My smell gland isn't good enough to pinpoint exactly what kind of smell it is, but I do remember so crud on my pipes, probably from something splashing up from the front tire, (I'm an all-weather type of rider). I'll clean them and see how that works. I know there was a post with the recommended substance to clean your pipes with, but I don't know where, any recommendations?. I'd really like to get something that will really make them shine.
On another though, why are some of the pipes I see on 9ers silver and others are a bronze color? Mine are the bronze color?
