Greetings, All, (My first post) I use Never Dull on cold pipes. It may take a few times for it to come off completely, however it has always worked for me. ;)

Welcome aboard Glideman, glad to have you here. [smiley=xyxthumbs.gif]

No I hav'nt tried anything yet. Been busy workin' and have been busy selling the Road King (finally)! There has been a lot of good ideas. I have some 3M adhesive remover I was going to try. Still kinda scared about the sos. That will be my next choice.

Don't be afraid of the SOS pad. I was at first, and was supprised at the outcome.

Wife seems to enjoy melting her heel on her pipes, and let 'em bake on real good. :-/  I use a heat gun and a piece of hard plastic; heat up the mark, then use the edge of the plastic to scrape it off.  Plastic gets a little soft... just use another edge.

But recently I had a cigar lighter in hand (wonder why) and, being too lazy to get the heat gun hooked up, hit the mark with the flame.  Wow, softened it up and I scraped it off with my fingernail!  I didn't 'blast' the mark, just waved the flame over it little by little.  Yes, I burned my finger, thank you very much. :-[ Shoulda used the plastic.  Flames and gas tanks... gotta love it! :D

All sounds so painful!! I wait for the pipes to cool and use "Goof Off" on a clean soft rag. Turn the rag frequently putting more Goof Off on it and let the solvent do the work. Good stuff and ya don't get burnt or blown up!  [smiley=xyxthumbs.gif] ;)

I've used easy off oven cleaner in the past.  If you want to prevent this in the future, look at the Kuryakyn adjustable highway peg for the passenger.  This actually also acts as a foot guard to keep the boot away from the pipe.  Since I've put these on, not a single burn spot. [smiley=banana.gif]
