Default Cleaning Exhaust downpipes

I'm wanting to know what is the best way to clean exhausts.

Going to tidy mine up while I've got the bike in pieces .

Its a stock curvy system for the record.

Thanks in Advanceski

Andy

I've been using Bar Keepers Friend and Autosol as per the recommendations in other threads, and that's worked pretty well.

Depending on the cleaning needing done, im a fan of fine wire wool, or scrunched up tinfoil, and coca cola.

Will say however, never tried it on the SV, but was an absolute godsend on my wee honda!

Cheers all.

I was wanting to find the cleaning chemical was. I knew it was industrial levels of swearing involved
