I've had very good results using Nevr-Dull by Eagle One.

I found several different solutions online to this online. The one that worked for me was to apply WD40 to cool pipes and let it sit overnight. I then used chrome polish from turtle wax the next day and it wiped right off.

There are different grades of steel wool. Get a very fine one, I bought mine at Lowe's. Works great and does not scratch.

Oven cleaner, it dont hurt the chrome cooking racks in your oven.

A really sharp pocket knife (this one will scratch so be very careful and go slow, ask me how i know), and plenty of penetrating oil.

All on cool pipes.

Then polish.

000 or finer steel wool does not scratch chrome...I have used it all my life. Nothing easier and no chemicals involved.

I went out for a long ride and made sure to get the pipes good and hot. Then I just used a rag and it wiped right off.

Here is the best way to do this.

Take a penny.
Scratch off the burnt on rubber with the edge of the penny
Take tripple ought steel wool and rub affected area.
Polish with your preferred chrome polish.

Will not scratch your chrome and looks like new when done.

Good Luck

Loud pipes save lives. When all else fails, stop drop & roll.
