Not as bad as yours but def getting there... I know the shop where I bought mine spray painted some spots with matching paint but NO CLUE what it was or called. Staying on here to see what Peops say
I may end up taking the bike into a few auto shops and see what they quote me for refinishing the pipesNot as bad as yours but def getting there...

I’d Take them off and painting with some high temp BBQ grill paint from Home Depot or Lowe’s.🤙I realize the lighting isn't the best to see the issue I have but these pictures should give a good enough look.
I recently bought this bike and there's what I believe to be some rusting, mostly on the exhaust but a little rust here and there around the bike only on black pieces. Has anyone encountered this before and got the rust off/repainted the rusted parts?
I realize it's not a big deal and purely an aesthetic issue, but if there's a good way to re finish the exhaust pipes especially, I'd love to do it. Thanks! View attachment 124106

Not sure I'm sold on trying gunkote for the finish but I've never heard of Flitz before. I'll give that a shot for clearing off all the rust before I repaintDo not sue me if this does not work but you could try removing the rust with Flitz and repainting the pipes with Gunkote.

How many cans of each do you think I'd need?Sand them with 220 and paint them with 4 coats of vht and then 4 coats of the semi flat and let them dry for a day and reinstall them. After that follow the curing process on the can of VHT. It will last at least 10 years if cured right.
