Cleaning plastic burnt onto pipe

Anyone found a simple way or solution to getting this off relatively easy?

I've got half my boot melted on mine and would like to clear it off

I posted this also on a local biker group. They said start the bike up and get the pipe hot then use a sharp Stanley blade to scrap off... It worked perfect

I then used autosol to get the last bit off which worked great on the end pipes and the top one but the middle (worse one) took a bit more work and I've ended up giving it a slight polished mark

Either ways it's 100% better now cheers

Seems to me that's how I dealt with removing some of Mrs. Poliziotto's boot from the exhaust system from one of our bikes, except that I removed the last little bit with steel wool saturated in WD-40 (while it was still hot). You wouldn't know that it had ever been there, if I didn't point it out to you.

I think I've also used emery cloth with WD-40, with similar results.
