View Full Version : How to clean melted nylon off of Black heat shield?

I have Black Supermegs on my bike, and my overpants touched it...of course it melted instantly.

Any advice on save products/methods to remove it from my heat shield?

Of course this was only my 4th ride w/ the new pipes....just put them on....

If it were a chrome pipe I would recommend "oven cleaner"; however the black coating is paint based and porous and unfortunately what ever you use will most likely either take the coating off or leave a stain. I would still attempt using the oven cleaner and have a can of VHT or Krylon High heat paint available for touch-up.
