live in fear of being rear ended in the rain.
