  • Polishing chrome with red rouge

    I have the pipes off my bike. The machinist is on vacation until the 23rd. I’m wanting to polish my pipes. I read online to use red jewelers rouge on a cotton wheel. Anybody ever tried to resigned dull lightly scratched or gold/blue pipes and had luck?

    I have a couple dull spots where I removed melted rain gear or boot sole. Pipes are slightly gold at the flange area and slightly scratched from wear.

      I always had good luck with Nevr-dull. Some complain of scratching, but I’ve never really noticed it. Use Mothers alum polish on the aluminum parts of the bike.

          So does never dull have actual abrasive polish in it? Is it something I can buy local?

            Pick it up at pretty much any auto parts store that sells car wash and car care stuff. Auto Zone and or Orielly’s

            It’s cotton wading impregnated with polishing compounds and chrome protectant. Just pull of a hunk the size of a small walnut, and go to work.

              I use this stuff called Blue Job, it works great on gold and blued chrome pipes.

              There are several youtube videos about this stuff.

              Good luck.

                I just noticed the pic of your bike is reversed. Looks like the exhaust is on the left side of the bike. Unless your down under where everything is reversed.

              Red rouge would be pretty aggressive on chrome imho. It is what I use on uncut aluminum fuel tanks

                i spent a few hrs on my pipes this morning.. I used turtle wax chrome polish and brass wool first and then never dull. They look much better but not awesome. I'm gonna order some Blue-Job and use it after they are installed and see how much gold/blue I can get rid of

                  Been around for decades and forgot all about it. This stuff surprised me. ‘Melts’ the rust spots that began to appear right off and shined all the neglected chrome to my satisfaction.
