Default Melted pants on right exhaust pipe

Yes laugh if you want I sure am! I am new to the big touring motorcycles and I melted my dress slacks on the way in to work this morning. Now there is khaki colored crap on my heat shield on the right side, about where your calf would be near when your feet are down at a stop light. I tried that "goo b gone" stuff but it seems that has no effect. Does anyone know what would take it off the chrome? Thanks!

Easy off oven spray is the best. Make sure you cover all paint before spraying cause it will eat it.
Or if all fails go order a new shield.

Nickels steel wool and Penny's will scratch the chrome

They have a little thing that goes around your calf that is great.
I keep one with my rain suit or winter suit.
Doesn't look stupid either and cheaper that those pants.
And this lady is fantastic to work with.

I use an old penny.
Copper is softer than chrome.
Glad you are ok.

The penny worked, I used it after I just got off after a long ride, the gunk that was on there was soft, but it was so hot that it heated the penny. Thank you for the great responses guys!

Glad the penny worked.
I use it when the pipes are cold, still works.

Nice tip, Paul...guess your "two cents worth" was quite valuable, eh?

I must admit that I never heard of this...so, do you just rub the penny on the stained area...kind of "scrubbing" off the material?...and does it work for other stains...like boot marks?

I'm a college student on a budget, $60.00 for a pair of pants is the best I can do right now.
