    Is the bronzing around the tip area? or the canister? I think this is normal on the tip, if its what I'm thinking. Post up a pic... cuz if its what I'm thinking you cant really get rid of it, you could try to polish it with Mothers Billlet Alum polish.

    What kind of exhaust do you have? Is it the stock ZX6-RR pipe or aftermarket? Aluminum or titanium?

    Generally speaking, I've had good results with Nevr-Dull, available at Canadian Tire

    Dammit, he beat me to it but I'll pretend I didn't notice . Um, I'd suggest Never Dull - get it at any Canadian Tire Store

    It's not the number of breaths you take but the moments that leave you breathless.

    Just a note I fould that never dull put light scratches in my polished canister and frame.... but it cleans well. So if you want to use it as a cleaner go for it, but I'd recommend Mothers BILLET polish to removed the swirls. I dont know what type of finish is on the stock canister..... maybe I should take a look at one before I comment.

    exhaust going from silver-ish to bronze/goldish is pretty normal on stainless steel exhaust, just normal heat discoloration. not much you can do about it.

    you could try WD-40, works great for getting oil splatter off the rims and undertail
