Re: Anyone Restore a Rusty Yoshimura Exhaust?
Having tinkered with doing this 20yrs ago, I never did quite find the recipe. PJ1, VHT, Tremclad BBQ, cooked in my Moms oven when she was at work or not, the result never lasted as I hoped, and never nearly as well as an original system.
I doubt Yosh or Vance or Hindle used secret paint, but my results always varied.
Now I don't know if this was because I applied it to a 2-stroke chamber, but once I just used the regular gloss black NON high heat paint on a dirtbike and it lasted way longer than any special paint on a streetbike. Ride duration, 2-stroke exhaust temp, sealing to head o-ring, I don't know why, but that old regular tremclad gloss black worked great.
Good luck, and if anyone succeeds with a rattle can solution that does a few years of riding and wants to showcase it, I'm all eyes.
