Just picked up an 08 ultra last week.When you rub your hand across the chrome mufflers they feel like they have over spray on them is this normal for the stock bike?Its pretty shitty if it is both by the way.:thumbsdn:

Try some 0000 steel wool and WD 40 as a lubricant and rub over lightly and see if that helps. Or....use some clay and a spray wax lubricant...and if that doesn't work...take the bike back and have the pipes replaced. There might be some pitting going on there. Many times brake dust will accumulate on the pipes and stick on. That particulate will eventually oxidize and leave a rough texture to the pipe and usually can be knocked off by the above mentioned means...clay - steel wool.
