I am curious to find out if anyone has a tip on how to remove the cooked on dirt/mud off of the exhaust pipe? I cant seem to find anything that works, any tips much appreciated.

Mean Green degreaser and a pressure washer if it is really caked on there. Where in Atlanta are you located? We ride all around the Jackson area all the time.

I'm interested as well. I was gonna spray it down with wd-40 and go at it with a brass wire brush?...

I Don't use one( pressure washer). I wash after every ride. I think the OP and myself are talking about some really baked on stuff from muddy water hitting hot exhaust. Mainly on the headpipe area. I'll take a pic next time I'm out there.

Yea thats pretty much baked on. Looks like your engine and coolant/oil lines are discolored as well. Hand scrubbing with ajax might get u some where? Paint scrapper on the exhaust or wire brush.

this on an angle grinder will take it right off. Then repaint the whole exhaust with a high heat glossy finish ceramic paint. Wont stick/bake any more.

The only high temp ceramic paint I could find in glossy had a rating of 500 degrees. Will this work? All the higher temp paint was in flat colors.

I'm trying that. I'm always skeptical of those type if things but that looks like it works!
