    Nice one FLOYD62,

    I've heard of using Harpic but never seen the results.
    It certainly beats the crap out of spending hours with a rag & Autosol! :)

    If it's that good it's probably best to mind your hands as well! :eek:

    Looks amazing and a brilliant job buddy :)

    I would love to try it but my concern is....last bike when I tried taking the headers off, I snapped a thread :sob:. Then I had to drill and do a helicoil job and it worked. But the stress it game me........

    2FC5360D-870C-4093-A402-F74BBCEDEE06.jpeg Just tried this on my 23 year old gpz500 hack. Pipes are only 10 years old but holy cow this tip works. Thanks for posting. Just got two bottles for £1 each in bargain buys! (Forgot to take before pic, but believe me they were brown.)

    Have heard of this, but never got round to giving it a go. Looks like I will be doing now. Thanks for the heads up.

    Just found a bottle under the the kitchen sink.
    Got caught trying to sneak it into the garage though! :kissing:

    According to the Mrs. It's available in the £1 shop & (unless she's fibbing to me) also in our local Tesco Extra for £1?

    Well ok not that good but it has given the old girl a bit of a shine. Might whip the cans off sometime and do a bit more. That link pipe will come up for starters.

    At £1 per bottle I can live with the price increase. Just don't use any more than 2 bottles! :eek:
