Singing the exhaust pipe blues? Do you have melted plastic or heat stains on your chrome exhaust pipes? Get Blue Job and clean your pipes!

Blue Job Can

Once again HLFX Dave from the Road Grits Cafe comes through with another product reccomendation. Yes, Dave knows his Love Rubs!

I’m not much into cleaning and polishing. My bike is no trailer queen show bike, but I was pissed when some plastic got melted onto my pipes. This can happen from sneaker and shoe soles coming in contact with the pipes, rainwear, stray plastic bags in the wind, etc… Another common problem is bluing of the pipes from heat. Dave suggested I get Blue Job to clean my pipes.

This polish with the funny name is highly reccomended for cleaning chrome exhaust pipes and removing heat stains. It is available at J&P Cycle.

Regarding the J&P Cycle website: you can go to J&P and do a search using product name. J&P Cycle has Rider Forums where people discuss products and problems like cleaning stains and melted plastic off their pipes.

  1. “If you have any secret techniques for cleaning your pipes or have experience with Blue Job”

  2. I think you can get this at B&J Cycle also.

  3. Wow, so it’s not a gag after all! This seems a good product for married men, since they can now give themselves a blue job. Since my pipes are brand new, I probably won’t need to clean them for a while, but when I do, I’ll certainly try this product. I don’t think there’s a biker out there who doesn’t appreciate having his pipes cleaned.

  4. Hello.
    When working at the dealership I had a coworker who tried to tell people to use those little green nylon scrub pads to remove plastic… yeah, don’t do that. It doesn’t know plastic from chrome, and it’ll scratch it all off. If it’s just plastic, the best way to get it off is to ride your bike. As it heats up & cools down repeatedly it becomes brittle and flakes off. So if you have the time & don’t need a show-sparkle right away, just go for a ride. It will fall off on its own.
    As for the bluing, I’ve heard Blue job works well, to a point, but I don’t have first hand knowledge of that. My heat shields cover up the blue on mine.
    Thanks for posting, I’ll catch you on the road.

  5. I have blue on part of my exhaust, right behind where it goes from two into one. ( I know what this sounds like, but seriously!) H always said I can’t get that off. I think I’ll take a picture of it now, try this stuff and see if it really works. Not that I’m doubting Dave, mind you. Then, I can take a pic of my new shiny pipes (I hope). Thanks RC and Dave.

  6. I can’t stop laughing long enough to type anything………lmaooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

    Any suggestions for ball joints? Oh dear Lord……I’m hurting……….

  7. I use Colonel Brassy to clean my chrome.. dont have to worry about bluing because my heat shields cover it. You can get Colonel Brassy at my shop for 18.00 for a 16 oz bottle. Its a all metal cleaner (brass, copper, chrome,stainless steel,aluminum.silver,gold) also works well on Fiberglass,Plastic and Porcelain

  8. Blue Jobs, B & J Cycle, Cleaning your pipes!
    L.O.L. My mind went straight into the gutter.

    I too have heat shields. I can’t see the blue. Not that I wouldn’t mind seeing my pipes get blown. I mean blued. Seriously though, I don’t mind the blue when you can see it. To me, as long as the pipes are clean, and the bike is clean, the blue is like an old pair of boots or a broken in biker jacket. It looks like you actually ride, not like you just bought your boots, jacket and bike five minutes ago.

  9. I want to say something, but I am just at a loss for words….

  10. I found it works ok on the blues. It has to be higher quality chrome, not all that great on standard pipes that are covered with the covers, but it does work. It did do the trick on the stains and melted rubber great. “When things get to hot, blue job hits the spot. Just wet and rub, no need to scrub. So rub one out and watch it shine, just a little effort and you’ll feel fine.”


  11. Ladies,
    Give your hubby Blue Job…he will love it!! 😉

  12. But, it ‘s not his birthday yet! 😀

  13. I have been contacted by the president and inventor of Blue Job. Please know that this is no ordinary chrome polish. Unlike other chrome polishes that may relay on abrasives, Blue Job will not scratch chrome. Blue Job is is a de-oxidizer. It pulls the oxygen molecules out of the chrome. It takes a little effort on your part, but it sounds like really good stuff! I was told if you follow the directions, it should work wonders for you.

  14. I just bought some from the harley dealer, 15 bucks.I gotta 2004 v-star.This stuff actually works.,m looking forward to keeping my bike clean now, people actually point out the blue spots on my pipes.
