It's been a while since this thread was really active, but I'll take a shot at it.

If you're planning on getting the rust off the exterior of your exhaust pipe, it's a good idea to take it off. I gave mine a good sanding, then put three coats of the highest-temp spray paint I could buy, lightly sanding between each coat. So far, so good, but the problem with the stock pipes is that they're cheap and will probably end up rusting through from the inside. Not much you can do about that except go to stainless and, unless you are into the look and have the cash lying around, maybe not worth the cost.

cheers for that, I got the liquid paint from halfords the other day, on the tin it says up to 300 degrees, I might go back and get the spray because it said up to 500 degrees, but I'm no good at spraying stuff.

300 won't do it.

I went ahead and used the "300 degrees" paint before I read your last comment! it doesnt look perfect, but as long as it stops external rusting I dont mind, cheers anyway.

Not so worried about how it looks. The question is will it stand the heat. Let me know if it does when you give it a good run.

It seems like you bought engine paint instead of exhaust paint? 300 degrees fahrenheit is practically ice cold for the first couple of feet of the exhaust system . Even 300 degrees centigrade is way too low. I have even tried using barbeque grill paint in the past, and it just burns and flakes off after a few runs. I am using Holts exhaust paint on my scooter which is rated for up to 800 degrees centigrade (1472 degrees fahrenheit). It does not even dry hard until the exhaust has been at 392 degrees fahrenheit for 20 minutes. It been holding up very well.

Hey guy! Please stop typing in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS!

It's considered yelling and is frowned upon.

Thank you.

If you want to stop your exhaust from rusting from the inside you drill a whole in the pipe close to the end that is fixed to the engine and screw a grease nipple into it.Then periodically give it a squirt of grease which is smeared along the inside of the pipe while the engine is running.

The grease doesn't instantly burn out as you might think.

You can also choose very high temp performance grease to help your case.
