Pipes will discolor, period. I had V&H Bigshots on my '05 softail. Couldn't really see the pipes because of the chrome heat shield covers. The bike was well tuned, ran cool, but still the pipes at the headers looked like they were bruised from repeated beatings. Do the pipes you mentioned have heat shields? If not, if you want a solution, get pipes with heat shield covers.

I have seen many V&H longshots with this problem-exactly the same spot-my brothers FatBoy- same problem- V&H replaced the first set- then blamed the tune the second time...so brother bought V$H tune kit...same thing after following all of the instructions- he ended up living with it-sounded awesome! Looked like crap. Lefty is right, most pipes discolor- heat shields, or a different style of pipe is a good answer
