Re Ikon Users

Hey guys, this is how my ikon turned out after around 6 months of use.
notice that gold color forming on the left tip. Have you people tried to do something about that? or just left it like it is?

Ive read its from the heat, but I dont think there is much to be done, a lot of guys kinda like it.

Ive noticed the insides of my exhaust getting a bit yellow too, I will do what ever it takes to clean it up, I love the look of nice new shiny polished stainless steel.

i used some wright's silver polish followed by mother's mag and aluminum polish. i found that helped a little, but still not able to get rid of it fully.

well i guess if nothing can actually be done to it then i'll jsut keep it like that
looks cool sometimes but when someone else asks me what's going one then i'd be like "i dunno, guess it's supposed to be like that"

its ok, mine does that too, and it rains/snows too damn much here to even consider wasting my time to polish, guess I have to wait till summer...
