    Re: Polished Exhaust

    Sacrilege to have a too clean motorcycle. Wash off the dirt, S100 spray wax quick wipe and done. Of course I live on a gravel road, that might has something to do with attitude. Maybe the chrome should not have rust spots. Now the windscreen is another matter, clean that at stops if necessary. Polished chrome is for H-D bike shows.

    The muffler is the easy part to keep shinny. Its the header pipes that are the challenge.

    The exhaust can is chrome plated. The head pipes are unplated.

    Not sure about the US models but the Australian models have a polished stainless steel muffler and the remainder of the exhaust is unpolished stainless steel

    That's the way ours are, too. My guess is that there's very little difference from one country to the next.

    Re: Polished Exhaust

    Thought this might be of interest.
    I have a couple of bikes with stainless exhaust and the disscolouration always annoys me. No matter how well I cleaned it it was back in a few weeks
    so I finally went for the ultimate fix and got them 'ceramic coated' and it has held up pretty well for the past few years.
    It is slightly less shinny than chrome.
    It was done by 'Camcoat' in Warrington (UK) for 108 inc carriage - Bargain!!!020764 Deauville's exhausts after ceramic coating.jpg020756 Deauville's exhausts before ceramic coating.jpg
