Greetings Folks, WD40 on the exhaust pipes. Any danger?? hno
Not that it matters there is no kerosene,silicone,water,wax or CFC's in WD-40,the actual ingredients are a secret but if you check around you'll find it contians a great deal of fish oil,and is propelled by Co2. And your close it was for protecting the metal skin on the Atlas rockets originally. and then developed into aerosal cans and so forth.WD-40 is mostly kerosene. It was originally designed to keep ice from forming inside the fuesalge of old planes, when flying at high altitudes... hence the name... WD (water dispersant) 40 (40th attempt). The kerosene in the WD-40 will evaporate quickly leaving behind the 'fish oil' film. Works great on rust, just get yourself some scotch brite pads and rub away. Wipe it down with a clean cloth when you're done and go rip. Keep in mind that it is highly flamable with a fairly low flash point so leaving it wet on your pipes and immediately starting the bike could potentially start a fire.
