Scrape off as much off as you can with a blunt instrument and then Mr Muscle oven cleaner.
Other tips may follow

Burn marks on chrome aaargh!!! Scourer

Don't know what it's called (scourer or something) You can get it in £1 shops and nearly every where now. Tiny strips of razor edged plastic. Totally non-scratch. Amazing stuff - every biker should have. My HH pipes got coated with melted rubber - this stuff removed in seconds - works every time and will not mark pipes. I have tried everything else but this stuff is ace. Try it - you won't be disappointed! For best results, wait until pipes are cold. You also need a heat shield - by the sound of it - see my post yesterday.

As above but try ,petrol, nail varnish remover, WD40, none abrasive chemicals that will melt rubber, good luck

Thanks again for everyone's helpful suggestions Burn marks on chrome aaargh!!! 115684958 The solution for me was as follows (at the umpteenth attempt) Warm up engine with a few minutes tick-over (this has the added benefit of allowing neighbours to enjoy the HH sound reverberating from my shed in the middle of their Sunday afternoon. I lke to put others before myself). The pipe then warm/hot, a quick spray of WD40 and a brisk rubbing with the edge of a 2p coin. I had read somewhere that copper being softer than chrome, it would not cause damage. This seems to be true, except perhaps for a hair-line scratch or two. Finish off with a rub of Auto Glym chrome polish. Hoping that this note will be of help to others. Now all have to do is save up for a new pair of trousers !
