These are my pipes. As you can see, the cut is open to the top. Moisture (usually from washing her) settles in the pipe, causing a little rust. Should I be alarmed? Is there anything I should do about it?

Yep. They're going to rust eventually, if only from the condensation produced every time you start the bike. Mask the area off, give it a good sanding, and hit it with these:



That's what I did, and have had no further problems.

Ride it more so they get soot in them. Stop letting rain scare you away! :-D

Snot rocket!

The insides of my pipes are sooty and gnarly. I don't care what the inside of my pipes look like, although with the slash that we've got, it is noticeable. Clean them and paint them if it's bothering you.

That's what I'm saying, maybe they all look like this but with the open slash, it's more obvious.

Maybe this is a valid excuse to buy new pipes?!? They're too quiet to me anyway.
