So, Ive ordered my nice new MV Course Ti pipes for the 990R...

The headers are a but rusty looking and i cant go installing nice new pipes without getting this looking a bit better :) I found this post (below), which looks like a good idea... and i can try on a bit of pipe that you cant see.. but does anyone else have anything else to add or a better suggestion?

maybe try this.

on my 2010 brute my exhaust cans the stock ones started to rust from being in the rain.

used some scotchbright pads, and some wd40 as a lubricant and basically go with the direction of the brushed finish you want the "brushing" to go in. a little bit of elbow grease and some time and you will have a back to stock finish. it won't "polish" it to a mirror finish but will give it a very find matt or brushed look, i think this is what you are going for. obviously if after that you want a polished loolk you can use a polish or a finer steel wool if you want to get the affect you want but i have a feeling scotchbright by 3m pads is what youa re looking for. the "non scratch" version of the scotchbright pads won't work, you have to get the "heavy duty" versions.

You could get them Ceramic coated.
Yea i was thinking of that as well... i wonder what colour would look best? The company i would look to use has these options. I dont really want a high polish look as that would not go with the MV Corse pipes...

Galv-Look?

OK.. was speaking the company and they have a new colour called 'titanium' which is pictured lower left... I have a feeling that none of these are going to match up with the colour of the stainless on the pipes tho.

Understand what you mean.On a F4 the pipes are hidden and colour is not as important as a Brutale.Polishing as Eddy has mentioned might be the go.

You can ask for a sample of the coating to compare to your pipes.
That's what I did.

I put mine in the glass bead blasting machine and then used different grade polishing mops (kit I bought from ebay for about £20) came up nice and still look good.
