Will have to try that. I was advised to use a penny to scrape it off.

There's an even easier way to get rubber off exhaust, oven cleaner. Get the exhaust hot, spray some oven cleaner on it. Let it sit for a bit. Wipe off. It is safe for chrome as oven racks are often chrome.

Do NOT spray directly on your pipes! It will ruin your paint. Instead I take the bike out for a spin to heat up the pipes, then put a rag on the ground far away from the bike, spray oven cleaner on the rag and then put the rag on the hot pipes. Leave it for 5-10 minutes and wipe away!

It's good you had your boots on. Would have hurt otherwise.

FYI

I use oven cleaner to remove gun stock finishes, works terrifically. It will not only ruin your paint it will remove it.
