Hard to tell from the pictures, but it looks a lot like my pipes where battery acid spilled on them.  :(

If you do use oven cleaner I would spray it on a rag not directly on the pipes. You could get over spray and you donít want it sitting on the aluminum block too long. It can cause pitting.
I have the pipes off the bike so over spray shouldn't be an issue. Going to try a small amount on the under side first, see how it goes.

That sucks, were they ruined after that? Who knows what this bike has been through in its tortured life.

Unfortunately oven cleaner did nothing to remove the stains.

Looking at the photos again, it looks like S3 Steve is right -- those are battery acid stains and you won't get them out. That big black patch in the first picture looks like baked in oil.

Unfortunately the big black patch is far worse, it's a dent with  rub through nthe chrome. I'm already trying to polish a turd.
