      I think there is some carbon polish floating around sposed to work good, but I don't have any....perhaps see roo racing, he would be used to it...... :?

          the best thing to do is PAY ME to buff it.if it looks bad, then theres no chance of it coming up.or better still,buy a DEVIL pipe

          i can also clear coat it but wouldnt recommend it unless your selling it :?

            Alex at roo racing can re sleeve the pipe. Other than that a bit of turtle wax will bring it up temporarily.

            Or maybe your mum can help...................

              Carbon fiber doesnt just fade in the sun, it breaks down... so if the knuckles on your gloves have some sun fading on the carbon.. dont expect them to save you

                  alex will only do a roo pipe :shock:
                  you should be able to get a sleeve through a dealer that sells that pipe :roll: but i dont like your chances.

                    I read somewhere on tha internets that carbon fibre can be set with different resins, there's a non-fading uv resistant resin that should be used for stuff that goes outdoors.. obviously that's not what's used on the roo cans..

                      Yoshi pipes use this resin, they last alot longer and the quality is 10 times better than the above mentioned Roo. The sound is kept to a reasonable limit with the yoshi's too.
