    Hi guys, what would you recommend to clean up a titanium akro can?

    I dont think metal polish like autosol would work as titanium isnt shiny.

    Just looking at ways to make the can look like new

    Thanks

    Has it been through a heat cycle with grease or oil etc on it?

    A mate of mine installed one, ran it without cleaning and had dark brown stains all over it. Tried all sorts to remove it but couldnt.

    I keep ontop of mine with brake cleaner. Wash the bike with normal car shampoo etc, rinse then spray down the exhaust with the brake cleaner to remove any residue.

    I’ve heard WD40 is a good cleaner for Titanium but it depends on how shitty it is I guess.
