No need to do anything. They get so fracking hot that nothing sticks to them. Everything gets vaporised.

Do not try to clean 'em with anything.

This post made me think about getting the road grime off my stock pipes, any one recommend a way to do this, having had fairings for years i have not cleaned a header in a while.
I used to use Auto sol and elbow grease on my old Bevel Duke, surely something better has come along in 20 years?

Hello;

for inox headers you can use the swiss made "Optiglanz". Works brilliant.

Charlie, I cleaned mine with brake-clean sprayed on a cloth to remove any hand marks, sweat etc. you don't want that crap permanently cooked into the Ti No

Inox is a short for the French word Inoxydable which means "uncorrodable" if that is an English word. Basically a metal that doesn't corrode...
So we say Acier (steel) Inoxydable (stainless).
