I just sanded this pro circuit pipe and got all the rust and stuff that's on it off. It's scratched up from the sand paper but it looks better than a rusted and stained pipe. Now how do I keep the rust off for good? Is there some kind of clear coat o can spray on? Preferably something I can buy at oreillys or somewhere local. I don't want to have to oil it every day and have it just burn right off when I ride.

much ty. How to spot a paid forum poster/artificial forum traffic producer (see list of actions/phrases below):

Copius pattern amounts of phrases like “Anyone have”..., “Anybody know?”.... and their variations.

Thoughts?
Any help is appreciated!

Lots of scotch-brite, then buff the hell out of it and polish it. Then you could hit it with a high-temp clear, although it may yellow.

FYI for future reference, there are much, much easier ways to remove rust..

Just keep the pipe oiled with WD-40. Yes it will burn off when you ride it, but reapplying another coat of WD-40 after washing the bike takes less than a minute.

Positively, absolutely 110% obsessed with anything MOTO.

It wasn't just rust. It looked as though it was painted or stained black and nothing would get it off except sand paper.

OK. Yeah, WD40 works. You have to stay up on it.

The right way is to buy a new pipe and dry your bike with a towel after washing so it doesnt rust. Since you sanded the coating off youre gonna have to scotch brite it every so often.

Hey I used to work for the company that makes that product! Have you had good luck with the Evapo-Rust? They also make a product called Rust-Block that works pretty well as a preventative. It's not as easily accessible as the Evapo-Rust but you can order it on Amazon. It won't leave the pipe as greasy feeling as the WD-40 and protects a lot better for longer periods of time. It's also water soluble so a rinse will remove it and it comes in a typical squirt bottle.
